Getac’s V100, the convertible tablet PC, has been introduced with Intel’s fastest technology system. The 1.3GHz Core i7-64UM CPU with 2.26GHz Turbo Boost speed gives a 47% better performance than the previous models. It also includes up to 8GB of RAM and 320GB of hard disk storage. The extended features include a rotating camera in a screen display of 1200 nits. This Windows PC was initially offered with the previous Intel Core Duo and Core 2 Duo processors.


While talking about computers, an ordinary PC may not serve well to someone who works in tough environment or dangerous places. Therefore, Greta came up with this solid and durable notebook PC. This smart computer is well protected by its magnesium-alloy case. In addition to this, a full size waterproof keyboard has been provided in it. There are doors that protect the ports from dirt and water. The screen has been designed in such a way that it can pivot as well as fold over its keyboard. By spinning the display, the whole system can convert into a tablet.

The V100 has a 1024-by-768-pixel, 10.4-inch touch screen with two different versions of Quadra Clear technology: the 500-nit sunlight-readable version and the 1200-nit version. This makes the content readable even in sunlight. A special feature is the multi-touch screen, which as the company says, can be used even when wearing gloves. However, a standard touch screen with an active digitizer is also available in this model.

The V100 has 1.3-megapixel camera that can rotate 225 degrees, allowing the user to have video conferencing and/or take pictures in either tablet or note book mode. A fingerprint scanner and a trusted platform module is also available in the device.
