Panasonic Toughbook 74 review: Panasonic Toughbook 74

Though most consumer laptops are covered for only one year, the ToughBook 74 is covered by a lengthy, three-year standard warranty. In addition, Panasonic provides paid shipping for repairs, along with lifetime, toll-free, 24/7 tech support--a package that's virtually unheard-of these days. The company's support Web site includes troubleshooting guides, FAQs, and driver downloads, as well as the option to contact a support rep via e-mail.
