I don't know about you but I use my laptop daily. I use it for work and then come home in the evening and use it to blog, pin my life away on Pinterest & watch YouTube videos (obsessed with make up tutorials!). There's just something about sitting and typing on an actual keyboard instead of your phone sometimes. 

As a graphic designer, my laptop is very important to me! All my designs & artwork are on there and of course, my design software. I use it for both business & personal use, and because of that I'm concerned that I might be over using it. I've been thinking about buying myself a Macbook for personal/home use and my go to when buying or selling online classifieds Gumtree have made my life easier once again with a Laptop Price Checker

The laptop price checker is an easy to navigate tool which allows buyers or sellers to work out the average price of the laptop they're interested in buying or selling by simply choosing their manufacturer and model and the laptop price checker does the rest. It also has a handy slider function which helps you determine at which rate your price will sell for. This tool minimizes the hassle of researching other ads to see how much to pay when buying a secondhand laptop. 

I have a few tips to share on what to look out for when buying a secondhand laptop to best suit your needs and budget. 

  • Use the laptop price checker to determine what the cost & work out your budget.
  • Decide what you're going to use the laptop for. Home use, web browsing or a bit of office work does not need a laptop with specs that you won't use. Do check if the laptop has built in wifi if you require it. 
  • Check out reviews online on the make/model you're interested in buying to see if any problems have arisen that could possibly make your bargain laptop more of a loss later on.
  • Arrange to meet in person to view and inspect the laptop. 
  • Check for cracks or defects on the screen and make sure the screen is clear when in use. 
  • Check the keyboard and touch pad to make sure they work.
  • Bring a USB to check that all the ports function and bring a DVD to see if the CD drive works. 
  • Check the battery levels on the laptop. Unplug the power cord and let it run only with the battery to determine the battery capacity. 
With the Gumtree laptop price checker and my tips above, I think you're well on your way to having a new laptop without having to spend that much money.
