    I believe most people would ask the "What now?" question.

    Dno what you're trying to tell us.

    The H1 is Ebay forwarding you to a current auction. Should be a link to the original item near the top.

    M34's are nice little units. I had XP on mine and I was (or maybe still am) running Win7 superlite custom build.
    I took out the dial up modem card and installed an Intel 2915 WIFI card and antenna.
    Keyboard has a better layout than a CF 19. HDD is IDE. I have an adapter and a SATA SSD in mine.

    I have a thread here somewhere.

    Sheepman has a couple that I think he runs Linux on.

    What does the backlit keyboard, WWAN and GPS look like? I found a spec sheet for the Mk7 too.

    Suggestions for CF-M34 Mk7:
    1 GB DDR PC-2700
    mSATA SSD in PATA adapter
    EnGenius EMP-8602 Plus-S a/g WiFi

    The first 2 should allow you to run Windows 7, although a bit slowly, or original XP quickly. You can get the touchscreen and audio working under Win7, but the original XP with Panasonic drivers has some nice features and can even be paired with the CF-07 wireless display. Suggest a USB dongle style GPS for portability, or puck style if mounted in a car or boat. I believe the battery pack can be rebuilt by carefully splitting the case and replacing the cells (with Panasonic cells of course).

    mSATA and RAM upgrade is definitely something I was planning on doing. It's shipped btw, will probably come in the mail next year or so.
