    JUst wanted to make this.
    So here is my story:

    I have a M34 MK7 with Linux Puppy and Windows 98 dual-boot, wireless card, touch, working battery, 30 gb HDD, rubber keyboard, and a lot more. I bought this in 2006 or 07 idk NOS. I then sold it and in 2017 I was perusing though a Goodwill in Calgary Alberta ( Yeah we had Goodwill in Canada) and saw the box. it had some random floppy disks and vhs player. It was labeled as "Collin go through. Has supplies" then on the top "Goodwill pile'' and "Ask Poppy about video-player". I bought it for only 20$ CAD.

    Yeah. Feel free to post or not

    CF-19Mk5 for $65 US. Also in 2016 I bought and sold about 10 NIB CF-51Mk3 that someone found in a warehouse. I paid an average of $150 each and got $400 each for them.

    I should have kept one.:oops:

    Found my first toughbook at a goodwill with a $7.98 price tag on it. The battery was dead and there was no charger so I had no idea if it worked. Bought it and got a $10 charging cable off eBay. Fired right up and worked perfectly. I’m on my 10th thoughbook. I can quit any time. :)
