Extreme Tech: 10 Hot Rugged Tech Devices To Go Off The Grid

Panasonic's FZ-G1 Toughpad

Toughpad FZ-G1, Panasonic's newest addition to its line of rugged tablets, also features 4-foot drop endurance as well as an extreme-weather and water resistant design. The 10.1-inch HD screen is daylight-readable and includes 10-point multitouch and digitizer, allowing for recognition of unique input from all 10 fingers at once. Equipped with Windows 8 Pro, a third-generation Intel Core Processor and USB, as well as HDMI ports, this Toughpad offers much of the same functionality of a laptop in a durable and portable package. The 10-inch Toughpad FZ-G1 is priced at $2,900, with a smaller 7-inch, Android-based counterpart priced at $1,300, according to Mashable.
