    This is perfect for boats.The marine air and salt will get inside a normal case,I promise You.
    And Yes there are many marine monitors out(water proof) ,Marine pc makes a bunch .
    I work where the boats from deadliest catch have maint. on boats: pacific fisherman,seattle
    These guys all have a bunch of pcs in the bridge.And they dont last long.
    I could sell these all day long.
    But in truth,this is nothing new, marine pcs have been out for years.$$$$$

    They should have put it in a case that had an LED readout like the armband that the Predator uses. Then enemies would say, "OMG Nuke ... RUNNNN!!!!! lol

    lump has a point, these will be popular in the marine environment.

    While marine PC's are nothing new, they probably lack either performance, or waterproofing compared to this thing.

    I can see myself using these at work. Occasionally I am involved with indutrial automation projects where we use PC's and PLC's to operate processing equipment in a VERY dusty environment.

    Maybe if you are extremely short of space in your room you can mount it to your exterior wall and run cables in the window?

    ruggedization doesnt always mean Fool Proof, Water proof doesnt make it Weather proof and vice versa.

    Maybe good for use in any public area? Include a very rugged touchscreen LCD or LCD + Keyboard it could have many many uses.

    Eh, whatever, I like this thing. You could leave it submerged in water to help with cooling.
