    The spec sheet for the computer says DDR3 but the spec for the processor says DDR3L. I will be exchanging it next week.

    Thanks for the info!

    The new memory worked great, everything is up and running fine. I am letting Win 10 do its own thing and so far none of the nightmares I've read about. I have 1 driver missing for the wireless switch (ACPI/MAT0028). Its not readily available on the Panasonic site and I'm hesitant to use any 3rd party sites for the driver so I'll wait it out.

    Someone put SSD’s on sale and I bought a 1TB Samsung for ~$100 and swapped out the hard disk. The drive came with cloning software so it was a painless transition. I put Win 7 64 on the other partition. Not because Win 10 was misbehaving but because I could not get it to talk to my printer/scanner all in one. I also had issue with Win 10 not supporting some programs and crashing. Anyway, it dual boots and has more space than I’ll need anytime soon. Then there is the addition of the backlit keyboard....

    My only complaint on the CF-53 is the way the LCD is mounted, its taped to the bezel and that's all that holds it. Do not get water anywhere near the LCD,a drop of water will wick up between the layers and ruin it.....ask me how I know.:mad::D

    Crashing...yep I know what you mean. That is why I am back on W7. It seamed every W10 update would break something and I would spend hours fixing it.

    That's was the first thing I did then I upgraded the memory to 16GB and 240GB SSD

    Well I won't have to worry about that. Mine stays in the dock under my big screen TV. So cool surfing the net with a 55" screen.
