FunAN IT-Mall etc - do they have MOST STUFF in stock?

Postby WarOrc » Tue, 11 May 2004 1:06 am

Hi,

I've been recommended to goto FunAn IT-Mall when visiting Singapore. I was looking to get a "pretty advanced" notebook and that it was the place to go.

I was wondering this. Just passing through - can I most likely pickup a nice notebook-pc there or is it like most other places where you have to place an order and wait about a week for it to arrive?

Reason I'm asking is - I wasn't planning on staying long in Singapore this time around.

Very happy for any help/advice or previous experience you would share with me regarding this!

Thanks,

Orc

The bigger stores like Challenger on the top floor should have basic models in stock and/or the ability to simple customizations (more memory etc) on the spot. But since you want something kitted-out and top of the line it may be more difficult...

Give this a spin in your browser, then see what they can do for you: http://www.challenger.com.sg/

Note: Not the cheapest store in Singapore, but the ease of selection and low likelihood of getting ripped off make up for it.

Just in case you wanted to know. at funan, prices are at $200 - $300 profit.. Dont believe when they say it's cost price. I ever made them embarrassed for lying.

At Sim Lim, prices are much cheaper than Funan, yet at over $100-$200 profit.. I'm a frequent R&D in these 2 areas. I manage to get my Sony P73 at $390 with the whole package.. and that's when they earn profit.. But make a trip down and if you dont know how to defend yourself, you'll see them say, Sorry under cost price.

all the best in your shopping.
