As you can see from the pictures and video the laptop is in Very Good condition, I have only noticed the following very minor cosmetic imperfections & signs of use.

  • A few very slight minor scuffs / scratch marks to the bottom case and a small hair line surface crack to the top right just next to the rubber foot. Not really an issue very minor more cosmetic then anything else, detailed in the product picture and video.

Preparation, Diagnostics & Cleaning

The internal fan has been removed cleaned, hoovered then new thermal paste applied to the heatsink, fan re-seated and sprayed with compressed air to ensure of a cool quiet running experience as you can see from the good processor temperature reading via the Core Temp App. The motherboard is checked for any signs of liquid spills and sprayed with compressed air to remove any dust or debris. The keyboard has been fully tested and cleaned with a sanitizer solution  to remove any dirt and grime! All exteriors of the laptop are then cleaned with a sanitizer solution using a microfiber cloth. The screen is cleaned using a non-smear solution and a specialized LCD screen cleaning cloth. All ports are checked and tested as working.

The SSD has been checked using the Crystal Disk Info application and it reports Good health and a good temperature as you can see. The laptop then has a full diagnostic scan to ensure there are no failings or issues, as you will see in the video it passed without any issues. It is then left to run for at least 24 hours (generally 48 hours) without been allowed to sleep or hibernate to ensure no issues develop.


This model has one internal 3 cell battery and an external 3 cell battery Windows has indicated 10:18 after a full charge, the laptop has then been left to run on the batteries for 1:30 hours after which Windows indicated 9:04 hours remaining

The batteries have also been scanned with the Battery Info View App which reports a battery health of 88.4% & 87.9% respectively.

This will vary depending on usage and settings and is an indication only I offer no guarantees on the batteries as they are used consumable items.

As you will see the laptop has a tamper evident security seal on the rear of the laptop if this is removed or damaged this may invalidate the warranty and return process

All Windows, System & Bios Updates are applied at the time of listing so its ready to go!
