    @Shawn
    1 Ill use this for web browsing
    2 I live at the beach right on the oceanfront so I need something to take outside without damaging it
    3 Windows 7 and up. Adobe reader, Virtual Box, Dos Box
    Hard drive space would be around 120gb or more and ram 4gb and up.
    If I get a 28 that needs repair I could have 512mb ram, 20gb hard drive
    I’ve been considering a 52 but I’ll keep you posted on that

    A CF 52 will not be bright enough for outdoor use.

    Does screen size matter to you?

    That narrows it down a lot. You are going to be in the $500 and above range for an outdoor Toughbook/Toughpad with 720p

    If you want 720p or better these are out for sure
    CF18
    CF19
    CF28
    CF29
    CF30
    CF31
    Low end CF52's--No CF 52 is bright enough for outdoors anyway.
    -------------------
    CF D1 has the 720p but not bright enough for outdoor use and NO keyboard as it is a tablet.
    FZ Q1 is not bright enough for outdoor use and NO keyboard as it is a tablet.
    CF53 will work. (I don't like them-too many failed display issues) Business rugged class

    CF54 will work.
    CF20 will work.
    CF33 will work.

    FZ G1 will work, but NO keyboard. Need to spend the money for an iKey keyboard dock.

    Little high priced for me. I know it's got the keyboard with it which is a good bonus but still high I think. I am cheap :D

    You will want a rubber keyboard if your concerned about the sand.

    Ok. The CF-28 that @ToughbookGeek96 used there had the rubbery chiclet keys. I just got a 30 MK2 4gb ram 250gb ssd (upgraded) GPS, Wireless internet, all covers are on, But it has vista :mad: and I’ll deal with it for now until I get a 7 Pro install with the drivers
    It has the rubbery one from the 29
