Panasonic has updated its Toughbook 19F convertible tablet PC to include the Core 2 Duo processor and additional memory capacity. They also plan to launch a version that includes an integrated camera. The non-camera version is available now for $3,200 whiles the camera version will be available May 2008 for $3,700. For $500 more that better be one nice camera.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
