I was in Tokyo and I had a chance to get a hands-on with one of these.

>keyboard layout is terrible. Can't enjoy the deep travel because of this.
>trackpad for ants. Can't even tap to click
>awful display
>over 220000yen for a i5/8g/256g config. More expensive than a touchbar Macbook Pro.

Why does /g/ idolise these machines so much?

New Toughbook

It's a shitty overpriced Japanese laptop that nostalgic purists obsess over despite having never owned, used or even seen one outside of marketing/review photo ops.

I had a CF-W5 and it was a pretty cool guy. Keyboard was okay (pales in comparison to the ThinkPad I got after it) and you got used to the ant trackpad. Battery life was decent for its time (5 or 6 hours I think) and obviously you can throw it around a bit and it doesn't care.

Have the toughbooks gotten worse or does OP just want to b8 the toughweebs?

dumbass, that's not the cf-rz6

>> No.64660519

The ones OP showed are weeb trash, but the RZ series is patrician level even compared to thinkpads (was given one as a temporary device while I was over there on business, didn't want to give it back because my XPS feels like trash now)

>> No.64660788


Writing on one with same keyboard and touchpad right now.

>> No.64660987

I tried the rz6 as well. Same terrible keyboard layout, now with even smaller keys and smaller screen.

I'll admit it does look cute, but damn that layout makes it hard to shitpost on /g/.

Similar enough to nordic layout. No problem with touchpad or touchscreen. Full hd 16:10 and matte screen that is actually usable outside in the sun. 850 USD on YA with proxy and international shipping.
Love mine and would definitely consider getting another one after.

>> No.64661948

I have no problem with the ISO layout. It's how the keys are squished together, along with the small size of the keycaps that is the problem.
Though it's probably not impossible to get used to, just like the butterfly keyboards on Macbooks.
