First of all, I must mention that the lcd screen has been slightly damaged by soap water. I will try my best to show the damage on photos, inspection is also welcome before purchase.

Replacement lcd monitor can be purchased from ebay(overseas) and trademe(local). Prices(in NZD) including shipping/tax/duty from my observation is
$90(nzd) and $130 for WXGA HD (1366*768)
$160 and $200 for WUXGA HD (1920*1080)

------------------------------------------------
The laptop is 13 moths old, just over the 1 year warranty. Very small wears and tears which are not significant as laptop is made of matte plastic.

USB 3.0 port seems to have some compatibility issues with some USB 3.0 external storage devices. Some say its due to incorrect driver installation, Though a cheap USB 3.0 portable case i bought from trademe works perfectly fine.

Reason for selling:

I originally purchased it with the intention to use it at lan parties, I never went to one after buying it... So basically I've used it as a desktop replacement for its entire live which is rather a waste and I have other places i can spend money on.
