Is this worth the price?

Postby kate81 » Sat, 03 Dec 2011 8:58 pm

Guys, Suntec is actually having this Electronics & Furniture Christmas Gift Fair. I am really interested in getting one of the laptop after I saw the brochure online. However, I am very worry that the laptop is overprice. Asus K43 i5 Notebook at only $899? Seriously? Please advice.. Thank you:D

cannot read the advert, even when magnified, you need to blow it up!

The system specifications are important to understand a bargain or not! So you need to write everything its offering. Otherwise forget it!

also depends on what you need. you pay for what you get... and if its too slow, then you've wasted money no matter how good the price.

$899 for a laptop is not bad ift he specs are good, as ksl says, please give us the specs and we can tell you, otherwise, who knows, you may be buying an empty shell :S
