The Toughbook CF-C2 is among the first Toughbook models to offer 4G LTE multi-carrier wireless connectivity. This enables mobile professionals to remain highly productive by accessing cloud-based applications, sharing large files, streaming rich HD content, and connecting virtually wherever they are in the world. The ability to select through software which carrier to use enables IT administrators in multi-carrier, multi-national organizations to dramatically simplify the ordering and management process with a single stock keeping unit (SKU) for their entire mobile workforce, regardless of their geographical location.
Other Toughbook models now available with multi-carrier 4G LTE wireless connectivity include the Toughbook CF-31 rugged laptop, the Toughbook CF-53 semi-rugged laptop, The Toughbook CF-19 fully-rugged convertible tablet and the Toughpad™ FZ-G1 tablet.

The Toughbook CF-C2 employs an enhanced triple hinge design that provides durable support when rotating the screen from laptop to tablet mode. At 3.99 lbs with an ergonomic Y-shaped hand strap, it is designed for comfortable long term handheld use. With an optional lightweight battery, the device weighs just 3.7 lbs and still delivers approximately 7 hours of continuous power. And for maximum performance, the Toughbook CF-C2 offers optional 128GB and 256GB solid state drives.
It is designed to withstand a wide variety of work environments with a magnesium alloy case and shock-mounted flex-connect hard drive allowing it to handle up to a 30-inch drop to six sides, as well as a 12-inch drop from 26 angles. The computer also features a spill-resistant keyboard (up 6 ounces).
With its 12.5-inch 10-point capacitive multi touch HD screen, touchpad with multi touch gesture recognition, keyboard and available digitizer pen, the Toughbook CF-C2 serves as the ideal platform for Windows 8.1 – designed to provide fast and fluid experience equally via touch or keyboard/touchscreen input.
The Toughbook CF-C2 is built for customers in a wide range of vertical markets, such as emergency first responders, home health care workers, insurance claims adjusters and field sales and service workers. In healthcare, its fanless design means no air is drawn in or out of the device, minimizing the spread of airborne pathogens when used as a mobile point-of-care solution.
