Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Collector’s Edition

· · · Gaming

I bought the Diablo III: Collector’s Edition back in May 2012 and about 2 years later, it is time for the expansion!

Pre-ordered my copy of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls: Collector’s Edition from Amazon on the 1st February 2014, it was shipped on the 25th March 2014 (the official release date) and I got it on the 10th April 2014.

The game itself cost USD$79.99 (SGD$102) and shipping (normal) cost USD$9.98 (SGD$12.60). Paid a total of USD$89.97 (SGD$114) for it. I should have gotten it in Singapore because it is retailing for SGD$99.99 only!

The Collector’s Edition contains the following items:

  • Diablo III Reaper of Souls PC/Mac Game
  • Exclusive In-Game Content
    • Diablo III Spectral Hound Minion & Aesthetic Artifacts
    • World of Warcraft: Treasure Goblin Pet
    • Starcraft II: Crusader Portraits & Malthael Decals
  • Behind The Scenes DVD and Blu-Ray Two-Disc Set
  • The Art of Reaper of Souls
  • Reaper of Souls Soundtrack on CD
  • Malthael Mouse Pad

This time round, there is no USB flash drive =(

Fabrix Laptop Carrier Bag

Fabrix has just launched their new Laptop Carrier Bag which is retailing for USD$70 (SGD$88). There are five designs available:

For each of the five designs available, you can choose from two sizes for your laptop, 13″ or 15″. I was contemplating between the Midnight Herringbone and Whiskey Herringbone, and I chose 13″ Midnight Herringbone in the end as I like dark blue!

Fabrix Laptop Carrier Bag has a very slim profile and does not add much bulk or weight to your laptop. The bag itself weighs less than 200g despite having a padded interior, leather handles and industrial grade snap button closure! The bag should go well with formal or smart casual dressing.

I am a huge fan of Fabrix and have quite a few pouches/bags/sleeves from them over the years and they are still going strong! In case you didn’t know, Fabrix products are made and crafted in Singapore!

Do checkout their social profiles: Fabrix on Twitter, MadebyFabrix on Instagram and MadebyFabrix on Facebook.

Snugg Microsoft Surface 2 Sleeve

After getting my Microsoft Surface 2, I was looking for a sleeve to protect it and that is when Snugg contacted me to see if I am interested in reviewing any sleeves on their website. I am not really interested in iPad sleeves because I have already a few and hence I chose the Snugg Microsoft Surface 2 Sleeve!

The sleeve is available in seven different colors (Black, Distressed Brown, Cyan, Magenta, Purple and Red) and is retailing for USD$29.99 (SGD$38). In case you are wondering, I chose the Distressed Brown color.

On the outside, the sleeve is made of mottled brown bicast leather and on the inside it is made of nubuck fibre. Because of the materials used, the sleeve has a premium feeling to it. The nubuck fibre also acts as a screen cleaner when you slot-in or remove your Surface 2 from the sleeve.

At the back of the sleeve, there is a large pocket for you to hold your notebook or mobile phone. But unfortunately the Surface 2 adapter will not be able to fit into the pocket. It will also not fit an A4-size paper, you need to fold the A4-size paper into half for it to fit.

Microsoft Surface 2

· · · Gadget

Microsoft Surface 2 was launched last month and thanks to Ian, the media is able to purchase it at a media discount. The retail price of a Surface 2 is SGD$618 for 32GB and SGD$748 for 64GB. I bought the 32GB version.

I bought the Microsoft Surface 2 because I wanted to have a Windows tablet to complete the “family” since I have an Apple iPad Air and Google Nexus 7.

Been using it for a few weeks and I love the slightly bigger screen as compared to the iPad Air. Everything is pretty snappy with the NVIDIA Tegra 4 1.7GHz quad core processor and 2GB of RAM.

Because there is no LTE variant of the Surface 2 in Singapore, this is pretty much a stay-home device. Oh and there is Plex App for Windows which cost USD$5.99 that allows you to stream movies/tv shows from your Plex server!

I don’t really use Microsoft Office much these days but Windows RT 8.1 comes with Microsoft Office 2013 RT versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook.

Remember to update to Windows 8.1 Update the moment you get your Surface 2 as the update is out!
