Man do I hate waiting for new toys to arrive!
Anyways, here's the pics! http://imgur.com/a/Gp9In

CF-19VMRFX2M
By the looks of it, I was the first to open'er up since the factory!

Tested using the BIOS hardware test and all passes, also booted into a live USB I have of Linux Mint 17.3, so far everything works.
Need to install the intel 6200 I got once I find some screws that fit.

On the planner starting next payday:
OEM good or new battery, Screw 3rd party! (amsahr brand battery on the way back to amazon now.)
HDD and caddy.
WWAN and BT. Plus WLAN jumper.
X-Strap.
Stylus tether.

I'm sure once I start getting it up and running I'll find more stuff I want to do or buy for it.

Enjoy it! :clapping:

It is a lot of fun getting them how you like. I have limited funds, unlike most of the millionaires that congress here... which is one reason I have one nice Toughbook, and it has two OS's, so I get to do everything twice. :D

WhooHooo! Found some screws and installed the Advanced-N 6200 and it works! In fact I'm posting this from the CF-19 via the Linux Mint live USB! Now to see if my old WWAN card works to, otherwise I'll just have to find a gobi.
