P470 rugged laptop includes fingerprint reader for added data security.

GETAC : 18 October, 2007  (New Product)
Weather-proof and impact resistant laptop computer from GETAC is suitable for use in a wide range of harsh environments and is provided with added data security with the use of biometric fingerprint authentication equipment for access control.
GETAC has launched the new P470, a secure and rugged notebook designed to provide mobile users peace of mind when taking their work and valuable data on the move.

Taking work, and quite often, sensitive data out of the office can be very risky when you take into account the increase of probable accidents and the dramatic increase in the risk of loss or theft. The P470 protects against such incidents reducing the risk of valuable data getting into the wrong hands and lowering the failure rate of the hardware to ensure data is not lost. Lower cost of ownership is becoming increasingly important companies and the P470 is the ideal solution.

The P470 features a magnesium alloy casing that reduces overall weight by 25% and at less than 3Kg, with a specially designed carry handle, the P470 is a truly mobile solution. Magnesium Alloy casing also increases the P470 chassis' strength by 50% enabling it to survive small drops that can quite often occur when on the move. As well as featuring a shock mounted HDD and LCD TFT screen, thus being able to withstand vibration and shock conditions which can cause electronic circuit damage and loose connections, the P470 is also equipped with a G-Sensor to protect data from sudden drop or accidents. For more extreme conditions, the P470 also includes sealed I/O caps and doors to prevent solid particles and moisture such as dust, rain and spillages from entering the unit and possibly rendering it inoperable, making it the ideal solution for use in bad weather conditions or in untidy environments.

The P470 also possesses an array of impenetrable defensive capabilities to keep data safe from hackers or if the notebook is stolen. Rejecting unauthorized access thus protecting confidential information, the P470 features powerful functionalities for storage security, authority justification and integrity measurement. Firstly the P470 boasts a Biometric Fingerprint Reader, a secure and reliable authentication device for log-in or to access sensitive information. The Fingerprint Reader also eliminates the need to remember passwords which can be easily forgotten or hacked. And secondly, a Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) or 'Root-of-Trust', a chain of trust procedures monitors every step, from pre-boot to OS load, to guard against unauthorized tampering from physical theft of software attack.

When being away from the office for any amount of time, it is essential that you are able to stay in touch. The P470 offers various wireless connectivity facilities to ensure you stay connected wherever you may be. Enabling you to stay in contact with the office or allowing you to access the internet on the move, the P470 features built-in 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi to connect to a Local Area Notebook, now found in a multitude of locations, such as train and railway stations, hotels and more. Other options for the P470 include; Bluetooth 2.4G to allow you to securely connect to other Bluetooth devices, Wide Area Network GPS recording the P470's location, and 3G technology. For conferencing facilities, the P470 also features a built-in 1.3 Mega Pixel camera which is ideal as a web cam for video conferencing.

Taking a notebook on the move not only increases overall risk of damage and data loss but also comes hand-in-hand with other obstacles to prevent you from working efficiently, for example bright sunlight and limited battery life. GETAC's extensive technological and manufacturing experience within the specialized rugged market has lead to many breakthroughs in advanced hardware technologies including; GETAC's cutting-edge sunlight-readable display technology. The optional Sunlight-Readable LCD display has been designed to ensure continuous use under bright ambient lighting conditions. Intensifying an LCD's visibility, the technology makes the P470's display more readable and therefore usable in extremely bright outdoor environments. (An optional backlit keyboard is also available for darkened conditions). The P470 also features multi-bay options which can be utilized to extend all important battery life when a power facility is not available. (The multi-bay can also be used to support an additional HDD for extreme storage).
