Panasonic’s 20-inch 4K Toughpad has a $7K price tag

Panasonic has introduced a 20-inch, 4K Toughpad with a rather hefty $7,000 price tag. Yes, seriously. 

So what do you get for 7K? An Intel Core i7-3687U processor, NVIDIA Quadro K1000M graphics and a 20 inch, 3840 x 2560 pixel IPS display. 

Additional features include 16GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, 2GB of video memory, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, Ethernet, an SDXC card slot, 720p front-facing camera, 5MP back camera, HDMI output, Mini DisplayPort and an optional Touch Pen.

Users can run either Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 Professional. 

According to Liliputing’s Brad Linder, the the ToughPad 4K is surprisingly thin despite its display size, measuring in at just under half an inch and weighing approximately 5.6 pounds. Unfortunately, battery life is only 2.5 hours.

“If the $7,000 asking price is too much for you, Panasonic is also going to offer a cheaper model with a Core i5-3437U processor and NVIDIA GeForce 745M graphics in February,” Linder added. “That version was announced a few months ago, and will sell for $5,999.”
