Lenovo has a bunch of new computers that will be available during and some after PC Show 2013 which will be held at Singapore Expo from 6th to 9th June 2013.

During Mother’s Day week last week, Barnes & Noble dropped their price for their Nook HD+ Tablet from US$269 (S$335) to US$179 (S$222.80) for their 16GB model. Of course I bought it since it is a OK price for that specification and I always wanted to play with an Android tablet.
Nook HD+ doesn’t come with camera, GPS or 3G capability. It uses microSD card as a storage expansion. It uses its own proprietary 30-pin charging cable and since Nook is not available in Singapore,it is advisable to get a spare charging cable in case you misplaced yours.
I was one of the early backers for OCDock (Kickstarter). I backed the project last year on the 4th December 2012 and the project got funded on 22nd December 2012 after raising US$107,979 despite the initial goal was only US$49,000.
The project was delayed by a few months, it was suppose to be shipping in January 2013 but I only got my last week on the 10th May 2013.
