Toughbook Techies,

The Panny specs says that the max RAM in a CF-20 is 16gb. Mine is coming with the standard 8gb installed. Is the RAM upgrade, to 16gb, in this rig something that can be done easily? If so, what is involved and how difficult is it? I have transplanted lids, keyboards, after market internal GPSs, other components, to list a few, on various 19s, 29s, 30s, and 31s, so it's not my first rodeo on taking these awesome rigs apart LOL. Just have no experience on the new CF-20s.

Any insight into accomplishing this upgrade would be very much appreciated.

Have a great evening and thanks in advance.

-Nick

NOPE! Soldered on!

8GB is 8GB just like G1's!

There are 643 CF-20's in the configurator and they ALL have 8GB... 16GB would be project driven (AKA, a company wants 1000 of them or something like that)

Thanks!
