PRESS COP
 
Things that I love the most is shopping for computers n its gadget...it is much fun than looking for wardrobe collection....

Just yesterday, my sister n I went hunting for a netbook. Not for me though, but my sister. Her budget is RM 1.5k...i insist her buying a netbook with 6 cell as it will last longer than 3 cell, so she can be found endlessly netting everywhere n anywhere her heart desires. Let me share you with our plan n strategy.

First...get a review from the net on the netbook you want...compare the reviews among the top rated netbook (in my case)...choose a few selection that meet your requirements n budget. My personal favorite brand is HP, DELL, Compact n Fujitsu. Why? Well, I just believe their brands based on its QC standard n customer service track record. I strongly suggets you NOT to purchase ACER brand. They have low quality material n its cs sucks...You want to believe me on this...coz i own one not long ago.

Second....get to Low Yat (IT shopping heaven...it can be anywhere else u want) as early as possible...even before the shop opens. You have all the time in that day to survey almost all the shop, the shop assistants are in the mood to entertain your long list of questions, you have time to compare the prices n netbook models throughout you break time in this wonderful kopitiam (located on your right when you go down the escalator...not white coffee kopitiam) and you can collect valuable info from various sales man (and you can know, who is giving u crap info). The basic type of question u might want to ask is:
1) Price
2) The processor (Atom is the ONE for netbook) type n its speed (at least 1.66 Ghz)
3) HD and RAM size (the bigger the better)
4) Battery type (3, 6 or 9 cells) and its working lifespan
5) Customer service efficeiency

Compare the info you get from one sales person to another. You might find that some are not knowledgable enough on the products and yet givin you crap stories...so beware!

Third...After deciding on the model that you want to buy. GO to the BRAND retail shop to avoid being swindle by ruthless and greedy seller. This way, you really sure the product you purchase is original and authentic. Or you can just buy from any nice salesman who spend lot of his time patiently explaining the world of IT to you but ENSURE that:
1) Request the sales person to show you the packaging box. The packaging box given to you should NOT BE TAMPERED. It should be seal tightly as the manufacturer can to ensure no items in the box went missing (guess by who??)
2) Ask the sales person to show you the serial no in the computer system is equivalent to the serial no labeled on the packaging box. It should match (duh!!)
3) Check all the OS, recovery and else are given...usually the CD is customised for the BRAND. DO NOT ACCEPT burned CD and other crap given.
4) Last but not least, check if the charger n manual are in place.

And at last...pay up and GET THE RECEIPT...you never know when you might need it...

After carefully writing this procedure for you...there is only last thing for me to say...CUSTOMER R ALWAYS RIGHT...
