    I can confirm. Also #3 is a nice deal but I think that 1 is better

    Ebay will be the lowest price but you might be buying a problem unit. Bobjohnson has good units they stand behind. Dont get a spray painted unit, if you want black get one that is powdercoated. There is a company that advertises on Bing shopping ;)

    CF-30 is going to be pretty sluggish. I bought 2 for $20 each in March.

    Lol number 3 is mine. They are untested. We don't have a power adapter to test with. We have not had any complaints so I guess they work. Its a old machine though!

    Auction #1 gives you no info on what it is beside he is the only owner and it's a CF-30 ?? Is it a MK1, 2 or 3 , memory?? HDD size?? I would need more info before I buy. Auction #4 "Bob's" is a good seller and a member on here but what comes standard with it...memory and HDD size ?? First you need to figure out how much you want to spend and the specs you want...HDD and max memory. If it's a CF-30 go with a MK3 , it is faster. CF-31 is a little more money but a lot faster and newer. So many choices....have fun

    I nice one would be play it safe and get a CF-52 or 53 there not bad but CF-30s are nicer starter units. And can be upgraded easy but for the starter toughbook person the caddy. The caddy is tricky to dissemble but not bad after a while. I have 2 dogs and they like to hit the Lifetime table I use to dissemble things. So it’s hard there for me

    The listing is good and I might buy it and repair it then sell it as a thing. I’ll keep y’all posted on that and when it’s for sale I’ll post on the toughbook marketplace here and eBay.

    More info is needed.

    What are you going to use the laptop for?
    What environment?
    What OS and software is needed?
