Some of the guys will be by to advise,I will tell you that you will be much better off getting a CF-19mk1 or 2 from ebay,mk1's are dirt cheap and will run circles around that 18,4gb of ram and a ssd is the way to go. :D

Not sure what board you are talking about. Can you post a link or photo?

Please give us the full model number, like CF-18xxxxxxx

Possible it's a digitizer model, believe those didn't have a com port.
