Rugged PC Review

With this latest version of the F5, Motion has significantly reduced our wish list. We'd still like to see a dual-mode digitizer (or maybe a capacitive multi-touch screen) at least as an option, and perhaps an SDHC card slot. And IP65 sealing should be obtainable. Else, while it may look almost exac...

Motion Computing’s F5v certainly doesn’t boast universal appeal, but it’s supremely well-built and, crucially, shot through with brilliantly realised features that few, if any, Tablet PCs can emulate. It is chronically expensive, but as a versatile tool for specific, niche applicat...

There's only one USB port and no flash card reader, but the sceen is excellent, performance i...

With this latest version of the F5, Motion has significantly reduced our wish list. We'd still like to see a dual-mode digitizer (or maybe a capacitive multi-touch screen) at least as an option, and perhaps an SDHC card slot. And IP65 sealing should be obtainable. Else, while it may look almost exactly the same, the 2010 Motion F5v is a MUCH improved machine and eminently suitable for any number of jobs out there in the field.

Motion Computing has kitted out its rugged 'field-ready' tablet with an impressive set of components, including Intel's latest vPro-equipped Core i7 CPU, mobile broadband, and cameras to the front and rear. There's only one USB port and no flash card reader, but the sceen is excellent, performance is good and battery life is reasonable. It's not cheap, but field workers should be able to use it with confidence.
