Age pegs it for me.

I'd give £60 for this.

Is this that rare 18 inch model?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / October 26, 2017 2:40 PM PDT

I can't find a comparable unit on the usual sites.

It looks like a gamer machine so tests to see if it's in good shape would dictate the price. Remember a new gamer laptop here is 1K buck so it does not matter yours has a big LCD or much else. Yours is going to be hard pressed to hit that 1K since the battery is old, and who knows about it's remaining life span.

Take your purchase price and halve it for each year old. Ask that much.

Yes this is the very rare model

I bought this for 1K, with in mind to use this for gaming.
I know the lifespan sucks, i just wanted some opinions from others Wink

Want to do it on a desktop and then use a light laptop or chrome book for anything away from the gaming computer.

Only you know the condition.

One of the areas I check is the keyboard and pad for signs of wear. I'll also get the Web Speccy report to see if the machine has glaring issues such as a HDD with any reallocated sectors. The Web Speccy tells me a lot about the machine's health along with the visible wear indications.

Web Speccy is at

If it's spotless and you have the original packing, docs, restore media and more, then your price moves up. Ebay it for what you want and see if the bidding goes up.

For me, no sale since I'm more into the current i7 gen Nvidia 1050 16GB RAM models you see at near the 1K USD mark today.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
