Panasonic announced today that it has upgraded some of its Toughbook notebooks with the Centrino 2 chipset from Intel. Both the Toughbook CF-52 and Toughbook CF-74 now use the Centrino 2 platform. As part of the Centrino 2 platform the systems now have 802.11n Wi-Fi.

The machines use 160Gb HDD and Intel Centrino 2 processor technology. The CF-52 has a 15.4-inch LCD and the CF-74 is a 13.3-inch machine. The updated CF-52 will ship in August starting at $1949 and the CF-74 will start at $3199.

"In addition to driving innovation in mobile computing, Panasonic also commits to our resellers and customers that we will help them manage image stability through measured product changes over time," said Kyp Walls, director, product management, Panasonic Computer Solutions Company. "Both the Toughbook 74, which has been a workhorse for field forces since its initial launch in 2006, and the desktop replacement Toughbook 52, launched last year, are undergoing their first significant upgrades after a year of image stability. Through these measures, we help to achieve our dual aim of enhanced ROI and lowered total cost of ownership."
