Why you can trust TechRadar
This tablet benefits from a genuinely rugged construction, built to handle harsh working environments and the most challenging conditions. While it will sink if dropped into deep water, it can handle shallow submersion and keep working.
Getac also bundled some great connectivity options on the ZX70, including 4G LTE and laser barcoding.
Using an Atom CPU was a questionable choice as it doesn’t deliver the performance that the latest ARM SoCs are capable of.
As this isn’t a budget device, it deserved at least one decent quality camera that could capture 1080p video.
And finally, using a proprietary charger on a device meant to go anywhere is an unfortunate faux-pas.
For use in a warehouse or up a mountain, the Getac ZX70 is the perfect companion if you like your tablet technology to keep on working. However, this level of abuse resistance doesn’t come cheap, and the underlying computing platform isn’t cutting-edge.
