Rugged PCs for DT workshop
We are planning to install some PCs in our DT workshop. These will be used for CAD work and so will need to be high spec, including a decent graphics card.
Does anyone have any recommendations for rugged PCs that are suitable for harsh environments? Dust in particular is a potential problem.
I have seen solutions that are fully ruggedized, and also enclosures that protect standard PCs.
Any advice appreciated!

I'll drop you a PM with options.

I have a couple of Tranquil PC machines at home (note that their website is rather crusty and out-of-date, but they do make well-engineered machines):

They resell Streacom cases, which are like the Tranquil PC cases but come in a wider variety of sizes and types. You could put your own system together or they do pre-built systems, too.
