The V100 notebook and tablet, launched this week, comes with a magnesium alloy casing and has been designed to withstand extremes of temperature, according to its maker, Getac.

The 2.2kg laptop comes with a rotating, polarised touchscreen, 10.4-inch LCD display, which allows it to be transformed into a tablet PC. Aimed at specialist niches such as the military, the V100's display can also be altered to make it readable in bright-sunlight conditions, such as those found in the Gulf, the maker claims.

The V100 also has several features that allow it to operate in low temperatures — down to -20°C — including a specifically designed optional hard-drive heater combined with a low-temperature battery.

Getac also claims the V100 is capable of withstanding heavy rain and spillages and is immune to damage from airborne dust and debris. It comes with an Intel Core Duo ULV 1.2 GHz processor and has power-saving technology to extend battery life.
