My neighbour is offering me his Asus Rog Strix Gl502vs for £1100 and I can't find the exact same spec laptop anywhere to compare the prices.

Here are the specs:

120hz 15.6inch ips screen with g-sync

32gb ram

I7-7700hq

1070gpu 8gb

250ssd

1tb HDD

Is this worth the asking price? Son has been begging me for a laptop so thought I'd start here first. Cheers.

How do I check the laptop before buying it? Is there some sort of software on there that will do a diagnostic check for any issues?

Now that you've told him about this thread and he's checked it out, no doubt the price has just gone up.

Lol. Good luck with your purchase. And as for any softwares, his your neighbour, you can always ask him in a timely manner ( obviously not after a years usage ) if any does go wrong

My son will be taking it back with him to Cardiff for university. So i need to test it before he goes.

I had this exact same laptop until someone stole my bag whilst I was in a meeting with Boris. I haven't told my boss yet that it has gone missing. Not with all the stuff she has on her plate with Brexit and re-election.
#18
For that price buy it wish I had a good neighbor
#19
damn good price, whats wrong with it?

Same specs except skylake cpu is over £1600 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-ROG-GL502VS-DB71-HID1-i7-6700HQ-2-6-3-5GHz/dp/B01KFG3PVO?th=1

I'm presuming your neighbour can show you it working But I think this is a gaming laptop.
So yes you may be saving £350+ on the eBay price and getting alot if bang for your buck. But if your son is just web surfing and doing college work then it's way over powered.
You would be better buying something from a retail store with warranty that if anything happens whist your son is away he can simply take it in store. If this fails in 6 months time you will be spending another £1000 to replace it.. If both you and your son don't know much about laptops then I'd say a warranty is your best bet. Great price though so your neighbour is a good neighbour!!

What do you mean by testing it? Are you going to ask it to do some arithmetic or ask it the capital cities of some countries. Why would a laptop need testing?
