    I have a Samsung NP300E5A-S01UK
    Excellent condition with a 2 week old SSD and windows 7.
    Quick specs,
    i5 2450m @2.5GHZ with turbo boost upto 3.1GHZ
    6GB ram (upgradeable)
    120GB M500 Crucial SSD
    1366x768 screen
    HDMI
    Dual graphics (dedicated card for when the on board is not enough)

    Boots fully into windows 7 64 in <15 seconds

    Or with the 500GB HDD £310 plus delivery

    A certain auction site has the lower spec 4GB ram model at £375 plus delivery which is where i got a guide from, with the SSD i think my price is very reasonable.

    Will shortly have an Asus N55SF (i5 version) in excellent condition, other than normal finger wear on trackpad.

    It's not ready to go yet as I have only just decided to sell and haven't formatted and clean installed Windows 7.

    Looking for £325.00 including laptop bag.

    Hi, What is the dedicated card?
    Thanks

    Does it have any dedicated graphics card?
    Thanks

    Hi, I'm guessing the warranty is transferable?
    Thanks

    Nah that's too low, I basically want £400 + p&p costs. Insuring a laptop is proving expensive so it's hard to find a delivery service that's south of £20.

    • Intel® Core™ i7-3630QM Processor (2.4GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) - runs at 3.3GHz now
    • 16Gb DDR3 RAM
    • 250GB Samsung EVO SSD (550/550) with Windows 8 and unlocked BIOS
    • 750Gb SATA Hard Drive
    • Express Cache 8Gb for fast boot
    • 17.3 inch SuperBright 400nit Full HD LED Display (1920 x 1080), 120Hz capable
    • NVidia GeForce GTX 675GM graphics 2GB GDDR5
    • Intel® HM76 Main Chipset
    • Blu-ray Drive
    • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-FI; Bluetooth® v3.0
    • 2 megapixel Webcam
    • HDMI, 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0; 3-in-1 card reader
    BF3 at 50-60fps -
    Battlefield 3 on Samsung NP700G7C-S02UK Laptop


    Plays BF4 medium settings at 60fps. High/Ultra at about 40fps.

    One problem is that the Enter key needs replacing. A new KB will cost you £70-ish but all you need is the Enter key lol. No need to change the KB.

    If interested, let me know

    Hi Buddy, i never play games, this has only been used for browsing and the odd download!
    Hence why nothing is worn at all, i would avoid a second hand laptop used for gaming at all costs as they are always abused to hell :D
    I always buy a much better spec laptop than i need though, the cheap ones are always rubbish!
    My partner has a £400 i3 HP and its sooo naff compared to mine! Overheats, battery life is rubbish ect!
    This machine is on bog standard performance settings and lasts about 4 hours browsing.

    Hard to say really. It cost £1400 new and I added the Samsung 250GB SSD

    But with the Enter key issue, I'd need to take that into account

    Make me an offer and I'll consider it

    It'll come with a free gaming mouse also (A4 Tech)

    Apologies for the poor quality, i am away from home so used the iphone (i am visiting my nan, the joys!)
    Aside from a couple of very feint marks on the lid (barely visible, not noticed before!) its in superb condition.
    Zero wear to the palm rest area, even all the stickers look brand new :)
    It is also regularly air dusted :smashin:

    Just had a think, can you do £360 delivered with the 500GB HDD chucked in as well so I can turn it into a portable drive?

    If you can go to £370 we have a deal, RMSD is going to be just under £30 :eek:
    I was going to use UPS 24 which is my cheapest drop off courier, but they are more expensive with insurance!
    Would post Monday so you would receive Tuesday before 1PM :thumbsup:
    I will also include a laptop bag :)

    obviously it comes with the charger, does it also comes with windows 7 cd? anything else?
    edit: how much would you want without the 500gb HDD?

    Yes comes with charger. this did not come with a windows 7 cd, instead it had options to create your own recovery cd.
    Obviously this is a waste of time as it had lots of bloatware, so i downloaded the legal windows 7 ISO online from digitalriver and used that with the key on the machine :)
    This is 100% legal and I will include this DVD :)
    Happy to do £360 all in without the 500GB drive?
