Windows 7 Support Ending

Windows 7 Support Ending, Time to Upgrade?

Microsoft has announced that they are ending Windows 7 Support, along with ceasing security updates on this platform. For many of your computers, updates will be required, and the deadline is approaching.  

Two options are:

  • Update to a minimum software requirement of Windows 10
  • Consider a new laptop, with a minimum requirement of Windows 10 software and in-built Solid State Drive hardware

For a compatible laptop, CAS recommends the Panasonic CF-54 Toughbook; we carry and support this hardware.  CAS is currently fighting to get the Panasonic Toughbook in stock fast enough to meet the high demand for this model. 

It has a great keyboard, a convenient carrying handle, and a durable impact/wear-resistant shell. 

Here are the Toughbook’s specs:

  • Thinner design
  • 14” notebook with HD or Full HD display
  • Structural strength from honeycombed bonnet/hood and magnesium alloy
  • Optional VGA and true serial ports
  • Additional configurations:  2nd LAN, dedicated GPS, 4th USB 2.0, rugged USB
  • Optional DVD drive, PC card, 2nd battery, contactless SmartCard reader, fingerprint reader configuration
  • Shock mounted removable Hard Disk Drive/Solid State Drive storage with built-in heater
  • Spill proof across complete inner surfaces
  • 5th-generation Intel® Core™️ i5 vPro™️ processor
  • Bluetooth, WiFi, 4G LTE
  • 11 hour main battery life
