Running Windows Server 2012 and designed for mobile command centres, the briefcase-sized X500 is a mobile system which combines the capabilities of a laptop and server.
The commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) device is powered by a 1.73GHz Intel Core i7-820QM processor, and has 16GB of RAM alongside 500GB SATA notebook storage. It offers up to 5TB RAID storage (0, 1 or 5 data management).
Graphics are handled by an Nvidia GeForce GT330M card, delivering images to the X500’s 15.6-inch 800NITs QuadraClear display which Getac claims is “sunlight-readable.”
Other features include dual 10/100/1000 base-T Ethernet ports, three USB 2.0 ports, one USB/eSATA combo port, two serial 9-pin D-sub ports, Bluetooth, and 802.11 a/b/g/n WLAN.
The X500 weighs 8.6kg, which is expected from a rugged mobile server, and measures 410x290x119mm. It is MIL-STD-810G certified for ruggedness and shock protection, and has IP65 rating for water and dust resistance.
Like other Getac rugged products, the X500 is covered by a five-year warranty. Resellers and customers are advised to view the full terms of the warranty on Getac’s Web site.
