Q-PC launches ruggedized invehicle computer

MADISON, Ala. (Jan. 5, 2000) Ð A computer manufacturer will launch the first ruggedized Microsoft Windows-based personal computer designed to be used in passenger cars and trucks this week.

Q-PC Real Car Computing said it will introduce its Q-PC Real Car Computer at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Thursday. The PC is targeted at mobile business professionals who need the capability of a full computer in their vehicle.

Most manufacturers of in-cab computers have focused on building less sophisticated, dash-mounted PCs running the Windows CE operating system.
