      Hi there, could well be interested in this. Could I just ask a few questions such as age of the device the condition (i.e any notable marks, scratches, keyboard wear etc)? Also, is there a way of checking the battery health at all?

      Many thanks and look forward to hearing.

      Hi Nate,
      Thanks for the queries
      The Chromebook is in remarkable condition with zero scratches on both the outer casing or inside, i will double check thoroughly tonight when i get home from work.

      I just seen a command that can be run to determine battery health and the number of cycles, so i will also run this tonight as well and update you.

      From my own usage i can confirm the battery life is pretty exceptional, i would personally get 3-4 days usage from a single battery charge. The standby time is currently amazing, as i charged it fully 10+ days ago and it is still in the 90%+ range

      Thanks for coming back to me. I actually had one up until a couple of years ago and sort of regretted ever selling it really. It’s a bit of a ‘nostalgia’ purchase but it sounds like you have really looked after it and so all being well, if there is still plenty of battery health and it comes boxed etc then I’d be interested.

      Look forward to hearing later. Take care…

      Hi nate,

      Below battery stats: amazingly the battery cycle count is only 26 so you can see how little use i have had of it and why it’s in such good condition!

      Battery Health is touching on 96%

      I should point out i don’t have the original box for chromebook. However it will be packaged and sent securely for anyone who purchases.

      Thanks

      Thanks for all of the updates

      @midgelfc

      So tempted by this, however not quite sure what my overall usage would be if at all. Very much an impulse purchase so will just have to give it some thought. Definitely a great little machine and in great condition. I expect speed wise it still keeps up with anything out there given how light Chrome OS is on the device. So to anybody else looking who (unlike me) doesn’t already have a laptop. I think it’s s great price for an underrated machine.

      Am I right in thinking Chromebooks receive updates for only a limited time?

      I just updated it the other day, so it’s still receiving updates

    14. Just to jump in here; last I knew the Pixel stopped receiving updates and the latest one (last week) came very much out of the blue as support was officially ceased.

      Very well kept machine

      Itching to get my hands on a decent Chromebook.
      Yours is everything i’m looking for spec wise. it’s the age of the machine.,plus i guess it wont be getting many more updates.
      I’ll offer £250 which i realise is way lowere than your looking for. If it was a newer model and more likeley to revceive Updates. Would have raised my offer accordingly.
      Regards
      ian

      Cheers for the offer, that is a bit too much below my asking price sorry.

      Just with regards to updates this Chromebook Pixel is to keep receiving updates until June 2020, as stated here direct from Google, so till some life left in it

For Sale – or Trade Asus Zenbook Pro 14″ i7 8th Gen CPU Geforce GTX 1050 Video Card 250GB SSD 8GB RAM – £850

I got this excellent laptop just a few weeks back but would prefer a 13″ Apple MacBook Pro/Air or iPad.

The laptop has warranty until 22 July 2020

I do not have a receipt as the laptop was a gift.

The date above is taken from “My ASUS” which states that this is the date used if no proof of purchase is available.

I have just logged a repair request with ASUS through to the RMA issue stage before cancelling and only needed to supply the serial number.

Whilst it would seem to me that you would be able to take advantage of the warranty you should also check to satisfy yourself.

Here is a link for full details of the laptop

ASUS ZenBook Pro 14 UX480FD | Laptops | ASUS United Kingdom

Intel® Core™ i7-8565U processor
1.8GHz quad-core with Turbo Boost (up to 4.6GHz) and 8MB cache
