"more cheap" to buy when compare with where?

goto www.hardwarezone.com to get a rough idea of the prices.

That's a good one. I bought my Toshiba a few months ago in Hong Kong about 1/3 the price lower than here.

The prices here are ok. Lots of brands & models for choice.

By the way, I think more cheap should be cheaper. :)

Here's my 5 cents worth. I don't know about HK or other countries but in Singapore, most shops offer additional warranties (for a small payment) on top of the manufacturer's 1 year warranty. Try Best Denki or Harvey Norman. It is an invaluable feature for electronic goods. Even enhance the resale value if you decide to sell it later.

Hi, I'm not really getting your ideas in these sentences. Are they English idioms? :)

Yes. You have to admit it IS an Expat oriented forum (see the banner at the top of the page?) with English being the primary language.
