Stealth PC Ships LPC-100M Rugged Field Desktop

Stealth PC is a fitting name for a company that makes PCs smaller than the average Wii. The company is back again with a familiar design, this time introducing the LPC-100M. This is considered a rugged, small form factor PC that's designed to slide away and withstand the elements. It's also designed to work well with DC powered applications typically found in vehicles and remote applications.


According to Stealth CEO, Ed Boutilier; "One of the unique attributes the LPC-100M mobile computer possesses is a user selectable smart power control interface. Start-up and shut-down times are user definable allowing for safe application launching along with a controlled shutdown period. This is absolutely critical in preventing data corruption when power sources are interrupted in mobile and field environments."

The entire enclosure measures just 4" x 6.1" x 1.45", or about the size of a paperback novel. It uses an Intel Core 2 Duo (2.26GHz) and a multitude of I/O connectivity built directly into its impressively small design such as; Gigabit LAN, 4-USB, 2-Serial, 1-DVI-I, 1-DVI-D Video, Audio In/Out, 2-PS/2 ports and 1-external express card slot. It also supports up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, a 2.5" hard drive and Windows 7 or XP. It's currently shipping with a base price of $1095. No one ever said that a rugged, tiny, field machine would be cheap, now did they?

The machine employs the Intel Mobile GM45 Express Chipset featuring Intel's graphic media accelerator with advanced 3D graphics performance.

The LPC-100M mini PC features a multitude of I/O connectivity built directly into its impressively small design such as; Gigabit LAN, 4-USB, 2-Serial, 1-DVI-I, 1-DVI-D Video, Audio In/Out, 2-PS/2 ports and 1-external express card slot. The rear locking DC power connector ensures power is securely in place. The LPC-100M supports up to 8GB of DDR3 memory and has a built-in 2.5” mobile hard drive with up to 500GB's of storage space for archived data.

I think that they should lose the two PS2 ports and replace them with more USB slots.

Hopefully this rugged little device can weather a drop in price as well as it does a drop to the ground. (I want one for my Tricycle Handlebars)

Thats pretty sweet!

Pretty soon we will actualy have KITT that we can take with us!

When that price becomes half of that then it will be desirable. Until then it will just be another thiing that Meth-Heads will look for in cars!

Yep!! Way too costly for ruggedness. Though KITT is too far yet, coz unless some car manufacturer pumps in cash in the dev. of such a software all this hardware is a waste. There is only some things that can be done by a individual but if a company needs it, it can get it done!!

These are actually used by the Military and companies/organizations that speed a lot of time working in rough/nasty areas. I've used this type of system before (including a few from Stealth) and they work great.

As cool as we find it, they don't really serve individual consumers.
