    Yeah I still have my first toughbook which was a CF-18 MK2 with Windows 2000 downgrade which we needed at that time to run software that didn't run on XP. That laptop got all beat up from field work but it still boots up and runs good old Windows 2000 without a hitch.

    Although I admire the Toughbooks for their mechanical endurance, I sold my really, really nice CF-29 to SaddleMaker (I think) ages (In computer life, a couple of years) ago. I wish I could afford to keep really nice Toughbooks as collectibles!!

    Maybe someday!!!

    I use a CF-19 at work and its pretty much been in use 24/7 for over 7.5 years now. It's still going strong minus ripped off port covers and a cracked case.

    I still got a CF-25 Mk2 I have been still working on, on and off. I had to buy a Mk3 just to get a good cd/floppy door. I have a dock for it, cd drive, floppy drive and a few other accessories. Big things I have been wanting to do with it is rebuild the battery and maybe upgrade to the Mk3 motherboard. (The Mk2 looks new, the Mk3 well it looked it's age before I took what I wanted and scrapped the rest.) It currently has a 4gb compact flash for a SSD drive for it. The ram is maxed out. Been meaning to put DSL on it but keep getting side tracked.

    Other old ones I have are 07, 17, M34 Mk2, 28 Mk2-3, 29 Mk3 and CF-41(was hoping it worked as it had a national guard logo on the lid. Sadly the battery was leaking and I think that killed the insides)
