Winmate M133K Rugged Tablet has recently been reviewed by Rugged PC Review. The M133K is a 13.3” rugged tablet with an Intel Kaby Lake Core i5-7200U processor, plentiful I/O ports and wireless connectivity options, as well as a built-in kickstand that allows for variable positioning on any surface. Let’s check out an extract of the review by Rugged PC Review’s editor-in-chief Conrad H. Blickenstorfer:

Tech and functionality upgrades for Winmate's feature-rich, full-size 13.3-inch rugged tablet for professional-grade Windows work out there in the field
(by Conrad H. Blickenstorfer, with photography by Carol Cotton)

The Winmate M133K is for those who need a robust, largely invulnerable tablet PC with enough processing power, connectivity, and display real estate to handle complex Microsoft Windows work and applications.

Just as Microsoft's Surface Pro and Apple's iPad Pro launched a "professional" class of more powerful tablets with larger displays primarily designed for the enterprise market, Winmate is bringing those benefits to vertical and industrial markets with the M133 platform. Field-ready ruggedness and functionality, of course, do come at the price of larger size and higher weight. Weighing 5.3 pounds and being 1.2 inches thick, the M133K is a substantial piece of equipment, but one that — thanks to good ergonomics and a very clever kickstand/handle — remains surprisingly handy and easy to use.

The ergonomically designed kickstand that remains surprisingly handy and easy to use.

The M133K impresses with its large 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel display that offers a perfect viewing angle from all directions, and shows no annoying color or contrast shifts. The standard 350 nits (we measured 375) is bright enough for most work, and a 600 nits option is available for predominantly outdoors deployments. The capacitive multi-touch display can be optimized for use with gloves, in the rain, or with the supplied narrow-tip stylus.

Onboard connectivity includes USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI, LAN and serial, all in standard size versions. New is a much appreciated reversible USB Type-C port. The device has optional RFID, an industrial-grade integrated 1D/2D imager or Smart Card reader, and also reasonably competent cameras suitable for documentation tasks in a pinch.
Thanks to its PC+ABS/die-cast magnesium construction and protective rubber overmoldings, the Winmate M133K is extremely solid and can handle a good deal of abuse. IP65 sealing means users won't have to shy away from rain, and the tablet has a suitably wide operating temperature range.

Offering significantly improved performance over its predecessor model, full-shift-plus battery life, remarkable ruggedness, a gratifyingly large and overall excellent hi-res display, the Winmate M133K represents a compelling package for numerous applications that not only require Windows in the field, but also enough performance and screen real estate for professional-grade applications. -- Conrad H.
