Getac isn't all that well known in consumer circles, but the company has been churning out ruggedized computing solutions for a little over a decade now. Their latest creation -- the upgraded V100 convertible laptop -- promises up to 47 percent better performance that its predecessor, while still meeting military specifications for extreme conditions.
"The V100 fully rugged convertible has always been very popular because of its advanced feature set and super bright 1200 NITS screen," said Jim Rimay, president, Getac. "With better performance, memory, storage and wireless capabilities, the new Getac V100 is more advanced and flexible as ever and even better suited for mobile field workers and users of rugged notebook PCs."
The updated V100 now ships with a mobile Intel Core i7 640UM processor clocked at 1.2GHz, Intel GMA graphics, a 10.4-inch sunlight-readable display, 320GB hard drive (optional SSD), up to 8GB os DDR3 800/1066 memory, 2.0MP webcam, and a bunch of other goodies.
