Getac Unleashes V200 Rugged Laptop

Rugged computing specialist Getac has pulled the curtains on the V200, a rugged laptop that boasts some pretty impressive specifications.

Out in October, the V200 is not your normal laptop, it comes with IP65 and MIL-STD-810G compliance which means that it's pretty much immune to the sort of abuse that a computer user can get through.

It comes with a 12.1-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 1280x800 pixels resolution and sports Getac's 1200 NITs QuadraClear technology which the company says, allows users to operate the unit in direct sunlight.

The V200 can convert seamlessly from a tablet to a laptop and is powered by Intel's new Core i7-620LM processor that runs at 2Ghz and can go up to 2.8GHz but consumes only 25w.

As expected, it comes with sealed I/O caps which prevents dust, water and others damaging the electronics. The rest of the specifications is pretty impressive as well; 4GB, 320GB shock proof hard disk drive or a 80GB SSD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, GPS and built-in 3G.

Interestingly, you can hotswap batteries on this one without having to power it down and comes with an industry leading five year warranty as standard. As for the price, expect to pay around $3799 for the entry level model and up to $5099 for the top of the range model.
