IT Show 2008 Hoot

Seems that everyone is buying things at the IT Show 008 except my brother and I.

Mom:

  1. Western Digital Passport 250GB, S$179.99
  2. Canon PIXMA MX700, S$399

Uncle Raymond:

  1. Canon IXUS 860 IS, S$599

Cousin Peggy:

  1. Asus F8Sn Laptop, S$2550
  2. Canon IXUS 860 IS, S$599

Wayne:

  1. Asus Laptop – F8Sn, S$2550

For the Canon IXUS 860 IS, the fee gifts include: 1x 4GB SD Card, 2x 2GB SD Card, Digital Kit Bag, Case and 23-in-1 Card Reader.

For the Canon PIXMA MX700, the free gifts include: Targus Backpack, Trolley, USB Cable.

For the Western Digital Passport 250GB, the free gift is only 1 pouch for the harddisk.

For the Asus F8Sn Laptop, the original price is S$2598, BUT you have to pay by cash (if I am not wrong) to get the price. If you are using NETS you have to pay 1.8% extra or credit cards 2.0% extra. I think that is deceiving the consumers (IT Show is not Sim Lim Square) as it is NOT written in the brochure at all. They should not pass the surcharge to the consumer at all. But apparently, Wayne and my cousin Peggy bought the 2 laptops together and hence they waive the credit card charges as well as give them additional S$48.00 discount.

PC Show 2008
The next IT fair will be PC Show 2008 and it is happening from 12th June 2008 to 15th June 2008 at Suntec City, Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre (Level 3, 4 and 6). Opening hours are from 12pm to 9pm.

That is the time for me to hoot my Dell 2408WFP Monitor, Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers and perhaps a keyboard and mouse set. WOOT.
