That is a customer specific model, some times they just don't show up.

Should be AT&T, is the badge missing on the lid? if so it probably use to say AT&T.

CUSTOMER SPECIFIC AT&T,WIN7, INTEL I5-3320M 2.60GHZ,13.1-
It's also showing a express card slot not a smart card slot.

Thankyou ADOR. Where do you get the details from?

Does a customer specific model give any limitations to the BIOS, use or upgrade of the laptop?

Most customer specific models have a custom BIOS.
We do not know what is customized in the BIOS. Could be as simple as maximum operating temperatures.
Or it could be more severe such as all wireless disabled and or all usb ports disabled.
I personally try to avoid anything with a custom BIOS unless it is a very good price.

Here is a custom BIOS version number
CF-31SBL141M-- BIOS Ver. V3.00L12 M32
The Mxx at the end indicates a custom BIOS. In this case M32..
Most of the time you can not upgrade or flash the BIOS to a standard version.

I have a soft spot for the special models. That info was done done on done on a quick Google search and double checking a list I have. I use to have a CF 30 AT&T model years ago then I think it was Shawn that got it from me.
