For Trade: ASUS Laptop (Core2duo) for a Netbook £260.00

7y, 8m agoPosted 7 years, 8 months agoFeedback:66 Positive/0 Neutral/1 Negative
Want to exchange my wifes laptop for a netbook. Something that can handle windows or has windows on it. Not fussed if it doesn't have windows on it aslong as someone can point me in the direction of how to put it on it with a USB stick.

Has two superifical cracks in the lower casing.. Laptop is in perfect working order though. But thats why i'm willing to do a straight swap for a cheap network, due to the cracks. Pics below of laptop

Priced at £260 inc delivery if someone wants to buy it.

Asus Laptop:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T7250
Screen: 15.4"
RAM: 2GB
GFX: Nvidia Geforce 8400m G
HDD: 140GB
OS: Vista Home Prem (genuine copy)

Has your usual gubbins: Wifi, Bluetooth, 1.3mp camera build in with mic. Also comes with an offical asus case.

Also has a finger print reader (i know, pointless. lol)

This has always recieved incredibley light use, as it's my wife. After seeing my new Macbook tho she wants something more compact.

Sorry it's a 160GB hdd, not 140GB

Hi, you wrote "network" in the title..:)
#3
hehe aye :). Fixed the pics aswell.
#4
What do you mean by superficial cracks?
#5
Pics are present of both the cracks.

When i mean superficial.. I mean they're just two cracks, don't affect the laptop in any way. Works perfectly.
#6
may i ask how the cracks happened? dropped?
#7
Where are you based for a straight swap? I have an acer aspire one with warrenty that I may consider for this.
#8
awoodhall2003: I honestly don't know, my wife doesn't know either.. We suspect it was left on the floor and someone walked on it.. We noticed the cracks around 6 months ago. But because the laptop has worked perfectly, we haven't worried about it... Since it's just my wifes.. She only uses it for Facebook and Majong lol

It's still got around 5-6 month warranty left. Which i can provide proof of if anyone wants, as the warranty stick is on the underneath of the laptop.

I didn't claim the cracks within the warranty as i presume they wouldn't do anything about it and just claim misuse.

Spic: I'm based in Burton Upon Trent.. I'd be interested in the aspire one.
#9
are you prepared to post 1st to an established member?
#10
I am indeed.
#11
I have a Advent 4211 which cost £280 in september and is boxed as new and still has the plastic protector on top, Also comes with receipt for warranty,Can you tell me the exact model no and would you be interested in a swap ?.
#12
It's an Asus F3SC

Yeah she'd be interested in that.. Could you list the specs and what colour it is matey.

Also spic what are the specs of the aspire one and colour.

Cheers
#13
Bumpy bumpy bumpy. :)

Two/Three people interested. Surely someone else wants to get in quick and get the swap :)
#14
The specs of mine are as follows:
Intel Atom 1.6Ghz
1GB of RAM
120GB HDD
8.9" WSXGA screen
5-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC, MS, MS PRO, xD)
SD card reader
3 USB 2.0 ports
External display (VGA) port
Headphone/speaker/line-out jack
Microphone-in jack
Ethernet (RJ-45) port
DC-in jack for AC adapter
It came with Linux, but I currently have a beta version of Windows 7 on it at the moment.
Avsolutely no problems with it what so ever, has about 7-8 months warrenty left on it, and is the white one.
Only use it for taking to uni every now and again, so really has not had much use.
If we are to do a swap, how would we go about? Personally, I would rather meet up, rather then send this off (no offence or anything), but I'm currently down Portsmouth at uni atm, or can get to West Sussex and surrounding areas if you are ever down this way?
#15
Have to be postage or u come to me. Wife is like 4 weeks away from giving birth. So I'm home bound atm I'm afraid.


*This is considered at the 3rd bump (aScottishBloke) - If you feel the need to disagree or comment, please do it by reporting the thread. Anything else will be treated as a bump if not directly related to the sale.

