New NEC ShieldPRO rugged laptop

NEC has announced an addition to their ShieldPRO line of rugged laptops.

The ShieldPRO FC-N22A features a 1.06Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo U7500 processor, a 12.1″ screen, integrated GPS, SD card slot, windows XP professional, and (they claim) a 12 hour battery life.

It passed all the standard ruggedness tests such as being dropped 3 feet onto concrete, preventing dust and water from getting inside, and operating in a wide range of temperatures (14 to 122 Fahrenheit).
