    That keyboard dock looks like a beast

    And good on backlit keys. That is so useful.

    I don't have the need for ruggedized, but I think Panasonic did a great job on this one.

      I think Panasonic has done fantastic job on Toughbook line since its inception. Certainly has been my first choice to consider if needing something rugged.

      Tablet with keyboard dock seems quite a sensible idea to satisfy varying needs. And 10-point touch even when wearing gloves is nothing to sniff at.

      Their support over here is fantastic also. You definitely pay for what you are getting - but you get what you paid for. We have very few issues with hardware, but when we do it is sorted with paid overnight shipping both ways.

      We have several of their CF33 tablets, and our users love them for the convenience of popping out a tablet and being able to work anywhere in virtually any condition and still be able to go back and use a real keyboard for reports.

      I'm looking forward to getting some of the G2 units.

    Will do the job if you need the job done

    I did a deep dive last year when I was looking for a Microsoft tablet. I looked at the G1 then and the G2 is even more impressive. If you really need a MILSPEC tablet, this will do the job and it definitely has a certain cool factor.

    BUT, it's almost a pound heavier than the Surface Pro 7 and X tablets (all three without the keyboard) and almost a pound and a half heavier than the Surface Go 2 (which was what I ultimately bought.

    Unless you are prone to throwing your tablet down in disgust on Patch Tuesday, I wouldn't recommend it.

    10 finger touch?

    Why does that matter? Obviously you need more than one for stuff like pinch to zoom, and having four points so you can pinch to zoom with both hands would be great. What's an interaction that requires five points, let alone ten?

      How else are you supposed to play Twister on the tablet?
