Getac Launches Its First Light and Thin Semi-rugged Laptop

MELBOURNE, Australia -- As IoT applications gradually penetrate the market, the need for different grades of rugged mobile computer equipment will gradually increase. Today, global professional rugged computer brand Getac released the S410, the lightest and slimmest semi-rugged laptop among Getac's products. It uses the market's most advanced 6th generation Intel Core™ processor to achieve the highest computer performance and image processing capabilities. The design of the next-generation S410 is revolutionary; though the S410 is 24% lighter and 33% slimmer than the previous model, its ruggedness is superior. Rated MIL-STD 810G, the S410 offers 91cm drop prevention and IP51 dust and water protection.

This laptop is more rugged than other business-grade rugged laptops available on the market, making it suitable for those in the defense, public security, field service, and automotive maintenance industries as well as professionals on the move.


The S410 is equipped with a 6th generation Intel Core™ processor, which works perfectly with Windows 10. Creating a whole new realm of computing, the S410 offers low power consumption and faster boot speeds, and through Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, the processor works smarter by offering an automatic burst of speed when you need it, thereby boosting work efficiency. Users can choose between different processors as needed: General users can choose between the Intel® Core™ i3-6100U 2.3GHz and the Intel® Core™ i5-6200U 2.3GHz processors. Users with higher requirements for information security and processing can choose between the Intel® Core™ i5-6300U vPRO 2.4GHz and the Intel® Core™ i7-6600U vPRO 2.6GHz processors, and add a second built-in hard drive (128GB/256GB SSD) for smoother multitasking. For image processing, the S410 has a built-in Intel® HD Graphics 520 card to deliver outstanding graphical processing. Users who choose to upgrade to the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 950M dedicated graphics card will enjoy an even smoother video experience and fast processing of complex image data.


The S410 offers a 14-inch HD (1366x768) display or 14-inch FHD display (1920 x 1080). Professionals who work long hours outdoors under bright light can choose the optional 1000 nits high brightness HD multi-touch screen or 800 nits high brightness FHD multi-touch screen. Using the Getac LumiBond™ 2.0 panel technology, the touch screen is clearly visible even under bright light. Users can also freely switch between touch modes including rain touch, glove touch, and pen mode, which represents a major achievement for capacitive touch design. Moreover, to ensure uninterrupted power while working outdoors, a single battery in the S410 can last up to 11 hours; adding a second battery extends battery life to 22 hours. The S410's WLAN supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards and Bluetooth® v4.2 technology, providing users with excitingly fast network speeds.


To meet the diverse needs of professional users, the S410 offers multiple ports and expansion capabilities includingfour USB ports (USB 3.0x3, USB 2.0x1), RJ45, HDMI and VGA (optional) ports for connecting projection equipment, as well as a serial port (optional) for professional industries that for special connectors, such as national defense or automotive maintenance.

An exclusive custom I/O port is reserved for a 2nd LAN, PowerShare USB 2.0, Rugged USB 2.0, or Rugged LAN port as selected by the user.


The S410 is equipped with a 500GB hard drive, which can be upgraded to 1TB or with an optional SSD (128GB/256/512GB) to protect data from being damaged on impact.
