Options are nill. This appears to be a base model. It even has a B wireless card. For 240 bucks I guess I cant complain for any model of the cf-18

If you are using wi-fi , make sure you change out the card
A 2200bg card is way better in range and throughput than the 2100b
Even the base model is nice, they sure have bright screens
$240 is cheap you got a deal

OMG after further review the person actually painted the lid back red I guess he was trying to trick it out. I am still trying to get pics up Maybe I should start a business and call it Trick out your Panny. LOL

I just might change the card from b to a g card. Tom do you have a service manual cf-18 Here are the pics of my tricked out 18 the pictures are crappy but at least you can see that the guy actually painted it red and not a crappy job at all I actually thought for a minute that panny had colors There is only place on the laptop that you can tell he found the right paint for the alloy cover to paint over it.

Your sig spells "CF-18(MK-4) Windows 7, Intel 1.2..." You can't be referring to the RED PANNY, right?? Oh wait... you're talking about your previous toy! :lauging:

Guys, I'm waiting for a seller's invoice for a 1.1ghz CF-18 but what are the alphabet/mark designations for the various 18s? [eg. 29N=mk5, etc]. Thanks a bunch!

More updates when I have my grubby hands on it :pbjt:

Thanks Alex. What differentiates a Mk2 from a Mk3? Which has wifi or are the antennae already built in, regardless of options?
