“Wireless mobility is now mainstream and mobile workers require durability, the highest degree of reliability and advanced functionality to effectively do their jobs,” said Rance Poehler, president, Panasonic Computer Solutions Company. “We’re pleased to introduce our T4 and W4, the thinnest, lightest additions to the most reliable line of notebooks available.
