    Just upgraded to a CF-30 from a CF-28. What a difference. Just find it funny that it has to be DOWNgraded to Windows XP to work. LOL!

    We went from regular office grade laptops in our patrol car to these. Night and day. The office grade computers did not have back lit keys and when you typed you either had to turn on your dome light or buy an external usb light source. The touch screen feature is nice. Also with the old computers even set on the brightest screen level you still had a hard time seeing the screen. Not with the CF-30.

    Just out of the office and issued the CF-30. Tough as can be and appears to work quite well. Included in installed software is Microsoft Streets and Maps and that also works quite well. Pleased so far.
