The 1-Year Extended Warranty for Toughbook from Panasonic provides Toughbook mobile computers with an additional one year of coverage beyond the standard 3-year limited warranty. This means up to four years of warranty coverage from the date of purchase. An extended warranty is useful when purchasing computers for a deployment that is expected to last longer than three years.The extended warranty program covers all the same repairs in the same manner as the standard warranty. It provides coverage for failures due to defects in materials or workmanship that occur during normal use. All system components are covered under the extended warranty, except consumable items. Coverage must be purchased at the time of buying the Toughbook computer.
