Getac announces ruggedized, 3G-equipped P470 laptop


Thanks to the FCC, we've already had a pretty good look at Getac's upcoming ruggedized convertible tablet PC, but it looks like the company isn't stopping there, today announcing the somewhat less-rugged P420 laptop. While it may not take quite as much of a beating, it will give you a bit more in the way of specs, including a 14.1-inch display, a 1.83 Ghz Core Duo T2400 processor (or a T7400 Core 2 Duo if the company's website is to be believed), a max 160GB hard drive, up to 4GB of RAM, and optional ATI Mobilty Radeon X1450 graphics if the standard integrated Intel fare isn't enough for you -- not to mention optional WWAN capabilities for those in need of a little 3G action. Earning the laptop its "rugged" status is its magnesium alloy case, sealed ports and connectors, shock-mounted hard drive, and various dust and water-proofing measures. Unfortunately, there's no word on what it'll cost or when it'll be available, although we're guessing Getac will be spilling those details at the official unveiling at this week's GTC West show.
