    And I plan on doing just that with my soon to arrive CF-51, she'll also get more storage, more RAM, and a fresh Linux distro installed "My pappy said son you're going drive me to drinking if you don't stop driving that Hot Rod ToughBook" SpazzBox her nickname.

    I think I upgraded 8 with the T7200 2.0 mhz and 1 with the T7600 but I found the fan was running all the time so I stuck with the T7200.

    I agree with you from reading the thread, a T 7200 makes sense and gives the impression of speed and stability.
