2Meet the Getac V110, F110
Getac is calling the V110 the industry’s “thinnest and lightest rugged convertible” and the F110 its “thinnest and lightest fully rugged large-screen tablet.” John Lamb, Getac’s director of marketing, told eWEEK that “no one’s ever challenged this industry,” explaining that manufacturers are loath to update designs because of the intense verification tests that must follow.
3Out With the Old …
The V110, on the left in this image, is 30 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than its predecessor, on the right. It also has a larger display (an 11.6-inch TFT LCD HD with a resolution of 1,366 by 768) that’s sunlight readable and features multitouch technology. “It’s hard to look at a 10.4-inch display all day,” said Lamb.

The V110 has a full-size keyboard that’s backlit and has a waterproof membrane. Getac says it’s 56 percent larger than the keyboard on competing devices. The V110 features a chassis of precision-cast magnesium alloy and has a rubberized absorption polymer at its main points of contact. It has a three-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty that includes damage due to accidents.
