Panasonic ToughBook Y2 review: Panasonic ToughBook Y2

Like many other business notebooks, the ToughBook Y2 comes up a bit short on software. Still, you get Microsoft Windows XP Professional and a few decent utilities for creating CDs and configuring wireless options. While most other vendors offer a one-year warranty (and a few are cutting that to 90 days), Panasonic backs the ToughBook Y2 with a three-year warranty that is one of the best in the business; the company will repair broken systems quickly, wherever you are in the world. Panasonic's excellent tech support is available 24/7 via a toll-free phone call or e-mail, and a technician was on the line in just 45 seconds with an answer to our test query. As the ToughBook line is aimed at corporate customers, the Web site doesn't go beyond driver downloads, manuals, and FAQs.
