On what tests to drive, to understand that the machine alive?

Everest of course will look at what iron is, what else would you recommend?


The seller says that the netbook six months and just gave it to them for the debts.

At the same as when buying any equipment:
-the presence of chips\\scratches, particularly denting. If the laptop has been dropped I wouldn't buy it.
-the presence of dead pixels or other screen defects
-the configuration stated by the seller
-battery life (or Everest, or just switch on, measure how much is left %, spend all other assessment manipulation, it will take at least ten to fifteen minutes, and see how the battery). For netbook battery life one of the most important parameters.
-check the operation of all buttons
-check the operation of the periphery where you will be able to: webcam, card reader, usb ports and headphone Jack
-in case of any defects feel free to haggle if the seller quickly and easily make concessions: cheerleaders and look carefully
-listen to the inner voice. He is not lying :-)

1) on the state of the corps
2) the netbook is supposed to be quiet — if noise is louder than usual — so dropped
3) if hdd on bad blocks, if an ssd on on the deterioration of the cells.
Suggest will boot into Ubuntu and run the test smarctl — it can be a lot interesting to tell about the hdd
4) worn batteries. The capacity from the nominal one. Can also be more or less exactly to look Ubuntu.
5) need peripherals. I now the camera is not needed — never check. Recently with surprise found out that on the new laptop I have Ubuntu defined and working)
6) power on USB ports check — eeepc over time, manifests a defect with power to the usb. If a USB flash drive or mouse ports pull, to charge from these ports or to connect an external HDD larger and more abruptly is not obtained. He ran with it on his netbook (2 years).
7) check out how sit firmly in place all ports, especially menegaki — your I shredded very quickly and efficiently, then year. Glued, soldered, glued, brazed... and the contents of the port pulls together with headphones.

I would like to draw attention to the SSD (if there is) in particular is special. programs to diagnose your SSD supports S. M. A. R. T. — for example under Intel — Intel SSD Toolbox. The app requires .NET to work. And on eee701 4Gb SSD is so sad that does not support SMART at all if that.

Suggest you look to the screws and stickers, which they closed. It can tell whether it was opened netbook.
