Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch (Mid 2011)

When I first joined mig33 back on 1st February 2010, I got a brand new MacBook Pro 15″ (Mid 2009) running on Intel Core 2 Duo (2.66 GHz) and with 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM. Over the years, my MacBook Pro became slower and slower as applications get more and more intensive and OS gets more and more resource demanding.

I made a couple of “complains” to my immediate supervisor and eventually he approved my Purchase Order (PO) to get a new MacBook.

Alienware M14X Review

Got a chance to played with the Alienware M14X and my very first impression when I carried it home is it was so heavy (2.9kg)! But hey, it is Alienware, they make good gaming laptops which is not meant to be light in the first place.

The base model starts at S$1,899 with the following specifications:

HP Folio 13 Review

Had a chance to play with the HP Folio 13 for about a week and it was my first time playing with a Windows-based UltraBook. And I was pretty impressed. Normally when I get friends or family members who asked me to recommend an alternative to MacBook Air for Windows, I would always just ask them to buy MacBook Air and install Windows in it via BootCamp

But now, I have an alternative UltraBook to recommend to them which is the HP Folio 13. It is retailing for S$1,499 which is pretty affordable and very competitive to the 13″ MacBook Air which similar specifications is retailing for S$1,688.

Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011

I got my Timbuk2 bags when I was in San Francisco last December. One of my readers wrote in and asked a couple of questions regarding the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011. So I thought instead of replying him via email, I might as well share it with other readers whom might find it useful as well.

I bought the Timbuk2 Q Backpack 2011 (420d nylon gunmetal/blue/black) for US$99 which after 8.75% California after tax comes up to US$107.66 (S$134.18).

Bluelounge SpaceStation

Got the Bluelounge SpaceStation from Design Museum Shop located at Red Dot Traffic for S$127.35. I have not seen the SpaceStation sold elsewhere yet, if I do come across, I will update this post accordingly.

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.

Bluelounge Notebook Kit

The Bluelounge Notebook Kit can be bought from Design Museum Shop located at Red Dot Traffic for S$31.05.

I also saw the Notebook Kit being sold at EpiCentre at Ion Orchard for S$39 (after 10% member’s discount is S$35.10) which is slightly more expensive than Design Museum Shop. Challenger at IMM on the other hand is selling for S$29 (after 10% member’s discount is S$26.10) which is the cheapest among the three shops.

Apple MacBook Air 11 Inch (Late 2010)

My boss got the Apple MacBook Air 11.6″ from the US for one of our business partner . It is the 11.6″ with 64GB of SSD. Apple Singapore is selling it for S$1,488 while the US is selling for US$999.

As the MacBook Air does not belong to me, I did not power it on, only compared the size and weight of it to my iPad, Macbook Pro and my Asus EEE 1000HE.

Nokia Booklet 3G Mini Laptop Announced

Nokia has jumped onto the netbook bandwagon. I have no idea why it calls it a mini-laptop. For me, I classify all laptops that is powered by Atom processor a netbook. Initial specification looks delicious featuring 10″ glass screen, 3G connectivity, A-GPS and it only weights 1.25kg. To add, it is powered by Microsoft Windows.

Lets hope Singapore gets this!
