Stealth Computers waterproof IP67 and NMEA6 rated computer

I posted a story about tough Dell Latitude XFR as near-ideal yachd computing resource. There are also other possible computer systems, not only notebooks, but surprisingly also desktops.. For U$ 2000 its possible to buy 100% waterproof IP67 and NMEA 6 rated passive computer from Stealth Computers. It’s  based on energy-saving Atom 330 dual-core processor. Waterproof means, that all power cords and peripheral wires are sealed. Passive means, that there is no fans, outer panels of computer are used for cooling. Atom processor and passive design keeps power requirements at low level, about 20 Watts (figure is my speculation, no actual data available).

Computer is equipped with 1,5M wires for peripherals, like water-proof LCD touch-screen and USB. Device uses also SSD (solid state drives) making it not only water- and dustproof, but also shock-proof. Input voltage can vary in wide range, accepting as low as 10 VDC, making this computer truly yacht compatible.

Technical data:

Intel Atom 330 CPU 1,6 GHz

2 GB RAM standard (more than enouhg for sailing applications)

80 HB extreme environment HDD (stands 300G), SSD optional

Intel GMA 950 graphics (resolution up to 2048 x 1056 pixels)

Input voltage range 10 – 30 VDC

    I crossed Atlantic ocean in small (28ft) sailboat twice. using Toshiba satellite as my main navigational computer. It’s not waterproof. I was dripping salt water all over.. so keyboard didn’t worked. but everything else was OK. it’s unbelievable.
    now my next pc is Qosmio.
    I took sattelite for parts (it was still working though) but as PIV it was too slow and too power hungry.

  14. You must offer responses to the data being inquired like mail address, complete name along with your desired policy type.
    The policy offers financial assistance to repair your car and get it
    back on track. You may basically request for insurance plan quotes from companies and even obtain
    a prepared list of estimates.

  15. This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  16. I believe what you posted was very reasonable.
    However, consider this, suppose you were to write a killer title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean Waterproof passive computer on-board | Sailing Gadgets is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news headlines to grab people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers interested
    about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.

  17. I every time emailed this weblog post page to all
    my contacts, as if like to read it next my friends will too.

  18. Your style is very unique in comparison to other folks I’ve read stuff from.
    Many thanks for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I
    will just book mark this blog.

  19. I know this web site gives quality depending posts and extra stuff, is there any other site
    which presents these kinds of stuff in quality?
