Let us be clear about this, this isn’t your mother’s rugged notebook or you fathers or even your grandparents, this my friends takes rugged to a whole other level. And please don’t throw out any comparisons to those wussy Toughbooks (no offense) that IBM makes, those don’t even stand a chance next to these babies. The B300 has the kind of rugged that you might need if you were trekking through the jungles of the Amazon or in the mountains of the Middle East. Getac announced it is incorporating Intel’s powerful Core™ i7 2.0 GHz processor, MAX 2.8GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology, into its popular B300 rugged notebook. This includes 4MB of Intel L3 Smart Cache readily available to each of the processor cores, improving efficiency while increasing processor speed.

The B300 offers two display options — a 700 NITs display, and the best-in-class rating of 1400 NITs display, which includes Getac’s exclusive QuadraClear display for easy viewing in extreme lighting conditions such as direct sunlight and reflective conditions including sand and snow. An HDMI port joins the standard VGA port allowing a multiple-monitor battlefield-ready solution. The -20 degree low-temperature option is now standard on all pre-configured sku’s. The B300 can also be configured with a dual battery option that provides up to 22 hours of battery life on a single charge. And, Gobi 2000 mobile broadband technology is now available as a pre-configured sku for quick delivery.

The B300 is certified to MIL-STD-810G for ruggedness and shock protection and is certified to IP65 rating for protection from water and dust. Additional options for the B300 include the MIL-STD-810F – 509.4 for protection from Salt Fog, MIL-STD-3009 NRA & NRB for Night Vision and every B300 is Mil-STD-461F ready requiring only the purchase of a MIL-STD-461F power supply for electromagnetic interference applications.

A built-in security feature using Intel® vPro™ technology enables IT specialists to maximize hardware-assisted security to better maintain, manage, and protect their business PCs. The B300 has a conveniently located finger print reader adjacent to the touchpad for the security required by government and corporate data management. Configured with a built-in Smart Card reader, the B300 increases identification & authentication security on administrator and remote access accounts while security criteria EAL 5+ encrypts valuable data by hardware, making data transfer more secure.
