    Getac Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged computers, is introducing the next generation of its V100 and V200 fully rugged convertible tablets. Both models can be configured with the powerful, third-generation 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5-3320M (MAX 3.3) or 2.9 GHz Core i7-3520M (MAX 3.6) processor with vPro technology.

    Blazing fast, the V100 and V200 clock in at 251% and 177% faster, respectively, than did the previous generation. The Getac V100 and V200 also incorporate the Intel HD Graphics 4000 for over four times the responsiveness versus the previous models.* The combination of improved speed, high performance, and fully rugged design will help increase productivity by military, utility, police, fire and field-service professionals working in the most demanding environments.

    In addition to faster processors and graphics cards, the V100 and V200 offer Getac's advanced QuadraClear sunlight-readable screen technology that allows clear views even in direct sunlight, and multi-touch pressure-sensitive screens allowing users to operate the tablets when wearing industrial gloves. Additionally, both models can now be configured with integrated 4G LTE communication for fast communication in the field.

    "Now in its fourth generation, our V-series is a proven workhorse in flight-line maintenance, field service, and the utility and oil & gas sectors," explains Jim Rimay, president of Getac. "Updating our convertible tablets is part of our initiative to incorporate the latest technologies across the full line of rugged and semi-rugged notebook computers."

    Incorporating a magnesium-alloy design, the Getac V100 and V200 rugged convertibles are MIL-STD 810G and IP65 certified, which guarantees the computer's resistance to shocks, vibration and drops, and maintaining operational consistency in extreme temperatures ranging from -4°F to 140°F (-20°C to 60°C).

    The V100 and V200 rugged convertibles are backed by the industry's best 5-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your V-series convertible is covered by a warranty that includes damage that occurs due to accidents and environmental exposure. The new V100 and V200 are available for order starting today through Getac-authorized resellers.

    We usta beat these things to death in the military. We had much older versions with the same casing (Kinda Heavy, feels like it was cast aluminum) but these things got dropped and ran over by vehicles all the time.

    I never understood how people can treat something like that...
    I understand if you dropped a laptop, but run a vehicle over it?!

    The company I worked for also was receiving a lot of used laptops that were assigned to their employees. These were HP 2730p tablets (plastic/aluminum). 99% of these laptops were so abused... It's like these people were paid to break these laptops...

    After jumping out of aircraft, these need to be able to withstand a considerable drop to the ground.
