A computer dealer friend has been offered some second hand Panasonic
Toughbook CF-28 laptops for sale, I'm quite keen to get one, but am
looking for others to make up the minimum order of 5.
The specs are:
Panasonic Toughbook CF-28
Mobile Pentium 3 Processor
384Mb RAM
12.1" Transflective touch screen (will work in sunlight)
20Gb hard disk
Windows 2000 Pro installed with all drivers (you would need to upgrade
it to WinXP if required).
UK Keyboard
Main adaptor.
Working battery
Serial/Parallel/USB/PCMCIA/PS2/build in network card/built in
modem/sound ports
30 days warranty
Considered to be in good condition, but will have some marks.
Photos available on request.
These are fully ruggedised (to Military spec) laptops designed to
survive in the harshest conditions and are the ideal base for running
navigation software like Memory Map, Touratech QV or Ozi Explorer.
If we can get the minimum order together the price would be about ?360
+ VAT + delivery (unless you can collect from me here).
These are usually available on ebay, but the prices tend to start at
?595.
So, anyone interested - I just need to find another 4 buyers ;-)

Hi all,
The price seems about right. To store digital pictures the disk will
require upgrading.
Would you believe they are still flogging these machines (brand new)
for =A33,4000 inc VAT!!!!

Hi Roman,
I was going to get a bigger, USB/Disk based backup device for the
photos and just plug in when required.
It is a god price, just need to find 4 other takers (in the next few
days!).

Julian,
What I had last time was this:
* Disk 1 - 60Gb hard disk fitted in the PC and containing OS,
navigation software and picture backups
* Disk 2 - 60GB hard disk stored in a Peli case and containing a
mirror image of Disk1 (for SNAFU mements)
* Imax SD card reader with 60Gb hard disk for daily picture downloads

Top machines, I use one for work, very tough and quite light on the
batteries. Limited USB ports and on mine at least no built in network, I
use a pcmcia card.
Other than the ruggedness, the main reason I got one was the serial port,
usb adaptors don't always work. Touch screen is useful, touch pad is a
little fiddly, I often plug a mouse in.

Hi Gareth,
I'm going to have to let the offer pass - I still need to find 2 other buyers and am running out of time so am looking at alternatives.

I overlooked the original post, what was the price again? Is the
machine powerful enough to run Memory Map software?
Thanks,

Chances are they may not have CD-ROMs, but you can pick up USB ones via
PCWorld or EBay for not much money.

Bought one of these on ebay as a one off, nice spec, spare battery, only
256MB RAM (as the work one I use has 256 and is OK thought that would do),
built in wifi. Strange thing is although the model number is the same CF-28
the screen is slightly smaller and one 800*600 not 1024*7whatever.
Another thing to watch out for is some CF-28's don't seem to be touch
screen? Both mine are both in case anyone is looking for one something to
note.
