I thought about going to a CF-52 and CF-53 but I really enjoy the fully rugged line. Not that I ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever (maybe one more ever for measure), ever need the fully rugged durability but I don't live my life to need. I typically live my life to excess. I love every part of the CF-31 (including it's bulk) with the exception of the screen resolution. I have a leather backpack I schlep it around in. Inside I always carry a USB external HD monitor for travel use. I can't imagine working on 1 monitor, especially with this god awful resolution!

If the CF-53 was fully rugged I might have swapped over. They have i7 support now too!

CF-53 is pretty rugged, especially with an SSD, and can be had with the bright CircuLumin touchscreen that works well outdoors.

It is, but it's not IP65. That is pretty important to me o.O

I'm just the opposite,bought a mint CF-29 about 15 months ago,then a 30mk2 and now have about 18 fully rugged 19's, 29's and 30's along with 10 or so 52's and a couple of 74's.
I'm on a 52G right now but just bought an i5 Toshiba to replace it,I find I have no real use for them. I like the 52 and I had a 53S with 300 hours on it, they are nice but just don't suit me. A 52 with an i5 would be nice but costs too much,I'm an old cheapskate cuz I work at home. :boing:

About 1 1/2 years ago I bought a 52MK4 (i5) and it was nice but was not happy with the screen so I bought a 53MK1 (i5) and wow...the screen will blow you away. It is very rugged, I take it every where with me now and use my 30 less and less now.

Alright ....being honest here the 53 is super quick logging on and off checking the mail etc, but I find myself scrunching down due to screen height......it's like a CF-19 and 1/2. Very tough, pretty light and the touchpad and a half is good.

Speaking of the touchpad ...the synaptics touchpad is the reason I use a 52 most of the time. (carpal tunnel bs). (instead of a fully rugged)

Two cents

I gave up on 51 deluxe with UXGA display, at 1600x1200 the print is too small.

Except for Rob and his crew, the rest of us must be old farts.
