At CES 2014 Panasonic reveal the Touchpad FZ-M1, which the company claims is the thinnest and lightest rugged 7-inch Windows 8.1 tablet in the market. At 7-inch the device is pretty small, but don’t let the size tell you otherwise. The FZ-M1 has a great screen that is even viewable on daylight.
What’s even more interesting about this device is that packs an Intel Haswell Core i5 processor, which makes the Touchpad FZ-M1 a common desktop PC replacement when connecting an external monitor.
Although this 7-inch tablet running Windows 8.1 Pro is aimed toward business consumers, it’s amazing how much power you can pack today in just a small form factor device. The FZ-M1 only weighs 1.2 pounds, it has a nifty price point of $2,099, and you can also customize with many accessories to convert this device as an RFID reader, smart card reader, etc. Oh! And it is 5 feet drop rated.
