The ToughPad FZ-G1 lives up to its name and is well suited to outdoor use. You are paying quite a premium for that rugged design, but it’ll earn its keep on building sites and other environments that would be too harsh for a conventional laptop or tablet.

Panasonic made headlines recently when it showed off a prototype 20-inch tablet with ultra-high-def 4k resolution. The ToughPad FZ-G1 is a bit more down to earth, but will probably be of more practical use for its target audience – people who work...

The Toughpad lives up to its claim of offering business users a close to unbreakable Windows 8 tablet, which, thanks to the inclusion of Becrypt software, is also as secure as it can be. However costing a hefty £2,000 and featuring average battery life...

The performance is solid, it lives up to its reputation of being tough and rugged, but the price will put it out of the reach of smaller business and individuals. On the other hand, if you need a tablet that you can be sure won't let you down in tough workplaces, then it’s hard to fault the FZ-G1.

However, although it very much earns five stars for design and technical merit, its range of features isn't going to be required by every small business. If you require its rugged durability and customisable port, then it's head and shoulders above every other tablet on the market. It's also a fair bit more expensive than other tablets and hybrid laptops...

The biggest drawback, however, is the price. At £1,500 (ex. VAT) for the entry-level configuration reviewed here, this is one expensive tablet. If you're likely to want any of the options and accessories, be prepared for further 'sticker shock'.

As a one-off purchase though, the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 could prove tough to justify given its price, but its target market will surely feel the benefit of volume discounts. If stylus use is important then it could prove challenging but as a rugged tablet, it'll survive a soaking and it is certainly robust just don’t be fooled by that metallic finish, there’s a fair bit of plastic here too.

That’s a huge wodge of cash and the price, along with the rugged design, mean the Toughpad is a niche product. It’s got rock-solid construction throughout and the computer underneath is responsive and versatile.
