While sitting in a hotel room working on my laptop, looking out at the pool and folks splashing about, it's normal to dream about a waterproof computer. Stealth Computers to the rescue. But, for the life of me, I can't figure out why it's a desktop computer. Wouldn't a laptop make more sense? From the video, I would say it's more for the accident-prone.
The WPC-500F is a waterproof, fanless desktop that is certified to operate while submersed in water, or just subject to a deluge. It has special cables for power, networking and peripherals with waterproof connections. The base model ($1995) uses a 1.6GHz Intel Atom 33 CPU, 2GB of DDR2 SDRAM, and a 80GB hard drive. It doesn't come with an operating system so you can select your own through Stealth's online system — it is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, or Linux.
