Getac unveils semi-rugged laptop featuring sustainable design
Thu, 28th Sep 2023

Getac has announced the launch of its next-generation S410 semi-rugged laptop, which delivers powerful processing and graphics performance in a sustainable new design without compromising on rugged reliability. The result is a versatile device that improves efficiency in the field while giving peace of mind to users in work environments where accidental knocks, bumps and drops can frequently occur.

The next generation S410 is the first Getac device to feature an Intel CoreTM 13th generation i5/i7 processor as standard, which delivers remarkable computing performance and rapid responsiveness to users. Integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics ensure a rich visual experience, while an optional dedicated Global Positioning System (GPS) chip offers significantly improved location accuracy compared to previous generations. 

When it comes to connectivity, the next generation S410 includes Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 as standard, with optional 4G LTE and/or 5G Sub-6 with integrated GPS, keeping users connected in even remote locations. 

The new S410 is available to order in December 2023.

Many Getac customers have particular needs regarding their technology, which is why the next-generation S410 can be fully configured to match different user scenarios. This includes up to three hot swappable batteries for those requiring exceptional battery life between charges, as well as numerous options in the media bay, from NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 discrete graphic controller, a 1D/2D barcode reader, DVD or Blu-ray drive, to a second solid-state drive (SSD) storage device or additional battery2. A wide range of compatible accessories and secure carrying/docking options enhance functionality even further for improved productivity in the field.

The next generation S410 is the most eco-friendly device that Getac has manufactured, with over 24% of the chassis made from post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials. This new design approach reduces both carbon emissions and e-waste during manufacturing, helping promote a more environmentally responsible future.  

Despite this change in chassis design, there has been no compromise on rugged reliability. Like its popular predecessor, the next generation S410 is MIL-STD-810H certified and IP53 certified, as well as vibration and drop resistant up to three feet (0.9m), helping protect against accidental damage in busy or challenging work environments.

Functionality is at the heart of the next-generation S410. Its superb 14" screen with Getac sunlight-readable technology ensures excellent visibility (1,000 nits) in internal and external environments. At the same time, multitouch modes support various use cases, meaning tasks can be completed quickly and efficiently.

Enhanced security features also help keep sensitive user data protected. These include TPM2.0 and Intel vPro technology, user-replaceable peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe) non-volatile memory express (NVMe) SSD storage, and multifactor authentication options such as Windows Hello Webcam, high-frequency (HF) radio frequency identification (RFID) reader, smart card reader and fingerprint reader.

“The next generation S410 is a powerful, yet versatile, device that excels in a hugely diverse range of industrial scenarios and enterprise work environments. Not only does it deliver outstanding processing performance, but its eco-friendly new chassis reflects Getac’s sustainable design philosophy, which promotes and encourages a better world where all prosper,” says James Hwang, president of Getac Technology Corporation.
