Getac’s new-generation S400 series notebook has the footprint of a business notebook, the features of a full-rugged device and incorporates Intel’s latest Skylake micro-architecture to boost performance.
Rugged computer manufacturer Getac has unveiled the first model in its next-generation S400 series semi- rugged laptop, the Getac S410. At 2.2kg and 35mm wide, it has the footprint of a business notebook but incorporates many features of a full-rugged device.
“The S410 builds on our success in the semi rugged notebook space, providing a combination of design, performance and versatility,” says Chris Bye, President of Getac in the UK.
The S410 can be specified with Intel 6th generation Core i3, i5 or i7 processors incorporating the latest Skylake U-series micro-architecture which boosts both CPU and GPU performance and reduces power consumption compared with the Broadwell series it replaces. Windows 10 operating system is standard.
The S410 incorporates Getac’s newest proprietary composite materials to enhance ruggedness. It has a splash-proof keyboard; rugged I/O door; flexible and durable handle and rubber bumper and footpad, with ventilation provided by the footpad from the bottom of the unit. Environmental credentials include an IP51 rating for dust, MIL-STD 810G certification and the ability to cope with 3ft drops.
A 14in TFT LCD HD 1366 x 768 display is standard, with a 14in TFT LCD FHD 1920 x 1080 high resolution screen optional. Getac’s Lumibond sunlight readable technology can be specified on either screen. Capacitive touchscreen technology means the S140 can be used in touch, gloved and pen modes even when wet.
Up to 1TB storage is available plus an optional SSD drive.
The 11.1-volt 4200 mAh battery should last a full day, but the S410 also comes with Getac’s optional a hot-swappable battery feature with a light indicator to flag to users if there’s enough power left for the main battery to be switched. There’s also a range of in-vehicle docking accessories.
Wireless communications include Intel’s dual band AC 8260, Bluetooth 4.2 and optional GPS, GOBI mobile broadband and RF Triple Pass-Through.
The S410 also offers multi-factor authentication including fingerprint touch technology.
I/O options including a docking connector slot, USB 3.0 connectivity and expansion bay for, for example, PCMCIA. In-vehicle and office docking units; a battery charger, and vehicle and AC Adapters are among the accessories available.
The S410 comes with Getac’s standard three-year warranty.
