The Panasonic Toughpad 4K is a tablet aimed at a very select group: Folks interested in spending $6000 on a tablet. What you get for the money is kind of remarkable though.

Panasonic’s tablet features a 20 inch, 3840 x 2560 pixel LCD display with wide viewing angles, support for 10-point multitouch input and optional pen input. It’s a full-fledged Windows machine with an Intel Core i5 processor, discrete graphics, and plenty of RAM and storage.

It’s clearly not aimed at the masses, but it could find a place in professional environments or in the toolkit of graphic artists (with a healthy budget for gadgets).

Panasonic ToughPad 4K

Panasonic introduced its 20 inch, high-res tablet at CES 2013. It’ll go on sale about a year later, featuring a slight spec bump and a newer version of Windows.

Specs include an Intel Core i5-3437U Ivy Bridge processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M graphics with 2GB of video memory, a 256GB solid state drive, and 8GB of RAM.

It’s a fairly sturdy machine with a magnesium alloy and glass fiber reinforced polymer, able to withstand a fall of about 2.5 feet on the bottom side.

What the Toughpad 4K is not, is uber-portable. It measures 18.7″ x 13.1″ x 0.5″ and weighs 5.3 pounds, and last I’d heard, Panasonic was only promising about 2 hours of battery life. This is the sort of system that makes more sense for use around the house, office or studio than at a coffee shop — although some folks might think otherwise.
