Appraisal: My ASUS K53SV

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi!



This is only sort of out of fun, but I wish to get my laptop appraised by you good folk.

I bought it around two years ago - through a VERY good online shop, with extremely good customer service - and I'm just looking to see what it would be worth today.

The specs are:

CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.0Ghz (Quad-Core)
RAM: 8 Gb. DDR3 1333 Mhz.
GPU: nVidia GeForce 540M 2 Gb.
SSD: Crucial m4 128 Gb.
ODD: A Dual Layer DVD burner from Matshi-ta (won't let me spell the name, because of a baaad word)
Battery: 6-Cell


The resolution is 1366x768. That's not very much, but it's a standard resolution for 15" laptops. The laptop itself works flawlessly. Since I put the SDD in it, it has faster boot-ups, loads and shutdown, which you probably already know of. It has gained me much more battery time as well. I use the laptop for studying. Mainly Adobe Master Collection CS6, and it works well with it. Of course the screen size and resolution does limit my efficiency, but it has no problem in dealing with larger workloads.

There's simply nothing to complain about it. I, myself, just wish to see what an estimate would be. As of gaming, the machine isn't a powerhouse (and let's face it, there are no real gAmeR l4pTopZ). But most DX9/10 games it can run pretty well. Blur runs smooth on max settings, and so does Torchlight II. Not the most power hungry games, I know, but it's the ones I tried, and laptops aren't really for hardcore graphical games.

The only thing "wrong" with this laptop is a few scratches, and wear and tear. Weighs around 2-2,5 Kg.


Original price: $1.325,37
Bought on sale for: 981,66


So, you good guys 'n' gals, what would you estimate my fully functional, ok-powerful, somewhat old laptop could be sold for?

similar specs of my lenovo laptop. lemme start by throwing a number out there. I kinda did an appraisal on it aswell

LINK for appraisal : http://www.overclock.net/t/1388788/completed-lenovo-ideapad-y470p-laptop-like-new-condition

so i am guessing your laptop might be going for something around 500-650 dollars. maybe more maybe less. I hope that gives you an idea. good luck.

Thanks for the reply! Your reply is actually quite helpful. I live in Denmark, so everything electronic is a tad more expensive here, so I could sell it for a little more than you suggest. But yeah, I kind of thought my laptop was in that area. Good to know though. I've had my eye on a really nice laptop with a 1920x1080 IPS screen, and 128 Gb. SSD. Maybe I'll sell my laptop... It's very tempting! Though it would provide some trouble in studying now. I just started my bachelor's degree in Web Development (not that I'm very good at coding HTML or anything), so without a laptop in school would be tricky smile.gif
