Sealed panel PC survives being dunked

“Arbor announced a panel PC suitable for use in marine or
industrial applications. The P1585 includes a 1.6GHz Intel Atom
processor, a 15-inch touchscreen, hard disk or solid state disk
(SSD) storage, waterproof I/O ports, and an IP67-compliant,
stainless-steel case, the company says.

“Arbor’s P1585 is superficially similar to many other panel PCs
that, like it, have employed the evergreen Intel Atom N270
processor (along with the 945GSE and ICH7M). But, while most
feature only waterproof front bezels (if that), Arbor’s device has
a stainless-steel casing all around.

“The fanless, sealed P1585 is claimed to meet the stringent IP67
standard, meaning that it could even survive complete immersion for
up to 30 minutes. To achieve this, the device employs waterproof
I/O connectors (below right), including a special 10-pin connector
that relays two of its USB ports (there’s also a standard Type 3
connector for a third), and an eight-pin connector for serial ports
