    Barry,

    I think I cannot live without BT3.

    You think BT3 stable release would support the new eee's?

    Or should I wait for IBM Lenovo X300 for BT3 tests?

    Bugs.. bugs.. bugs.. in my head....!

An Ubiquiti SRC for use with an external cantenna or yagi antenna, and a Netgear WG511T for local short range use. Both cards are Atheros chip based and compatible under BT3beta and the Wildpackets driver. No problems with either. I don't run Compiz Fusion so I cannot comment on that aspect, but I run many different applications on all three operating systems and have not had any problems to date.

    If you decide on a Toughbook and you find one on eBay, just make sure it's from a reputable seller and make sure you get pictures of the unit you are actually bidding on. There is a lot of junk out there.

    raVenX,

    I found a website here in istanbul which sells new toughbooks. There is one model that I really liked... The Panasonic Toughbook CF30.. You think the BT3 works with newer models?

    I can't say for sure, but I had a CF-29 and ran BT2 from a LiveCD on that model with no problems. I would think that the CF-30 would be no different.

    After the CF-28, Panasonic switched from a magnesium case to some sort of hardened plastic. I actually went from a CF-29 down to a CF-28 because I preferred the magnesium over the plastic. All CF-xx Toughbooks pass the same stringent strength and durability tests so one could conclude magesium versus plastic is just a personal preference.

    Brand new Toughbooks carry a hefty price tag. I was trying to save you some money by suggesting a used Toughbook. If you're dead set on buying a new laptop, I'm sure there are many other quality laptops out there that will you suit your needs at a much lower cost than a new Toughbook.
