This is the reason why you should purchase a SDconnect C4 multiplexer with a Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 (NOT Dell Laptop)?
Why it’s an old laptop?
The laptop old because the item is used before delivery and may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.
It’s absolutely unnecessary to get a brand-new laptop for auto repair.
It’s easily get rubbed or destroyed when used it in real maintenance.
So, to get a second-hand but workable laptop will help SAVE A LOT.
Why you should have Panasonic Toughbook instead of Dell Laptop?
The Panasonic is one of the toughest laptops in the world.
It’s mouthful and vying for the most indestructible, anywhere, anytime commercial notebooks.
This fully-rugged mobile PC is encased in a magnesium alloy with an 80GB shock-mounted, removable hard drive in stainless steel case, 1024 x 768 (XGA) screen resolution, Intel Core 2 Duo 1.20GHz, expandable to 4096 MB (DDR3) RAM, GPS, EV-DO, HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth, and up to 7 hours of battery life.
Security features are top-notch too – finger-print scanner, smart card reader, password for HDD lock and cable lock slot. It’s resistant to dust or water so you can still use it even during a downpour (you can’t bring it underwater though). Costs a whooping $6,500 if it’s a brand new. But it’s only $350 around if it’s a send-hand.
So Panasonic Toughbook 19 is much more better than Dell D630 for car repair. No worry about that it’ll be damaged by accident and not work because of bad hardware design.
With the Panasonic CF-19’s dedicated serial port, there is no issue for user…. it was plug and play… the HDD with Mercedes software is loaded into the Panasonic and WIS/EPC and XENTRY/DAS has been activated with “activation keys” before delivery…users can use it for Mercedes-Benz diagnostics, coding or programming with SD connect C4, when they receive the package.
