The Panasonic CF-33 is far from a slim notebook, but there's a reason for that. The tough skin means it can take more than a a few blows or coffee spills.

As a 2-in-1 device, you can detach the tablet portion from the keyboard.

The 12-inch touchscreen on the tablet portion has a 2,160x1,440-pixel resolution. Panasonic says it will work when you're wearing gloves, or even in the rain.

When the tablet and keyboard are attached, the CF-33 weighs a beefy 6.1-pounds (2.77kg). But the convenient handle gives you another way to take it on the go.
