They have every feature and both can play shooter games, however If you are in a Police vehicle and think a CF-31 will save time....it will…3 seconds max.
Going to the Jungle to find the cure for cancer. Bring a CF-30MK2 or CF-19MK2. Not the NEW CF-19 or CF-31. You have no program that requires the i5 or i7 when doing research. Not even Gold Exploration or the Military have programs running Win 8. Next: Replacement, if you need to insure a Laptop, you've spend to much.

The LCD's crack, Place the CF-31 on a rock bed near a stream and you'll scratch and puncture the bottom. The Key's pop off easily and the fins on the CF-19 crack at the screw holds. Be careful with a NEW TOUGHBOOK. Not one reseller will back damage, your warranty only covers, limited internal flaws, never exterior. Crack your LCD, your out $450.00. Puncture the base, your out $300.00. Even the speaker gets wet then sounds distorted. Now look at the USED CF-30. These machines have the same warranty, same size HDD, Same Gel Filled Caddy, Same KB, Same LCD, same Optical Drive, Same USB ports. Just a newer video card, more ram and a updated Intel Chip.
