There's rugged computing, and then there's rugged computing -- and the new Ruffneck PC from GE Fanuc's Computer Dynamics subsidiary is ready to handle just about anything you can throw at it. The unit sports a 15-inch touchscreen LCD that can be used with gloves on, a 1.6GHz Pentium M, 2GB of RAM and a 40GB disk (with a CompactFlash-based SSD option for even more toughness), all wrapped up in a thermally-managed enclosure that allows operation in temperatures as low as -40 and as high as 140 degrees Fahrenheit. All that resiliency means the Ruffneck clocks in just a little larger than your average Toughbook, however -- you're looking 45 pounds of wall-mounted Windows XP action. No word on price, but if you're in an environment where you might actually need one of these things, we're guessing you've got the budget for it.
