Test was all 16GB ram and SSD! What it boils down to is UEFI support. If a Toughbook does not support UEFI that it will not run Windows 11 based on my testing!

And I would not even waste your time trying to find an i7 Mark 6 because the i7 is only 2% better than the I5. The proof is in the pudding:

Good to know, Rob. Thanks.

Thanks for tip Rob. I will stop looking at MK6 since it is not really much of an upgrade.

On the subject of the 31 mk6, does the ddr4 RAM in the mk6 add much besides price?

Later this year? are you allowed to give an approximate month? I only ask because I'll be on the lookout for a new(ish?) laptop soon for myself and even though I like the looks and concept of the 55 if there is a new fully rugged coming out I'd like to compare features and then choose what I'll get.

I'm under NDA's til it's released but I've seen it in great detail, I have pricing and SKU's but I haven't gotten my hands on it yet. I cannot legally give any more info than that. I will tell you this. Check the MK2 FZ-55 specs ;)

And again, I cannot give time frames but VERY SOON! :clapping:

Thanks!

My daily driver is still the 52gun from Jeff. I have an unused 31 mk4 and 19 mk6 collecting dust downstairs, along with a g1 and some of the older ones too.
Still using Linux exclusively on the 52. I just love the red led’s highlighting the kb.

Is this a custom mod? I couldn't find any pictures of it in the dark. I want to know more, this sounds super cool. Would love to see a picture!

Not much has changed here. CF-29Mk4, CF-30Mk2, CF-31Mk3, CF-52Mk2, CF-D1Mk1.
I had a box full of CF-19's in parts that I bought from Shawn but gave them to a retired military vet I met here in the ghetto. He said he was bored and needed something to occupy his time. Problem solved :D

All of my units are running different versions of MX Linux.

Life's Journey is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn-out shouting 'Woo Hoo! What a ride!

Motorsports - the only real sport. If it doesn't have a motor, it is just a game.

There is always something waiting at the end of the road, if you are not willing to see what it is, you probably shouldn't be out there in the first place.
