Hey everyone,

I have an upgraded six year old HP laptop (ab219tx) which I no longer require as I have a better laptop now.

The laptop has external wear and tear but works flawlessly as a computer.

-- Specifications --

Processor - Intel i5-5200U GPU - NVIDIA GeForce 940m + Intel Integrated Graphics RAM - 8Gb DDR3 (upgradable) Display - 15.6inch LCD Storage - 240Gb SSD (upgradable) Speakers - B&O Speakers (quite good, better than my new gaming laptop) Ports - HDMI 2.0, 3 x USB A, Ethernet, 3.5mm AUX, DVD-RW Drive

-- Benchmarks --

I have run several benchmarks on this PC in the past few days, results are attached in this listing.

I’ve played games such as FIFA14, CS1.6, Dota2, COD BO2, Borderlands 2, AOE3, Starcraft 2 etc at 60fps low-medium settings. You can watch YouTube videos to see gaming performance for a device with these specifications.

-- Battery Life --

The battery life of this laptop is 3-4 hours with light use but much lesser if you plan to game on battery. It has a good standby time of 5-6 hours.

For testing I played a YouTube video ("4K UHD 10 hours - Earth from Space & Space Wind Audio - relaxing, meditation, nature") at 720p, 50% brightness at full volume. This lasted for 3.5hrs which is decent for an old laptop. You can, of course, replace the battery if you want.

-- Issues --

1. There are signs of slight external wear and tear such as chips, dents, scratches and rubber feet coming off (you can zoom into the photos to see for yourself) 2. There is only 120-140Gb free storage after installing Windows which is because I changed the 1Tb HDD to 240Gb SSD for faster speed, I use an external storage to store large files and keep only necessary software on the device (you can always upgrade the storage or replace the DVD-Drive with a SATA compatible storage device to increase total capacity)

-- Conclusion --

1. It is an excellent budget esports machine as it will run titles such as Dota, LoL, Valorant, CSGO, PUBGM etc. flawlessly at low-medium settings 2. It is a good all-purpose laptop for a first time PC user, an old person with limited requirements or someone with a low budget who wants to do a mix of browsing, office work, gaming, coding and media consumption 3. Since it has an SSD, this is a snappy laptop and takes only a few seconds to boot (vs minutes if using an HDD) and opens applications very quickly 4. Modular laptop : This is a very easy to upgrade laptop and you can change the RAM and SATA drives fairly easily without needing to visit a technician (all you need is an appropriate screwdriver and some patience)

-- Notes --

1. Price is reasonable : I've compared other listings for comparable devices and I've concluded that 20k is a good final price for this configuration 2. In person testing : I can run benchmarks (artificial and gaming) in person or on video call before handing the laptop over
