Getac announced today that it has upgraded nearly every feature of its popular S400 semi-rugged laptop, including speed, performance, sunlight readability and connectivity. The increased performance of the upgraded Getac S400 begins with a third-generation Intel Core processor, offered in two options including the powerful i5-3320M vPro processor. Clocking in at 2.6GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.3 GHz, the S400 semi-rugged laptop performs up to 91% faster than the previous generation and has the power needed for the most demanding tasks — from intricate mapping to live video processing and license plate recognition. The brilliant 14” display is now even brighter. Available with an 800 NITS QuadraClear display with glove-friendly multi-touch touch, the S400 can be easily viewed in direct sunlight. Other changes include the upgrade to Bluetooth 4.0, three USB 3.0 ports, a standard 500GB hard drive or optional solid-state drive up to 256GB and a higher capacity 8700mAh battery. The new Getac S400 semi-rugged laptop starts at $1,699 MSRP2 and will begin shipping in December.
