Getac P470 review


A semi-rugged laptop designed for a tough life on the road

Speedy and powerful ; Robust build ; Built-in GPS

Touchpad can be a bit sluggish ; Screen could be brighter

Getac P470 review


This ruggedised Getac P470 provides a good set of features, including a passive touchscreen and optional 3G connectivity. However, you may need to invest in an upgrade or two to get the battery life you require

Rugged build quality ; 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo processor ; Indoor/outdoor passive touchscreen display ; Low-power ECO mode

Little protection for the optical drive ; Fixed-position webcam ; Battery life could be better

The touchscreen could prove handy in some environments, and we approve of the use of a passive display that can be driven by either fingertip or stylus. A longer, better weighted, more pen-like stylus would be preferable to the flimsy one provided, though

Product Specifications

The P470 is equipped with 14.1 wide sunlight readable touch screen which offers readability to outdoor situations as well as indoors. WLAN can be instantly switched to a built-in 3G communication solution to maintain accessibility to networks without adding any extension modules. In the tough environments security always matters, the P470 has a built-in TPM 1.2 module, finger print scanner and Smart Card reader to provide additional 3 layers of excellent protection for valuable data. The magnesium alloy case, shock-mounted hard drive, and spill-resistant keyboard allow P470 to be able to adapt to daily environments.
