2 Reasons For

Panasonic Has Good Tablet Reviews

On average tablets from Panasonic are rated 80%, which is in the top 38% of all tablet computer manufacturers that we have assessed.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

At 64 gigabytes, the Panasonic Toughbook CF-U1 has a fairly large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that came out around the same time as the Toughbook CF-U1. The average internal storage capacity of similar spec tablets that have been available for a comparable time to the Toughbook CF-U1 is 56GB.

We compared all the other 64GB internal storage capacity tablets to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad, the Acer Iconia Tab W700, and the DELL Latitude ST is also worth considering.

If you want a tablet computer with a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to consider the DELL Venue 11 Pro (128GB).
