I have a couple dozen of them at work (a police department). We've been getting ToughBook's for about 10 years now. I've swapped out SO-DIMMs and hard disks that have gone bad. The other guy in my office is a little better than me with actual finger work and has swapped out touchpads, keyboards, and screens over and over again. They're great units and worth their weight in gold. If there seems to be any weakness with them, it seems to be the touhpads.

Also, the Bluetooth modules that Panasonic uses are made by Toshiba :angry: In Linux this generally means you're going to need to use the omnibook module. In Arch this is no problem - just get it from AUR. In Ubuntu I found it to be a bit more involved.

My model don't have bluetooth (wish it did) and everything works great without any problems (except touch-screen calibration in Ubuntu). I was just wondering if i could upgrade the processor to a dual-core or higher and if not is there an upgraded motherboard for this model which support faster processors

Its should be thought of the same as any other laptop, in the sense that the only things that are user upgradable is the memory, wireless card and hard drive.
