    I have a CF-20 and it is pretty neat, the compact size and decent keyboard makes it great to carry around, its a bit on the heavy side with both batteries though.

    Hey Towelie, how does the 20 compare to an FZG1, IYO?

    I currently have both of them in the Mk1 variant, the G1 was used and bought the 20 new.
    Having a lot of issues with the screen on the G1, it seems like as it gets warmer with usage the screen starts shutting off but comes back when "waking up the digitizer", after a while it stops shutting off but the digitizer stops working(the pen still works fine).
    Also the rubber surrounding the screen is starting to come off(starting from the center of each side, but i might glue it to fix it).
    For the 20, it is definitely an improvement design wise as it seems not much would fall apart over time.
    But as the design is more compact/thinner, i am not as confident about it's ruggedness(the screen is also a little more vulnerable than the g1).
    Repairing the screen will be difficult on both but i have a feeling the CF-20 will be harder to do(from my experience tearing both of them down).
    I do have a keyboard for both and the 20 keyboard is very enjoyable to use(i did not use a 19 in a while so can't really say if it is better), the touchpad is similar to other rugged toughbooks.
    With a keyboard battery and rotating strap it weights 1.953kg, 1kg with rotating strap but without keyboard and the g1 is 1.25kg with thin battery and rotating strap.
