    Hello fellow forumers,

    I've stumbled over some seemingly random datapoints,
    which I believe might turn out to be interesting,
    when connecting the dots in a certain way,
    with a multiple brighly colored textmarkers.

    Panasonic announces Intel SoCs via partnership with Intel fab, shortly before start of it's "prosumer tablet" migration
    https://newsroom.intel.com/news-rel...on-chips-using-intels-14nm-low-power-process/

    SemiAccurate published a hit piece on Intel today, which the author believes to be his biggest story ever, mentioning that Intels manufactoring problems will be really really hard on a big old 20+ billion tech giant.
    https://www.semiaccurate.com/2018/0...down-is-crushing-a-20b-market-cap-tech-giant/

    Todays closing price of PCFRY was 13.37 USD (1337="leet", a hidden message from THEM)
    https://www.bloomberg.com/quote/PCRFY:US

    When you use blue, orange and black textmarkers, you might become to be open to a possible conclusion, that Panasonic cannot produce new toughbook tablets due to lack of Intel SoCs and thus will produce real tank laptops once again.

    yippe yay yay, finally a possibility for a viable upgrade path of my cf19s
    (don't you dare crushing my dream with like news, reality, information or such nasty things)

    Okay.... Expect to pay an additional $1,250+ based upon the new tariffs they will be enacting.

    Just saying...

    I have not turned on my CF19 since I got the FZ G1 and the Ikey keyboard dock.

    The screen and touch is so much better on the G1.
    The touchpad on the ikey dock is a bit dificult at times though.
    I would not want the G1 without the keyboard dock though.

    Hate to rain on your parade Karl, but look at the date of that Intel article.

    That said, clamshell > CF-20/33

    Hi User32,

    what happened to your avatar ... it looks so blueish?

    About that raining thing:
    No problemo, dancing in the rain while keeping an eye out for wet tshirts =)


    The fab announcement was 2014, shortly before cf20/3x tablet announce.
    The other one was from this week.
    So ... uhm ... what am I missing here?

    I uploaded a .gif of a Mew sleeping, but it got stuck on the first frame.

    That said, i'm all for Panasonic to create a 31 Mk6 or CF-32.

    Lol, I was right on the 31 Mk6: http://ruggedpcreview.com/3_notebooks_panasonic_31_mk6.html

    Now without PC Card/ExpressCard slots, rubber keyboard, DVD drive, FPR and FireWire. In return you'll get Kaby Lake though.

    *secretly hopes for a CF-19 Mk9 or 31 Mk7 with Kaby Lake-R*

    Actually, make that Coffee Lake-R or whatever Intel has in the pipeline by then.
