Dell XPS 15z, bought in late 2011. Wanting $1100. Wellington Central, pick up fine, will calculate shipping costs tomorrow and update.

Awesome laptop that's seen me through many late night uni assignments (and helped me procrastinate with video games). It has a brilliant 1080p display with really good colours, very full and bright. Has one of the best laptop keyboards I have ever used, incredibly comfortable to type on, even for extended periods of time, and is fully backlit. Very nice specs for a mid-high end laptop, can run pretty much any game you can throw at it, often at full 1080.

Has some damage but is all cosmetic, the laptop itself still runs fantastically. There's a plastic rim that runs all around the base of the laptop and sections of it have become to come off. There is a small crack along the back on one of the vents. A little bit of plastic has come off the side where the HDMI cable plugs in. Finally, the bezel on the screen has come away from the screen slightly. All these problems are pretty minor and haven't affected how the device runs at all. The only reason I'm selling this device is that I need to get something smaller that I can cart around the university which this device is not ideal for. If it wasn't for that I would have been happy to hang onto this laptop for another 3 years or so. It's very powerful and hasn't let me down.

Specs and some benchmarks available here. I'm happy to answer any questions and, if you're in the Wellington area, feel free to PM me to arrange to come and have a look at it. Happy to do pick ups or to investigate how much postage would cost if you're interested, just PM me! Thanks!

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.
