About Getac Laptops
For over a quarter of a century, Getac has been a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, predating even the venerable Panasonic Toughbook brand by several years. Formed in 1989 as a partnership between GE Aerospace and Taiwanese electronics giant MiTAC, the first Getac computers were purpose built to meet the needs of the defense industry. Today, that military-grade legacy continues with rugged devices built for use across a wide range of industries, including public safety, manufacturing, transportation and field services.
First and foremost, Getac laptops are designed to be tough. They aren’t cheap, but that’s because they are the result of uncompromising R&D and engineering. Built from the ground up to be incredibly solid, these laptops are constructed from high performance materials including magnesium alloy and specialty composites that have been finely tuned in Getac’s own facilities. In fact, Getac takes materials so seriously that they have become the world’s third largest producer of aluminum-magnesium alloy.
Here at BJCS, we don’t mess around when it comes to durable, reliable hardware. I can’t tell you how many emails we get from manufacturers of so-called “rugged” laptops asking us to carry their products. As you may have noticed, we are extremely selective. Our reputation is tied to the brands we carry, so we look for laptops that have been independently lab tested and proven in the field to stand up to rough environments. We want any fully-rugged laptop we sell to brush off bumps, drops, vibrations, spills and extreme temperatures. Getac is one of the few brands we trust to meet or exceed our high standards.
If you want the latest and greatest tech, you can’t go wrong with Getac. Equipped with modern Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs, these laptops won’t make you choose between power and ruggedness.
It doesn’t end there. In addition to the raw brain power that Intel’s processors provide, you can expect a whole lot of other high tech features packed into a Getac, features like
- LumiBond and QuadraClear screens for crisp, vibrant, glare-free images, even in direct sunlight
- security features like OPAL 2.0 encryption, Trusted Platform Module 2.0, Absolute DDS and biometric scanners
- latest gen 4G LTE and WiFi technology, supporting the latest protocols and standards
- optimization for long lasting battery life, and
- lots of connections and interfaces to support both legacy and bleeding-edge peripherals.
Some of these features are standard while others are optional, but suffice it to say you can configure a Getac laptop to meet virtually any need imaginable.
New Getac laptops come standard with the best manufacturer’s warranty in the industry, even covering accidental damage (most manufacturer warranties only cover defects, and additional coverage for accidental damage can be very expensive). All fully- and ultra-rugged Getac notebook computers include either a 3- or 5-year bumper-to-bumper warranty, depending on the model. Coverage is comprehensive and repairs are performed by Getac technicians using only authentic OEM replacement parts.
