    This is something we all need when looking at used toughbooks or toughpads since only privileged people (!) can access config tables ... :cool:

    To start off can someone please decode this cf31 model code and give some advice if it's a good config or one that should be passed by...

    Code is CF-31SF7031M

    Thanks!

    Craig.

    Check the bios version and make sure it's not an M20 at the end? I think that's the weird bios. A lot of them have features missing and coded into that bios.

    I think Ohlip is still doing customised CF31's. If it's possible to find a really nice Mk5 that's probably what I'd aim for. Only mk5's in Oz for sale are brand new ones with prices up around A$6k+

    How about CF-31WBG15LM? It's apparently a 2.7 GHz Mk4 system.

    Regarding the BIOS version, where do I need to look on the BIOS screen view to see the important numbers?

    Regarding SSD's for CF-31's are there any really good ones that are preferred? I see they are fairly common up to 1 TB capacity now.

    When you look at the bios it will be V6-00L10M20 as an example, that bios is a CF19Mk5.

    Crucial,Samsung or Corsair, they tend to be the fastest SSD's. Intel,Sandisk are slow for ssd's , Kingston's are also good, just not as quick as the first 2 but cheaper. Just my 2 cents.:D

    I tend to stick with the Samsung SSDs... Though I have also tried Kingston HyperX and one Intel.
