Shuttle just announced their new Car PC—or what looks to be a Mac Mini genetically enhanced with car audio badassness (known to some as a heat sink).
Internally, the Car PC will run an Intel Core Duo chipset (not the 2 Duo, apparently) and store information on a standard laptop hard drive. 7.1 sound and graphics are predictably integrated onboard.
But what's so appealing about the Car PC is that it's powered by your car battery and will automatically shut down with no lost data when you turn off the ignition. So that quarterly budget you finished on the way to work will stay safe even after you park your car outside the hospital.
