    He's going to be a father. He's doing great. he's also gonna get a Mark 4, i5 CF-19 from his work.

    Just thought I'd let you know that another great guy is doing good! :)

    Thanks

    Yay I am alive lol.

    True true I am going to be a father. Its gonna be a whole new experience :)

    I got my mk4 cf-19 today and I gotta say th LED duo touch is so damn awesome.

    Also got a Havis docking station which is also really cool. I have played with it a little bit and so far its great. I swapped in the hard drive from my cf-19 mk1 and i was very surprised that it booted and worked without a hitch. A few drivers auto installed and almost everything was working. I am running win 7 on my mk1 with mk4 drivers for most things so I guess that helps :)

    I am trying to figure out why the mk4 docking connector is different from the mk1-mk3.

    My dock says to use only MK4 and i am scared to put my mk1 on there and see what happens.

    No wwan on the mk4. We use a mobile base station modem the mbs-1000 in the truck which is wwan, wlan and gps in one unit. The setup is all done over a private hidden inf wlan and it carries over the wwan and gps to the laptop. The antennas on the roof of the truck are much stronger than anything the toughbook could have.

    You know guys (and gals), i just realized. our priorities are seriously messed up. here he is with probably the best news a man can get, and we go all crazy about his new toughbook. we can at least say congrats before unleashing the toughbook-geek in ourselves, cant we?

    So, congrats, mate.

    Now that that's settled. What the hell is up with the cpu in that thing? i5-540 at 1.2ghz? My i5-520 runs at 2.4ghz... i know is supposed to be cool and quiet an all that. but at they could've at least gotten 1.8 maybe 2 out of it...

    yeah, thats a given. but why? the cf-19 isnt that small. you have plenty of room for decent cooling. sure its got a 10.4 (?) inch screen so it not massive, but i think its big enough.

    judging from the clock on your CF-31, its a 540m in that as well. and although there is a clear difference in size, i dont believe it warrants such a drastic underclocking.
