Torture Testing the Panasonic Toughbook H2 Tablet PC

My first big experience with the Panasonic Toughbook H2 was to take it with me on an on/off road motorcycle trip (that story HERE). This was a great way to test the Toughbook H2 in real-world adverse conditions. The Toughbook H2 did great, but I felt I had more testing to perform. There were still some ruggedized capabilities that I wanted to try out with the H2 that I weren’t fully tested on my trip. Sounds like a good time for some torture testing!

In order to capture all of the fun running these tests, I utilized multiple cameras. I had a few GoPro HERO3 cameras in the studio, so I decided to mount one to the Toughbook H2, and also one on my head. I also deployed a camera man to operate a third camera and witness all of the abuse.

In the following video, I have some fun indoors and outdoors testing the ruggedized capabilities of the Toughbook H2. This video will give you a good idea of how tough the Toughbook H2 really is:

Testing the H2 was a lot of fun, and I can’t believe it withstands this kind of abuse. You definitely don’t want to try these tests with any old computer- you need fully ruggedized construction for this kind of duty!
