Hi guys

Bought this on a recent trip. Very light usage so far (about 20-25 hours). Here is a rundown of the specs:

13.3" Full HD display
Intel® Celeron® processor N2840
4GB system memory for basic multitasking
16GB solid state drive (SSD)
Intel® HD Graphics
Weighs 3 lbs. and measures 0.8" thin
Bluetooth 4.0 interface syncs with compatible devices
1 USB 3.0 port maximizes the latest high-speed devices
Also includes 1 USB 2.0 port to connect more accessories and peripherals. The USB 3.0 port is backward-compatible with USB 2.0 devices (at 2.0 speeds).
HDMI output expands your viewing options
Built-in media reader for simple photo transfer
Supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, SDXC, miniSD, and microSD memory card formats.
Dual-band wireless network connectivity

Practically: this laptop is as light as a Macbook air (i think it is lighter). Pretty much the best screen in Chromebooks (bar the Pixel). Great to watch movies/videos and photos on. You can insert a 64gb SD card in the slot and store movies etc on there to watch on the laptop (I did this and it works fine). The SD card sits flush so it does not protrude at all. 

In terms of usage - no, it is not a primary machine. Its best use is as a secondary machine for someone on the go. So its best for someone who has a desktop computer but needs to regularly access the net on the go. The battery life, i cannot say exactly as this is not my daily go to machine (I have a Macair for that) is around 6-7 hours give or take. Depending on the usage of course. 

Selling as I have no need for it. Includes power adapter (quite portable actually). Looking for offers around $500. Please PM me. 

Pick up in Auckland CBD or Ellerslie after hours/weekends.

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.