In order to avoid future bumps, it would be easier if you simple edited your previous entry as your posts were going to run consecutively.

Bump for the evening lot
#17
well, im still interested, but im just a bit wary in case of problems, as there have been a lot of problems on this site regarding scams and everything (not saying you are going to, its just I dont want to lose out or anything)

EDIT- do you have any feedback elsewhere?

You could always arrange a courier for one another, so that you both know that its booked, then both confirm to one another when picked up the receipt to one another, then if one hasnt been picked up recall it? therefore both done at same time, and fair?

yeah that would work as long as it's not a brick in a cardboard box ;-)
but to be fair to the op he said he would post 1st to someone such as myself or you with good history so i doubt he's out to scam
#20
I was interested but tracking down a casing in the Uk is a complete nightmare,If it was closer would have taken a look at it,good luck with the sale,

Thread closed.

Re post #16. I don't know why you treat with such contempt. 6/9 posts threads created have been closed for various rule breaches. No point in quoting again.
banned#22
It's been a long day, however I'll get the excuses out of the way and make an apology spritey. Unfortunately for you, I took post #15 as yet another of yours, hence my rant above and subsequent thread closure.

I got it wrong, so apologies for the small suspension which should now be lifted.

If you need post #22 deleted, give me a PM and I'll do it.

Cheers
#23
Not quite sure what happened here...lol
Well, I am definately still up for this, if we can sort out the delivery.

EDIT- sorry what processor speed has this got as it shipped with differnet speed ones.

Is ok - we all have one of those.

Hey spic - I have 16 or so ebay feedback... Equally tho you only have 2 feedback here, despite mine being zero.. I did trade Resident Evil 5 for an iPod shuffle here (I posted first) - he just hasn't added the feedback yet (his username is dontdothatagain if you wanna msg him). So you got any feedback from somewhere else.

The processor is a Core2Duo 2.0ghz

I guess in this situation, we probably both taking a risk. It's upto you though, gotta be careful now a days.

Yeah i know, I know I'm being a bit of a plank over this, but cant really afford to lose out. I have some feedback on ebay as well, recently just sold a couple of bits on there.
I think the best bet is to do what was said above - we both send on the same day and then send the tracking numbers to each other.
The only problem I have just realised though is that the box is at home - I am currently at uni. So I will have to get back and get it, so if you are in a bit of a rush then that could be a problem.
#27
Quite happy to agree the trade and wait bud, it's for the wife so not really in a massive rush

Yeah that's fine, i can send it by royal mail and give you the tracking number straight away by text msg or summit. I wouldn't be able to send it till 12.45 on the day we agree tho, as i'll have to go post it at lunch from work.

Can throw you my work contact details if you like, just to make you feel easier about it all. As you seem a little more concern about the trade than i do. I work for a medical software development company.

Ok, what I wil do is see if my mum will send it to me to send on to you, otherwise I will take a drive up there during the week.
What I will do is contact you tomorrow once I have phoned her and let you know what is happening, then we can go from there if you are happy with that?

We can swap details tomorrow if that is ok?
#29

Could u provide some pics of it tho before we agree firm, as i'd like to show the wife.

Sorry about the photos, they are not great!

Also, I should have the box by wednesday, (its being sent to me tomorrow), so I will contact you then on this thread once it has been received, then we can swap contact details and go from there if that is ok and you are still happy to proceed.

Thanks for waiting on me as well

Unfortunately my wife has decided she doesn't like the Asus..

I took her to a shop to see it in action, she prefers the Toshiba NC10.

samsung make the nc10 dont they?
doubt youll get a trade for one of those mate
#35
Samsung yes.

I should get a trade, i've spoken to Asus and they're willing to replace the laptop due to the cracks. As this has appeared to be a common problem is certain batchs of this laptop.

So mod can close this please. I'll relist it once new one arrives.
