We bought a Asus F8Sg laptop from South Asia Computer at Funan for my dad.

At the moment, he is using his friend’s laptop to Skype with us and hence he is constrain by the timing and duration of each Skype call. Since there is wireless Internet in his apartment and even better still the wireless access point is installed in his room. We think it would be better to have his own laptop and hence we got 1 for him.

The original price is S$1,899.90 and since we are paying by cash, we manage to bargain till S$1,850. The free gift is one black 160GB Western Digital Passport Portable Hard Disk Drive worth about S$120.
