SUPER-POWERFUL LAPTOP. PLAYS GTA 4 AND ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS/PHOTOSHOP WITHOUT ISSUES
The charging port is broken but i've hotwired the remaining wires to the charging adapter (see images) so it does charge and can be used as more of a desktop (less portable) machine. I'd recommend you get this fixed, but I've used it for a month without problems. It's quite delicate and I would suggest you get a pro to have a look unless you know what you're doing. The charging port part is available on eBay for 99p but requires the entire laptop to be opened to fix.
On the other side, the bit around the power button is broken and is held on by sellotape. It seems to be holding really well and isn't a very serious cause for concern.
It's a few years old; broke the charging port within the first year and it's just been left on a shelf until a month ago. I've had it replaced with a Mac a long time ago so just looking to get rid of it.
Search for it on eBay and you'll see prices start at £189 for something in Grade C condition. Apart from the above, this laptop is spotless! (Does need a bit of cleaning due to sellotape marks on lid and speakers - as seen in images). I have priced it accordingly and am willing to take offers.
I've covered all the issues as thoroughly as I can in the description above and in the images. It's a fully-working laptop minus the defects above and more than capable for the average user.
