    It's not an SBC Mk3 CF-29: it does not have the WWAN antenna of the SBC units.

    You guys wrong! There is a factory CF-29 black Lid color even CF-30. As a matter of fact I handed two of those a year ago. Its one of a federal issue unit. Here is the actual photo of the unit. One on the right is the CF-30. Finished on matt black paint. Its durable like the silver coat.

    Cool find ohlip, still would have thought they would have painted the screen face black as well, seems half assed when its coming from the manufacturer.

    Thanks Ohlip. I may have to look into this a little more. I am pretty sure that the laptop that I am looking at is from the federal government. Maybe it is a "stealth" model?? :)

    Well it would have been stealthy for sure, but kind of hard to read...

    Hello. In addition to Ohlip's CF-29 and CF-30 in factory black, Panasonic also made CF-28 in black. I happend to have one. It's MK III, 1GHz processor. Full
    model number is: CF-28S3JGZDM. It has matt black lid and black handle, but the screen frame is silver, just like the one on Ohlip's CF-29. I did change screen on this machine to a touch one, and keyboard to an emmisive one.
    This machine has 256 MB of RAM on board, I'm looking for 512 MB chip for it.
    So, not only CF-27's were black. Regards, Voytek.

    Yup... I too have had several factory black CF-28s and CF-29s. They are a rare bird though. Personally... If I was going to be using it outside at all... I'd steer clear of it and go with regular silver finish. The black color is just a heat magnet... Not your Toughbooks friend!
