“Our primary system on the boat is a Toughbook 30, which is Panasonic’s most durable laptop,” says Neville. “We’ve had the system on the boat for almost six years, and it’s worked without any issues. It’s been dropped, banged and splashed. It’s endured hurricanes, gales, rain squalls and long, humid tropical summers. It’s worked every day for 23,000 miles in 17 countries. It’s posted over five years of blogs in every hemisphere, delivered thousands of weather GRIBs, and has kept us connected with business, friends and family when it matters.
