Getac's 13.3" 9213 Notebook Is Rugged, Rigid

Scouting a new notebook? You may think of the usual suspects--Dell, Acer, Gateway, HP and Asus--but have you even considered Getac? The little-known laptop maker is dishing out a new machine designed for the business crowd, but unlike most business notebooks, this one's designed to handle the bumps and bruises that'll surely happen whilst traveling from office to office.

The ultraportable features a 13.3" WXGA display, a Core 2 Duo ULV processor, up to 3GB of memory, a battery that should last up to 8 hours (or so the company claims), a shock-mounted 250GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and an HSUPA mobile broadband chip. The 9213 weighs 1.7kg, includes a fingerprint reader and can be equipped with a 1.3MP webcam. Of course, the $1799 price tag may be a bit steep for some, but then again, no one ever said that a rugged chassis and ultra-long battery life would come cheap.
