Should I go for it? I saw that the 31's are going super cheap lately on eBay.

A 31 is very different from a 19.
I prefer a 31. They are a lot larger and heavier.
Does your 19 have dual touch with the digitizer? 31 is touch only. Big difference.

Myself I like the 19 . Nice and light and easy to take anywhere and it also fits perfectly in my truck.

Touch only and tbh I'm not missing DT at all because I mostly use the touchpad.

What about portability? I like the 19's form factor but passive cooling a shit in my case. (I do games on my 19 and sometimes it throttles)

That's the reason i'm leaning on a 31: active cooling and a optional dGPU.

The ATI GPU is only on certain models.
It is not something you can add on.

The ATI models demand a premium price.

And there are no Mk3 models on eBay currently, which is a shame.

Think I might sell my 19 after the vacation ends and then consider buying a 31 Mk3 plus a ViDock.
