Default Panasonic Toughbook CF-52 and Tactrix Openport 2.0

I got this computer and the Tactrix to help diagnose and for tuning my car, but I sold the car a few months back. I only really used it once to test out the Tactrix and see what kind of live data I could read with ROM Raider, which is already installed and working. If you don't know, ROM Raider can be a bit of a hassle to get installed and running, so at least you won't have to worry about doing that. I'm not much of a computer guy, so it was a hassle for me at least, but yeah, it's working.

The computer I got from a guy who reconditions older model Toughbooks exclusively. These things are great for use in a shop, they can take plenty of abuse and everything is easily replaceable. The hard drive, battery, pretty much all the hardware can be swapped out in a matter of seconds! The police use these in their cruisers. This one is a CF-52, which is an older model, but it is more than enough for running ROM Raider and other software you might want to use for tuning other cars as well. I got no personal info on this thing, literally the only thing I did with it was install ROM Raider and plug it into my car to make sure it all worked. I can't remember the exact specs, but if I remember correct it has 4GB RAM, 300GB hard drive, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz processor. It also has Windows 7 ultimate edition. The battery is still in good condition. Wifi doesn't work, but the guy gave me a USB device that serves as a wifi connection. Like I said, I'm not a computer guy, let alone a windows computer guy (I'm used to MacOS). Come take a look at it, and if it will work for you, great! If not, no big deal. It's just sitting collecting dust in my locker at work right now.

The Tactrix Openport is the 2.0 model. Comes with all the Subaru and Mitsubishi connectors for reprogramming. It's literally all the hardware that Tactrix sells. New in box. Like I mentioned above, I only used it once to see what kind of live data I could read in my car.

The computer cost me $700, and the Tactrix setup was over $200 after the $USD conversion rate and shipping. Looking for $750, or best offer.

I also have a few other tools for Subarus, the Company 23 crank pulley removal tool and their cam holding tool for doing timing belts on EJ motors, all brand new and never used. I really thought I was going to keep that car, so I bought a bunch of stuff thinking I would use it one day.
