    Without handle
    I like the stand but don't really care for the handle.

    @Rob
    Can you get the recovery DVD for a mk1? Win7 64bit.
    Panasonic does not list a driver bundle on the Japan site.
    The D1 has 50 count em 50 drivers.

    D1 is scheduled to arrive today.
    First things to do.
    Install SSD
    Try Deepin Linux on SSD.(It is already on the SSD.)

    Try CF 31 Bluetooth board in D1. I know where the BT connector is.
    Maybe an early CF 19 Bluetooth will work.

    Try to find a gps board that will work. I don't know where the gps connector is yet. Going to try a CF 19 gps because I have 6 of them.

    Probably remove the very large top handle but keep the stand.

    What I would really like to know once you get the D1 up and running which tablet do you like the best G1 or D1.

    Briefly tried Deepin on SSD
    Works ok. Tablet buttons do nothing in Linux.
    Touchscreen must be set to touchscreen in BIOS not tablet or auto.
    Touchscreen would need calibrated.

    Intel 7260 card works fine.

    CF 31 mk1/2 Bluetooth does NOT work.

    Did not bother with gps--Realized I don't care enough to fight with it. Bluetooth failure discouraged me.

    It is a custom BIOS-don't know what all the difference is. I do not recall seeing the settings in the BIOS to assign the front buttons to user choices.
    It appears that some of the front buttons have custom icons on them and not the stock icons.
    Screen rotation button works and on screen keyboard button works. Also the key button to lock windows works (cntrl alt del). One button blacks out the screen (I have no clue what it is doing in the background.)
    I have not figured how to (or if I can) scroll the menu choices in a grub boot menu or a windows "did not shut down properly" menu on the D1. Could not even get anything to work as an enter key.

    D1 vs G1- Tough call. My G1 has the Ikey keyboard which is very nice to use. Probably just a learning curve to get used to no keyboard on D1. I manage fine on my phone so the D1 should not be an issue.
    D1 has awesome stand built in.
    D1 has bigger screen which is MUCH nicer on the eyes and for touch use.
    G1 is dual touch and supports multi touch and swipes for scrolling etc.
    D1 uses 2.5 HDD, In a shockproof caddy.
    G1 uses MSATA. Easy to swap.
    D1 has 3 usb ports.
    D1 has replaceable ram sticks
    D1 has SD card reader
    G1 is lighter, but when you add Ikey keyboard the difference is only 1 pound.

    I feel the button issues would not be there with a standard D1 and not the customer specific model I have.

    I say the D1 wins, but not by a landslide.
    Overall, I feel the D1 will be easier to use. Easier to see and touch operate, Easier to read SD cards from my camera, Easier to connect usb devices.

    standard batteries in both seem to be comparable runtime.
    Roughly 4hrs real use. I was doing a lot of file transfers from usb sticks on the D1 during the unofficial battery test.

    approx the same screen size. d1 is much heavier.
    q1 is faster. my q1 has cameras and my d1 does not.
    d1 is fully rugged and q1 is business rugged at best.
    q1 has better resolution and an over all better screen.
    D1 has several usb ports while q1 has 1 iirc.
    d1 has removable battery and hdd caddy and q1 does not.
    q1 and d1 both look more stylish than g1. g1 is more industrial looking.
    the d1 is more ergonomic and useable for me.
    That is once I adjust to only using the onscreen keyboard.

    g1 and q1 both have keyboard docks available.
    the d1 does not have a keyboard dock available.

    Here is a problem with the D1.

    Windows bluescreened on me.

    Reboot but no button combo will let you scroll choices or work as enter key.
    I did not do this install so who knows what is up with it blue screening.

    The G1 will let up scroll and use a panel button for enter key.
