It is the first fully rugged detachable laptop in the market and features a magnesium alloy chassis and durable MIL-STD-810G and IP65 design.
At only 3.9 pounds, it’s good on the go with a clever built in handle that also functions as a kickstand,

and the broadest range of ports and integrated options in its class.

- CF-20 @ NBRInofficial FAQWill the CF-20 replace the CF-19?
Panasonic has not released a statement on this topic yet - the question has been raised to US Sales support on 2015-11-11 06:57 UTC.
The following points support this assumption:
- numbering scheme
- CF-19 / 20 Comparison sheet (see above section Panasonic Documents)
- roughly same target audience and rugged specs
- would make (business-)sense to bundle cf-19, cf-h2, fz-g1, maybe cf-c2 resources into "the perfect all-round rugged notebook" (quote Two Parts One Story video)
- RuggedPC Review describes cf-20 as successor to cf-19
The many differences, which effectively turn the cf-20 into an entirely different platform, probably work against this assumption:
detachable laptop with two ~30wh batteries, 800nit capacitive ips alpha 16:10 with hdmi+vga
, fixed ssd, fixed 8g ram
convertible laptop with one ~60wh battery, 1.000nit resistive circulumin 4:3 with vga
, quick-release hdd/ssd, 4-16g ram
, pcmcia+expresscard+firewireWhat is the drop rating?
according to Launchday Interview Paul Davidson video:
- 180cm (6 foot) for tablet only
- 120cm (4 foot) for tablet+keyboard
