It is a Mitek 8350 or 8355 depending on which document I look at. I
purchased it through M-tech. It appears to be a great laptop, but it is a
bit short on documentation.
When I attempted the port last night, it failed on depends. I did not try
having it ignore the signatures. I will give that a try tonight.
