    Now all it needs is to contain an exoskeleton and you could be Iron Man.

    And why would anyone go with the HDD.
  3. "And why would anyone go with the HDD"

    Simple, because HDD offers higher capacity than and longer data lifetime than SSD.. oh, by the way, Getac offer SSD as an option.
  4. But its not painted millitary green
    so, its not get close enough to offerings from Corsair and Thermaltake
  5. The processors you listed here (Core i7-640UM and i5-560M) are not Ivy Bridge.
    Maybe the specs you listed are from the previous versions?

    Nonsense product. A well-rugged laptop today does not need to be a whole suit-case, like it was years back.

    One would be better off getting a robust laptop/ultra-book + shock-damping (and water-resistant) case separately.

    Had these at the last Airbase I was stationed at. We went through them pretty quite, the screens don't like wrenches being droped on them. They held up better than I would of guessed, the survive a drop from the wing tip of an A-10. Which was so cool, I kinda wanted to drop them on purpose. overall it was a nice product but the price tag on this suckers are insane. But if you are in an extreme setting they will not disapoint.
  9. This rugged laptop still doesn't have military-looks compared than Thermaltake Level 10 GT or Corsair C70 :D
