Re: Panasonic Toughbook - Chartplotter etc - Any Good ?

I had one with CM93 charts and OpnCpn. Worked fine for that but the machine is pretty limited as to how much RAM you can install and is only a 1GHz processor so I sold it to a fellow sailor to use as a backup to his backups and bought a CF74 for a bit more money. Much lighter built laptop but faster processor and more RAM capacity which I needed for other programs.There is video on YouTube of a guy pouring a bucket of water on the keyboard of a CF74 while it is running, all to no effect. You could do that with a CF28 as well. I think you could also drive over a CF28 but not a CF74
