TELFORD, England, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Getac, a leading innovator
and manufacturer of rugged computers, announced today that it will offer a new
5-year warranty, as standard, on its complete line of fully rugged notebook
computers and tablets, delivered on or after January 1, 2010. The new Getac
5-year warranty protection will allow Getac customers to enjoy the benefit of
a 2-year warranty extension at no additional cost - a far superior offering to
the typical 3-year warranties provided in the rugged industry today.
Getac's line of fully rugged notebook computers and tablets are among the
most reliable in the industry, an impressive accomplishment when considering
the extreme environments that Getac products are typically used in. "The new
5-year warranty is a statement of confidence to the reliability of Getac
rugged computers," explains Peter Molyneux, Business Development Director,
Getac UK. "Typically, computers have been upgraded on a three-year cycle. But
with today's economic climate, customers are opting to keep assets into the
fourth and fifth year. Getac's new 5-year warranty will enable Getac users and
corporate purchasing departments to better plan IT budgets, ensuring there are
no hidden costs and full use of the equipment over its lifetime. In addition,
we're providing the reassurance that the total cost of owning our products is
essentially 'all-inclusive' for five years."
The new Getac 5-year warranty will also allow customers to minimise
downtime while maximising profitability, particularly in large utility and
government organisations whose process for requesting and receiving spending
approval to repair an out-of-warranty computer is a time-consuming process.
Offering the 5-year warranty provides IT departments with the opportunity to
better manage its assets by knowing the projected costs of a computer's
lifespan at the time of purchase. The new Getac 5-year warranty underlines the
company's focus on quality and customer satisfaction.
