Getac has released updated versions of its V100 and V200 rugged convertible tablets, allowing a hybrid tablet and laptop experience in the most extreme environments.

 
The fourth generation V-series feature a 2.6GHz Intel Core i5-3320M or 2.9GHz Core i7-3520M processor with vPro technology, helping boost speeds by 251 percent and 177 percent respectively over the previous models. Graphics responsiveness is also up by more than four times, thanks to the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4,000.
 
The real selling point of these devices, however, is their rugged design, which can withstand a bit more of a beating than an iPad. Both models are fully MIL-STD 810G and IP65 certified, which means they can resist electric shocks, vibration, and high drops, and they can even operate at extreme temperatures (a freezing -20 degrees Celsius to a searing 60 degrees Celsius).

Since you might be wandering the desert with one of these, the latest models now come with QuadraClear, which makes the screens readable in direct sunlight. The touchscreen has also been adapted so that it will be usable by people wearing thick industrial gloves. Both models can also be configured to feature LTE mobile connections.
 
“Now in its fourth generation, our V-series is a proven workhorse in flight-line maintenance, field service, and the utility and oil & gas sectors,” said Jim Rimay, president of Getac. “Updating our convertible tablets is part of our initiative to incorporate the latest technologies across the full line of rugged and semi-rugged notebook computers.”
 
To prove the point of just how durable these hybrid devices are, Getac is also offering a five-year warranty.
