    Default Toughbook 29 MK4 MK5 Whats the difference?

    Ok so it seems that the fastest CPU the 29 comes with is 1.6GHZ and this is on a MK4 so what differentiates the MK4 from a MK5? does anybody have a MK5? and do you know what it has that the MK4 doesnt have? Inquiring minds want to know.

    TPM 1.2 for MK5 and the MK4 has none.

    Thats all? I wouldn't think that would be enough to change the MK level since i have a MK3 with TPM and one without and they are both still a MK3.

    WWAN Rev A and HSDPA is only officially supported on the MK5. That is, the modules are interchangable between the CF-30 and CF-29 mk5.

    Some (well, me.) are still awaiting someone with a Rev A or HSDPA CF-30 module to be able to put it in a CF-29 mk4 and below to see if it works/recognized. Electrically there's a USB2.0 in the ribbon cable, but perhaps the BIOS doesn't recognize it?

    Its the same with the MK4 and MK5 CF-18. The only apparent difference is the TPM.
