Reviews for the Getac V100

50% Getac V100
Source: PC Mag English
When driving through rough terrain or enduring the worst that Mother Nature can throw at you are part of your typical workday, you need a laptop that can take more than its share of punishment. You won't find rugged laptops at your local Best Buy, but services from law enforcement to utility companies have taken to deploying them in every vehicle, and military personnel and field workers have been relying on them for years. The Getac V100 ($3,130 street) is lightweight for a fully rugged laptop, by virtue of a 10.4-inch screen that doubles as a swivel touch display. For all of its ruggedness, the Getac V100 isn't going to last you more than a couple of years if the processing components can't keep up.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


U7600: » 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.

2.2 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. 


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
