Getac X500

Large screen. Endless expansion.

The Getac X500 ultra rugged computer remains manufacturer flagship model. By combining powerful 7th generation Quad-Core processors with a brilliant 15.6 inch full HD display and endless expansion, the X500 is the most powerful ultra rugged notebook.

Getac X500 features the advanced QuadraClear® display solution combines proprietary technologies for both screen brightness and anti-reflectivity to reduce the sunlight’s reflectivity and provides a more effective contrast rate than other displays, while still maintaining the battery life you need in the field. Configure yours with the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX950M discrete graphics with 4GB of dedicated memory and you will get faster speeds (frames per second) with incredible responsiveness.

With a state-of-the-art 2.9GHz Intel® Core® i7 Quad-Core processing technology, the X500 is the most powerful fully rugged notebook on the market today. The Quad-Core processor is ideally suited to handle the multi-tasking necessary in today’s complex work environments. When you run a processor-intensive application on the X500, the processor frequency in the active cores will dynamically increase up to 3.9GHz, providing the performance increase necessary for a timely response to mission critical information. Every Getac X500 includes Hyper-Threading allowing you to run demanding applications simultaneously while maintaining system responsiveness. With Hyper-Threading, the X500 keeps the system more secure, efficient, and manageable while minimizing impact on productivity.

The Getac X500 offers an expansion chassis that truly distinguishes itself from other rugged notebooks. With two slots for either PCI or PCI Express 3.0, the X500 with expansion chassis combines the expandability of a desktop computer with the portability of a rugged notebook.

The X500 can be configured with dual 500GB drives with RAID 0 or RAID 1 with Windows Server 2012 providing either maximum capacity and performance or mirror drives for maximum protection, depending on your needs. For a full rugged server with up to 5TB of storage and dedicated RAID card supporting RAID 0, 1 & 5.

With four USB 3.0 ports, two serial ports, dual Ethernet ports and a VGA port among others, the X500 has plenty of ports to connect the peripherals that you use.

Only Getac manufactures rugged computers down to the chassis. Built from high quality magnesium alloy, the X500 features four main casings specifically engineered to protect the computer against drops, shocks, spills, vibration and more. The sealed design of the Getac X500 protects it against dust and moisture. The X500 has been independently tested and certified to MIL-STD-810G, IP65 and MIL-STD-461G standards.

Getac is one of the largest manufacturers of magnesium alloy computer chassis in the world. Our expertise in manufacturing the housing itself provides key insight into how to make them stronger. Sealed doors and ports provide an ingress protection against dust, moisture and water, allowing the X500 to be certified to an IP65 rating. Accidents can take your equipment out of service when you least expect it, especially in a rugged environment, which can cause costly equipment downtime.
That is why Getac has introduced accidental damage as standard under our new Bumper-to-Bumper warranty, to help minimize your enterprise IT costs.

Bumper-to-Bumper is your hassle-free guarantee, supported by the best Pack & Collect logistics service in Europe, and rapid repair and return by Getac’s in-house experts. That means you can depend on us to have your unit back in service within days.
