GETAC UPGRADES ITS POPULAR V100 RUGGED CONVERTIBLE PC



Intel® Core™ i7 Processor, 1200 NITs QuadraClear™ Display, Glove-Friendly Multi-Touch Display All Protected with Magnesium Alloy Casing and 5-Year Warranty.

Sydney, Australia. July 16, 2010 – Tough Corp, a leading supplier of rugged laptops that meet the demands of field-based applications, is upgrading its popular Getac V100 fully rugged convertible tablet with several new features and upgrades, including an Intel Core™ i7 1.2 GHz processor, the fastest dual-core processor of any rugged convertible on the market.

Tests show the new V100 clocks in at up to 47% faster than its predecessor by combining Turbo Boost Technology for processor-intensive applications and a 4MB Intel Smart Cache, readily available to each of the processor cores, to ensure maximum performance whenever and wherever it's needed. For field workers who find themselves in dangerous and extreme environmental conditions, system speed and performance is a critical and mandatory feature and the V100 convertible now offers the fastest in its class.

Another important feature of a rugged laptop computer is the ability to view the display in direct sunlight. The V100 offers Getac's exclusive QuadraClear™ technology, which allows easy viewing in direct sunlight by incorporating special anti-reflective coatings, linear and circular polarizers, and a 1200 NIT LED display. In addition, the V100 provides glove-friendly, multi-touch technology for easy operation of its 10.4-inch display in extreme environments where industrial gloves are essential.

“The V100 fully rugged convertible laptop has always been very popular because of its advanced feature set and super bright 1200 NITS screen and full size keyboard,” said Lee Shardlow, Sales Manager, Tough Corp. “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.”

Weighing a comfortable 2.3 Kg, the V100 is MIL-STD-810G and IP65 compliant and ready for almost any environment or extreme working conditions. Its Magnesium alloy case, shock mounted 320GB hard disk drive and sealed I/O caps and doors prevent damage from solid particles, moisture, and sudden impacts often associated field applications.

The V100, which easily transforms into a rugged tablet PC with one quick rotation of the display, includes a number of additional standard features including a full-size waterproof, 83-key membrane keyboard for ease of use, Windows 7 (downgradable to Windows XP), an integrated 200 degree reversible 2.0MP webcam, PCMCIA expansion slot and SD card reader, wireless Bluetooth and the industry-leading 5-year warranty.

Optional features include MIL-STD 461F, SATA 80GB SSD drive, dual-touch mode 1200 NITs QuadraClear™ sunlight readable LED display (multi-touch and digitizer), 83-key waterproof backlit rubber keyboard, fingerprint scanner, 3G Gobi™ 2000, and GPS system.
