Expert Review

While there's not a ton of customization available for this system, your options are still quite good and you can set up a really powerful laptop. You can pick from either an Intel i5 or i7 processor, and this system comes with 8GB of RAM though it’s expandable to up to 16GB of memory. While that's not as much as you'll find in a powerful mobile workstation, those devices aren't built to survive a six-foot drop like this one is. This pick comes with an integrated graphics chip but you can upgrade it with an NVIDIA chip that adds 2GB of dedicated video memory if you need decent graphics performance.

The waterproof keyboard on this laptop is backlit for nighttime use, and it comes with a 500GB hard drive, although you can add up to a 512GB solid state drive for even better performance. You get a 15-inch sunlight readable display in this system which is quite large for a rugged laptop, and there’s even an option to make it a touchscreen device if desired. Getac offers a five-year warranty which is about as good as you can get in the computer industry.Rating: 5/5
