Getac announces 5G capable, fully-rugged laptop

04 Jun 2020

Getac has announced its B360 fully-rugged laptop with 5G capability, a full HD display and Intel’s 10th generation core processor. 

It has been designed to provide mobility, power, brightness and reliability in challenging work conditions.

The B360 is IP66 rated to protect from dust ingress, as well as high pressure water jets and spillages. 

The device can also withstand drops of up to six feet when in operation, and the latest MIL-STD 810H certification gives users complete confidence in its rugged reliability.

The B360 is part of the Getac Select Program, which draws on Getac’s industry experience to create comprehensive rugged computing solutions for specialised industry applications. 

As such, it is available in two distinct models at launch: The B360, ideally suited to the public safety, manufacturing, and utilities sectors and the B360 Pro, optimised for the defence sector.

The B360 is the thinnest and lightest fully rugged laptop in its class at 34.9mm thick and weighing 2.32kg.

Despite such a compact form factor, the B360 includes a 13.3” LumiBond 2.0 display for maximum usability in all weather conditions. 

The latest 802.11ax Wi-Fi delivers wireless speeds up to three times faster than previous generations. 

It includes dual hot-swappable batteries as standard; optional GPS for mapping, surveying, and tracking in the field; and an optional barcode reader for intelligence gathering at the scene of an incident.

The B360 Pro includes all the core technology specifications of the B360, along with a number of additional features and build options that are vital for military personnel. 

High-capacity hot-swappable batteries for more operating time between charges and additional serial ports to allow legacy and/or customised military equipment to be connected directly to the device. 

Customers also have the option to spec a PCMCIA, ExpressCard, or a discrete graphics card, as well as a DVD or Blu Ray drive as required.

“With the launch of the B360, Getac has once again raised the bar for the whole rugged computing industry. For the first time, customers across a wide range of industries can enjoy best-in-class speed, brightness and rugged reliability in a single device, without compromise,” says Getac business development manager Frank Baldrighi.
The B360 is available now. The B360 Pro will be available on July 3, 2020.
