CA Bay Area - Selling Razer Blade 14" Laptop $300 - 7th Gen i7, GTX1060 Graphics, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD

(Mods: Feel free to move to the most appropriate sub-forum)

I’m selling my old laptop for $300.00 with the following specs:

Model: Razer Blade 14” (2017)

Processor: Intel Core i7-7700HQ

RAM: 16 GB (Soldered On)

Storage: 256 GB NVME SSD (User Replaceable, NVME M.2 only/No M.2 SATA Support)

I am selling the laptop without warranty or “as-is,” hence the seemingly low price. I would prefer the buyer to pick-up at a public location near my office in Mountain View, CA. The battery and SSD wear (via HWiNFO64) is as follows:

How was this laptop used?

It was heavily used from 2018-2020, for CAD and gaming (including VR). I initially purchased it as a mobile workstation towards the end of college. Even when brand new, the battery life was not particularly amazing. I recall it lasted maybe 2 hours at best through lectures running “light” loads like Chrome, Office, etc.

It was last used as a heavy, over-powered Chromebook by my partner. We’re getting rid of it partially because it’s really not the right tool for that job.

Why are you selling it?

Funny story. I spent about ~25% of 2019 on business trips and was wanting more gaming performance while on the road. After returning from my last business trip in January 2020, I purchased a better gaming laptop for future business trips.

As you might have guessed, those future trips never happened, but now I have a better laptop.

Can you benchmark the laptop?

Franky, I’d rather not. Here are some resources to get a sense of gaming and CAD performance:

Why is there a silver blob on the bottom of the laptop?

That is a blob of cured PFI-722 silver nanoparticle conductive ink accidentally applied at my last undergrad research gig.
