Shawn , that mk2 looks clean. What I need I think is a Mk2 with a DVD. No need for GPS,Wwan. I appreciate the recovery DVDs. I'm not into watered software. I'd prefer less than 10k in hours, but take your word as to 30k not being too many for a CF-31. I've never even owned a PC. Been Mac since 84. But I now need a pc with a serial port, and the Toughbook seems like a well made laptop.
Fair enough, perhaps the tone of your reply got somewhat misunderstood in a typed message. You can't get true emotions in a text only message.
A DVD can be added to that unit easily. I can remove gps and add DVD. Even swap. We can move more details into a PM if you are interested. I do have the AC adapter situation covered also.
