Reviews for the Getac 9213

70% Getac 9213
Source: PC Mag English version
A pioneer in military- and government-oriented computing products, Getac has deep roots in the ruggedized space. In the case of its latest laptop, the 9213 ($1,800 Street), dabbling outside of that market means good things for business travelers. The Getac 9213 purges the notion that a ruggedized ultraportable should have a rough-and-tumble appearance, as its stylish metallic frame looks more like a mainstream product while retaining its business-rugged features. With the help of Intel's low-powered parts, this featherweight delivered more than five hours of battery life, but the 9213's toughness and energy efficiency may not be enough to warrant its bloated price tag. The Getac 9213's tough through and through, but not at the expense of good looks.

This light business-rugged notebook can take its share of abuse, but delivers mediocre performance. Your interest in the Getac 9213 will ultimately come down to how much you need its business-rugged features. Though its list price of $1,799 might seem steep, keep in mind that Getac intends to sell this machine to enterprise customers, who most likely will see a discount. The Dell Latitude E4300, while not as rugged, is roughly the same size and weight, can be had for $445 less (2.26-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SP9300, 2GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive), and comes with on-site service from the Dell Small and Medium Business site. Although the Panasonic Toughbook F8 lasted an hour longer and had better performance scores, the Getac offers the same ruggedness in a smaller package, and for $1,100 less, too.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

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

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

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.


Power efficient low voltage processor based on the Penryn 3M core that features all Penryn functions like Virtualization and Trusted Execution.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

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

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
