It cost US$24.99 (S$31.63) and shipping to Singapore is an additional US$7 (S$8.85), and hence I paid a total of US$31.99 (S$40.49) for it. I ordered on 5th October 2011 but due to it being out of stock after I placed my order, I only received it on 24th October 2011.
Ordered the Bluelounge MiniDock (UK variant) from bluelounge.com for US$19.95 (~S$24.20). It was my first purchase over the website as the MiniDock is not yet sold in Singapore.
The shipping cost is about US$4.15 (~S$5) via USPS (First Class Mail International Parcels). This shipping method is the cheapest but it is delivered via normal mail when it reaches Singapore as it does not come with a tracking number. Also my box is a little bit damage, but at just S$5 for shipping, I can’t really complain much. My item was shipped on 20th August 2011 and I received it on 8th September 2011 (about 20 days).
This SpaceStation should complete my Bluelounge collection for the time being. I ordered Bluelounge MiniDock and Bluelounge Extra Connectors online and still waiting for it to arrive sometime in mid September. I have yet to order Bluelounge Kicks as I want to wait for my previous shipment to come first before deciding to order again.
So far I have only saw The Sanctuary selling at EpiCentre at Ion Orchard, I have not seen other shops carrying it yet. I think there is at least 5 of them there when I got it last week. They only carry the Black variant.
Cocoon has an interesting product which I would call it a bag organizer for gadgets, it is called Grid-It! They come in various sizes and colors to suit different bags and gadgets sizes. Prices range between US$10 to US$50.
Ever since then I have been checking out various branches of Epicentre, but all of them do not have the black color. I also saw it at DG Lifestyle Store at VivoCity but they do not have black as well. But I left my name with them and ask them to call me when they have re-stock for black color.
I passed my MacBook Pro 15″ to my brother and will be using my work MacBook Pro 15″ as my “official” laptop and hence I will need to bring it around from my work place back to home and vice versa and needed a bag to hold it.
I am using Fabrix Case‘s MacBook Pro sleeve previously but that sleeves requires one of my hand to hold on to it and since the MacBook Pro is so heavy, I can’t use the hand to hold other stuff while securing my MacBook Pro tight. So I decided to go for a proper working bag which can fit my MacBook Pro as well as some accessories.
I have been searching for a case to protect the back of my iPad 2 and it must work with Apple’s Smart Cover. I chanced upon this thread, Smart Cover Compatible Cases List, in MacRumors which came in handy.
I did some research myself and the availability of those covers in Singapore and I came to a conclusion that the SwitchEasy CoverBuddy is the most value for money and it will definitely be available in Singapore.
Fast forward 5 months later, the black color is back at EpiCentre@Ion Orchard and I just had to get it (there is also a white color available). It is retailing for S$139 (Member’s Price: S$125.10). I had pass down the Konnect SynCharger to my brother instead =p
