As you can see from the video and pictures the laptop is in Excellent Condition, I have only noticed the following minor cosmetic imperfections and signs of use

  • Minor scuffs / scratch marks to the lid, with a faint sticker mark to the front left corner
  • A few light scuffs / scratch marks to the bottom case
  • Slight shine to some of the keys, purely cosmetic all keys work just fine and have been properly cleaned and sanitized see below section for further details.

Preparation, Diagnostics & Cleaning

The internal fan has been cleaned hoovered 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 shown in the product picture. The motherboard is checked for any signs of liquid spills carefully hoovered then sprayed with compressed air to remove any dust or debris. The keyboard has been fully tested and hoovered then cleaned with a sanitizer solution using a toothbrush 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 hoovered and tested as working.

The SSD have been checked using the Crystal Disk application and as you can see in the product it reports Good health and a good temperature. 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 without been allowed to sleep or hibernate to ensure no issues develop.


This model has one internal battery, Windows has indicated 3:36 after a full charge the laptop has then been left to run on the battery without been allowed to sleep or hibernate or turn the screen off for 2 :30 hours after which Windows indicated 7:22 remaining @ 73% capacity. The Battery Info View tool is also used to obtain the readings of the battery health which is 77.3% as shown in the last picture in the listing photos. This will vary depending on usage and settings and is an indication only I offer no guarantees on the battery as it is a used consumable item.

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