The Rambo of LCD monitors

"TuffTouch" is a survivalist's touch screen.

Stealth Computer

A lot of computer gear these days seems to be following the Hummer/SUV trend of the auto industry from the early '90s: the bigger and tougher the better. We've seen, for example, military-grade laptops , keyboards , and even nuke-proof USB drives . So why should LCDs be left out?

Specialty equipment maker Stealth Computer plans to fill that void with the "TuffTouch," a 17-inch touch-screen monitor encased in aluminum alloy for "harsh environment applications," according to the company. The 1,280x1,024 monitor can also be ordered with a built-in "Little PC"--and it's available in custom colors, for all you fashion-conscious survivalists.
