Hello.

Currently I own a CF-31 with ~1000cd/m 4:3 display with 1024x768 resolution.

In order to use larger hard disks (currently 5TB) a special partitioning under Windows is necessary.

To use USB3, a plug-in card is necessary.

The display of web pages on the 1024x768 display is not nice.

And under Windows 10, the operation is slow.
Despite a few open browser windows and 8GB RAM.


It is a "MK1" with I5 of the first generation.

I'm not looking for an expensive new notebook.
I have a reasonably fast desktop PC for surfing at home, for VR games etc.
I'm just looking for something for backup photos and videos from the camera, maybe go to a website (but that's not crucial) etc ..
But maybe even a Kinect One for Windows.
* 64-bit
* Physical dual-core 3.1 GHz (2 logical cores per physical system) or faster
* USB 3.0 (*)
* 4 GB of RAM
* Graphics card that supports DirectX 11

*) What USB3 controller is included in the Toughbooks with USB3?


Thanks,
Tobias Claren

Wait a few more months and get yourself a CF-31 Mk5.

All Ivy Bridge and up equipped Toughbooks have USB3 from the Intlel chipset.

Why only in a few months?
Is this a new release?
I want to pay a maximum of $ 400, rather less.

So you are saying you only want to pay $400.00 for this Toughbook ? If so you are not going to find one. You are asking for an awful lot for just $400.00

No :-). "this"?
From the outset, I was just asking for a used full ruggedized notebook, and I had absolutely ruled out new models.
$400 is not unrealistic for a used Toughbook, or? Less for my MK1. Now you say "MK5", but is this the first Toughbook (or other full ruggedized alternative) with USB3?
MK2, MK3, MK4?

I do not need any computing power. I do not want to spend 4000, 5000... dollars.
I have a fast desktop PC.
I just want a sturdy waterproof device (also a tablet toughbook) that picks up a large hard drive (currently in the MK1 a 5TB plate) to empty full large memory cards, and a Kinect 2 to use...
For the Kinect enough USB3 and "Physical dual -core 3.1 GHz (2 logical cores per physical system) or faster ".
Yes, that's not very accurate. A benchmark number would be better.

From what I have read so far there is a CF 31 MK2 i7 that was a high-end Toughbook which was special ordered by customers. You cannot add USB 3 to a i3, i5 or a i7. The USB 3 controller chip is built on to the motherboard. That is why it was special ordered and can only be done at the factory. If you can actually find one it's going to cost a lot more than $400.
