Reviews for the Getac V100, Intel Core i7 640UM

70% Getac V100
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $4,449 Getac V100 certainly isn't cheap, but it's competitively priced for a fully rugged convertible tablet with such advanced components. For example, a Panasonic Toughbook 19 with a 1.2-GHz Core i5-540UM processor, 2GB of RAM, and a mechanical 160GB hard drive costs about $3,500, whereas the Getac comes with a Core i7 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and an 80GB SSD. If you don't need something as rugged as the V100, the Touchbook C1 offers comparable performance and battery life in a much lighter package for $2,829. But if you need a convertible tablet that will shrug off even the stiffest abuse, the V100 is for you.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


640UM: The Core i7-640UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 2.26 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.4":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Getac: Getac was founded in 1989 by MiTAC Technology Corporation and GE Aerospace as a joint venture, and focussed in rugged mobile computing computers. Getac provides fully rugged notebooks, tablet PCs and handhelds for military, law enforcement, public safety, utilities, telecommunication, manufacturing, field service and mobile workforce industries. 


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
