A powerful new processor, improved mobile computing platform and high performance graphics, along with the ruggedness needed to perform in harsh and demanding environments, makes the new Getac S400 well suited for professionals working in demanding environments, including military, police, fire, and other field service industries.

The increased performance of the upgraded Getac S400 begins with the next generation Intel Core processor offered in four options, including the powerful i7-4610M vPro processor.

The large 14-inch display is available with a brilliant 800 NITS QuadraClear upgrade for easy viewing in direct sunlight that also includes convenient glove-friendly multi-touch.

The S400 is also equipped with the Intel HD Graphics card, which is now integrated directly into the processor to provide increased performance over the previous model.
