Getac outs rugged notebook

Getac on Thursday introduced the smallest and lightest addition to its lineup of rugged notebook PCs with the 13.3-inch 9213. It sports a magnesium alloy case and chassis, while the LCD display and hard drive are shock-mounted to prevent damage in the case of a drop or bump. Taking the resistance idea further is a spill-resistant keyboard, touchpad and remaining surfaces. The tough exterior houses an ultra-low voltage 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and 1GB of RAM that can be upgraded to 3GB.

The LED-backlit display sports a 1280x800 resolution, and its bezel is home to a 1.3-megapixel camera with two digital microphones. Users also get Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, while 3G data network access is optional. The standard 120GB hard drive can be expanded to 250GB.

Battery life is rated at 8 hours, and can be extended to 12 hours with an extra battery pack that replaces the optical drive. For security, there is an integrated TPM security module and fingerprint scanner. Overall weight of the standard-spec system is 3.9lbs.

Neither pricing nor release dates for the 9213 have been announced.
