An old computer can be New Again

Benmoshe ""Freedom is the sure possession..., Amazon
5 December 2013
  • 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.

Its a bulletproof laptop for kids, cheap to own and impossible to break

  • 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.

Oldie but a Goodie

  • Summary: This (almost vintage) Toughbook still packs a punch. The only drawback is that there is no CD-ROM in it.

  • 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).

Great buy!

Someone, Amazon
4 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought a refurbished CF-29. It worked about 2 years with no major problems. The W key fell off, which just slows down typing a little. Finally it had power issues and is dead. It's darn slow compared to "modern" computers, and the CD drive never worked very well. It was tough--I used it outside and even in the rain once. UPDATE: I thought it died, turns out it was just a bad power cord. Back up and runnin' like a champ. Still slower than new models and way less memory.

Great Rugged Computer for the Money! :-)

D. Berg, Amazon
18 October 2011
  • Summary: I purchased a pre-owened CF-29 Toughbook and have been very satisfied. I use it extensively in a variety of outdoor environments (heat above 100F, rain, snow, dust, humidity), and have been very satisfied with the overal results. This isn't the fastest computer in the world, but when running my field applications, I typically only have one or two programs up at most. I am running Windows XP Professional, have Office installed, as well as a few specialty programs.

Panasonic Toughbook cf-29

John Gupton, Amazon
14 December 2010
  • Summary: This product is excellet for those who need the utility of a computer and the durability of a bomb shelter. It can take a licking and keep on kicking. The hardware composition is very underpowered in accordance to todays computing standards but it handles a work load very well. Not good for someone looking for strong graphics performance but excellent for the day to day working may, contractor, tech oriented farmer, or emergency response personell.

If only the touchscreen continued to work

Overstock
3 May 2010
  • Summary: The toughbook is just that, well put together and solid. The touchscreen is the only weak point I have found on it. This is the third toughbook I have ordered here. The first two I returned, 1 wasn't a touchscreen model, although I had ordered a touchscreen model. The 2nd, you couldn't get the touchscreen to calibrate, Toughbook tech support said that a part needed replaced. That one I also returned for my money back without any issues from overstock customer support.

Panasonic CF-29Toughbook

Overstock
15 April 2010
  • Summary: I am impressed, this refurbished PC looks like it has a new Key Board and Display. The bottom of the case is a little beat up, but that does not bother me. All of the functions work. The only issues that I have are that the Battery does not last longer than 20 minutes when the PC is in use. I do not know if this is normal but the batttery is rated for 3.5 hours (is this rating for inactive use?) and I can not read the Screen with the sun shining on it.
