Despite some past woes with faulty batteries, Panasonic continues to trot out its Toughbook line of durable mobile devices. including making an early commitment to Intel’s new Broadwell processors. A couple of weeks ago, it announced that it would add a Broadwell CPU to its Toughbook 31 laptop, and now it’s launching the Toughbook 54 with a fifth-generation Core i5 chip.

The Toughbook 54 is a larger sibling to the 31, sporting a 14-inch display instead of a 13.1-inch screen. Nonetheless, Panasonic claims that it’s the thinnest and lightest semi-rugged laptop for its class, weighing in under 5 pounds and just 1.2 inches thick. It’s built from magnesium alloy with a built-in handle and has been tested to MIL-STD-810G and IP5x standards for durability and dust-resistance. Additional features provided to keep the 54 working in harsh conditions include a shock-mounted hard drive, hard drive heater, and spill-resistant keyboard.
