How to optimize your Panasonic Toughpad FZ-X1

You use your Panasonic Toughbook every day so why wouldn’t you want a laptop that’s running at its peak performance? Optimize your laptop by upgrading the RAM/memory and hard drive to maximize your laptop's performance. Let’s take a look at each one.


One of the most important components on your Panasonic Toughpad is your memory. RAM, also known as Random Access Memory, is where your computer temporarily stores your data so that your processor can quickly and easily retrieve it. It works like this: When you start a program, your processor gives a command to retrieve it from the hard drive. Once retrieved from the hard drive, your system needs a workspace to store that information so that your processor can manipulate and interact with it faster and more easily. That storage component is your RAM. 

A commonly asked question is, “Does more RAM make my system run faster?” Technically no, but here’s what it does do: It makes your programs run faster. More RAM allows you to run more programs or larger programs faster because you can now store more programs and information in your RAM. If the total number of programs or data exceeds the amount of RAM capacity in your computer, your system will see a significant loss in performance. When that happens your computer doesn’t just stop running, the processor just goes back to the hard drive to retrieve the data it’s requesting and reading data from a hard drive is a much slower process than reading data from RAM. We’ve all had a computer that “bogs” down, but increasing your RAM will help eliminate that from happening.

The RAM/memory on a Toughpad FZ-X1 is built into the motherboard and there are no additional RAM slots to add more RAM/memory.


The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-X1 comes equipped with a flash memory drive and cannot be upgraded, however, you can increase the memory capacity of your FZ-X1 by utilizing its microSDXC card slot.
