Personal computers (PCs) are becoming ubiquitous, not only in office environments, but also on the manufacturing floor, on warehouse forklifts, in public safety vehicles, and in practically every other workplace. In fact, some business and logistical applications will run on relatively inexpensive laptop PCs designed for home and office use. However, these computers may not stand up well in industrial and public safety environments. Another class of computers, called "rugged computers" are designed specifically to meet the requirements of these harsh environments. Submitted by Glacier Computer
