Selling a Fujitsu Lifebook A531 Laptop, which can be used for spares or a very simple repair job. All this laptop needs is a new HDD and operating system and it will be good as new.

It's a few years old, I think I've had it for 3 years and my dad had it for a year before that from new. Assume no box or manuals, but it does come with the battery pack/plug.

It's got a few scratches on the front of the lid, and a few blemishes, but everything else works/looks perfectly fine. This has been collecting dust for a while now and needs to go.

The only reason why I don't use it any more is because my HDD failed and I just didn't bother getting a new one as I had another laptop.

Looking for a quick sale, check my feedback for your own peace of mind.

Amazon link - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fujitsu-Lifebook-Laptop-Windows-Premium/dp/B00716QCQW

I don't think these get sold any more, but is a perfect laptop for anyone looking for one for their childs coursework etc. Quick enough laptop for most duties.

Forgot to mention, there is wear to the left mouse button, but it still works fine.

Additional problems found with this laptop upon putting in another HDD:

1) There seems to be a screw loose inside, so it rattles. I opened it up and couldn't find it, but I'm sure if someone knew where to look it's an easy find.
2) The space bar is slightly "sticky". Not in terms of something that has been spilled, but it needs to be pushed in the centre of the bar to work.
3) The left mouse button is the same as the space bar.
4) There is a graze on one of the corners, it looks chipped slightly.

Has it still got a fully readable Windows 7 key (usually on the bottom)?

Unfortunately not no. The label is still there but it's impossible to see the code.

One thing I forgot to mention. The left button for the mouse is very worn, as the pictures will show. But still works perfectly.

Thanks

Due to other issues with the laptop which the seller has honestly informed me, we will not be able to conclude this deal however as I've paid upfront in good faith, have requested a refund from seller. Will update accordingly. THANX

Care to elaborate, as I might put in an offer (depending on the 'defects')?

Hi,

Yes unfortunately there are a couple of other issues which I only found out about on Monday when I inserted another HDD to make sure everything was ok:

1) There seems to be a screw loose inside, so it rattles. I opened it up and couldn't find it, but I'm sure if someone knew where to look it's an easy find.
2) The space bar is slightly "sticky". Not in terms of something that has been spilled, but it needs to be pushed in the centre of the bar to work.
3) The left mouse button is the same as the space bar.

These were things I didn't notice until I was about to send it unfortunately.

Buyer just wants a refund now which is fair enough, but I'm unfortunately not going to lower the price for the problems because as far as I'm concerned the laptop is cheap enough as it is, even with these minor issues - by all means send any offers you may have.

I will sort out a refund for the buyer.

Thanks

Is this laptop the same as the one in the amazon link you gave? I'm interested if it is.

Yes it is, have a look at the post above your to check the other problems I found with it. I've also noticed there is a bit of a graze on one of the corners. Cheers.

Refund sorted out with the original buyer so this is available again.

Thanks

I would guess so, is there another version of this laptop? It's an A531 model, I assumed that it would be exactly the same.

The same sort of graze you would get if you rubbed the laptop corner on a brick wall slightly. I personally wouldn't buy this unless I was the one that was going to be using it for general purpose use. I would take a picture but my phone is broke at the moment.

Screen is spot on.

Does it come with a sticker i.e Pentium,i3,i5? This youtube video shows a Pentium version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlDQnN1EUMw (1min 40 sec)

There is a sticker to the right of the mouse pad that is saying intel inside, core i5.
