Sim Lim Price for Toshiba Laptop

Postby sonu » Mon, 26 Jul 2004 7:05 pm

I'm visiting singapore & will be there for a week. Can anybody recomend a best place to buy a Toshiba laptop? Sim Lim is recomended by some. Any particular shop there? Any email id through which i can order the product & make sure it is available at the time of my visit. I'm looking for Toshiba Tecra S1.

Thank u in advance

Hi,
you can go to www.hardwarezone.com.sg
you do a search there. should be able to get some prices.
Or you can download price list of the shops there (mostly from Sim Lim Square). my advice is don book through the phone, they will slaughter you. and rem to get your GST (tax refund of 5%)

simlim is good place but u have to see the other place and compare the price....
i'm a laptop dealer and will be in malaysia and also singapore..
i think u better purchase in malaysia itself.

Anyway, I've got some ideas here :)

well just found a great singapore site
www.googoo.com.sg

Prices of components pretty much as Sim Lim and they build and test it for you. Plus they deliver it to your door.

Recently bought a PC case off them and there was a problem with a fan. they came round and fixed it next day even thou that service is normally reserved for complete PC's that they've built.

At the very least it would give overseas guys a good indication of PC component prices here

Good luck

No thanks to that website. No ix Intel processors. 1 GB memory on average. Windows Vista??? 120 GB disk? Waaaayyyy behind the times... and the prices are not very good, either.

What?

Youre kiddin right or talking from ones derriere.

And as for that spec you made up. Did you not go to the configure page

Have you actually looked at the prices. Where to get better online ?

From the array of CPU's, coolers, casings, PSU etc etc they are the same as at Sim Lim. GO to hardware zone and download the price lists to check :D

Straight off their website. Now, I pop over to Dell.sg and look at an Inspirion. With a t4400 processor (2.2 GHz), 320 gig drive, 2 gig memory, and Windows 7 premium it costs S$999.

Or, move into the Studio series. With 2.4 GHz i5 processor, Windows 7 Home, 4 gig memory, 500 gig hard drive, DVD RW, 512 MB ATI graphics, and a lot more for S$1,599.
