Rugged notebook with large, hi-res display
(by Conrad H. Blickenstorfer)

Now replaced by the Getac M230, the M220 was aimed squarely at the rugged notebooks from Panasonic (Toughbook CF-29) and Itronix (GoBook III), GETAC's M220--sold also by several third party vendors under their own badge--provides a strong alternative to its established competition. Thanks to a slightly larger and heavier case, the M220 can accommodate larger displays--up to a high-res 1400 x 1050 pixel 15-inch screen that's perfect for graphics-intensive applications. The M220 uses proven Intel technology, making this a reliable, efficient solution in a rugged, well designed case that can take a beating. GETAC also offers numerous customization options to make the M220 fit just about any task: back-lit rubber keyboard, touchscreen, high-bright screen, GPS, various radio options, Bluetooth, swappable optical drives, secondary battery and various mounting and charging stations.
