Summary: I love my Toughbook! This computer is TOUGH and FAST. Boots up quickly, which I like. 5.5 hr battery life. Obviously the whole "used," "refurbished," and "partial" game is a lottery, but I paid $160 for this puppy and I am so pleased. Definitely worth a shot! The keyboard takes a little getting used to, but I have no real problem with it. Great field computer! Only downside: the touchscreen doesn't seem to work. I guess it was refurbed with a non-touch screen.

Summary: It's like driving an old car...An Armored Vehicle, that is! Provided it has been "professionally refurbished" by someone who knows and cares about what he is doing, this is a bargain for the person who needs to take his work with him even if it's on the floor of his SUV while driving off-road in very rough terrain. The CF-29 was built to take punishment and so far, it has lived up to it's reputation.

Summary: The unit arrived as expected without a hard drive or power supply. It was very clean and had very little wear to speak of. I aqquired a power supply and charged the battery which did hold a charge "BONUS". The following week I installed a hard drive and caddy and loaded it with the proper windows XP software that i owned. The whole package worked like a charm.
Summary: Great computer for what i use it for. The battery was bad but a replacment was sent right away. The comp came with a 1gb ram already in it....but it seemed a little rough. After replacing it with a A-Tech 1GB ram it picked up and havnt had any issues. Over all computer is great.
Summary: This is my second re-furbished toughbook, I had my first one for about 5yrs on the road as a truck driver, alot of vibration and pounding, looking forward to having this one last at least as long, note, I was surprised to find it dod not come with a ROM-drive or Windows software, I just took the ROM-drive out of my old one, no problem(I am NOT a computer tech).
