This implies while it's extensively slimmer, lighter and more exquisite than Panasonic's military-review 12-inch separable, the Toughbook CF-33, it's not evaluated to withstand anything like similar levels of mishandle. 

Intended for versatile experts requiring an adaptable portable workstation/tablet half and half that can deal with "the thumps and drops of business life", the Toughbook CF-XZ6 has neither a MIL-STD confirmation nor an IP (entrance insurance) rating.

"We're accustomed to doing completely rough, mechanical looking sorts of items," Tucker included, "and plan astute this is the sexiest item we've ever conveyed to showcase."
