There are quite a few specific reasons why Panasonic Toughbooks are not available through traditional retail locations. Panasonic Toughbook laptop computers are in many ways different from more consumer oriented laptops. Panasonic Toughbooks are built for durability and in some cases are truly military grade. As a result, computer stores are not equipped to provide the level of expertise required when purchasing a Panasonic Toughbook.
Toughbooks are highly customizable and require specific, trained sales representatives with detailed knowledge of all possible integrated options and ordering processes. As a result, Panasonic has chosen a channel driven approach to selling Toughbooks. Panasonic partners with a relatively small network of highly trained value added resellers who engage customers and potential customers on all aspects of procuring a Toughbook. You may still be asking yourself why Panasonic Toughbooks are not also available in stores. There are actually pros and cons to both approaches. If you could find a Toughbook in a traditional store that sells other computers and IT products, the Toughbook brand would be diluted through insufficient sales support.
Keep in mind that typically a Panasonic Toughbook is far more expensive than a normal laptop. The primary consumers of Panasonic Toughbooks are the US Military, police departments, fire departments, EMS outfits, small, medium & large businesses, as well as general consumers and professionals who need a highly durable laptop.
