Waterproof laptop could make a splash

April 27, 2006 5:02 PM PDT

You'll be able to spill water on a new laptop from Matsushita Electric without having to fret about ruining your computer.

The company's Let's Note CF-Y5, due to hit stores in Japan on May 19, features a waterproof sheet and special drainage system that protects the hard drive and circuit board from light water damage, according to the Associated Press. That's light water damage, mind you--as in a spilled glass of water, not a dousing by the garden hose.

The CF-Y5 can withstand a force equivalent to a maximum of 220 pounds, offering extra protection in packed commuter trains, the Osaka, Japan-based electronics maker said.

The product will cost around $2,300.
