PIKOM PC Fair 2008 at PISA, Penang

PIKOM PC Fair 2008 at PISA, Penang

36

PIKOM PC Fair 2008 is held at several places in Malaysia. The one that I visited is located at PISA, Penang. Wow… PIKOM PC Fair… The last time I visited PIKOM PC Fair at PISA, Penang was back in 4 or 5 years back. Why I did not visit PIKOM PC Fair lately? I was cheated by Mega Online on the last visit. The price given at PC Fair is more expensive than normal period. Besides, there was nothing special to see at PIKOM PC Fair at PISA, Penang. I long to visit PIKOM PC Fair at Kuala Lumpur. It is bigger and has a lot of stuffs to see. :P However, this visit changed my mind… How? Why? What?

Come on, let’s go in…

There are a lot of stores and people in this PC Fair. More and more people are coming… The crowd is smaller at Friday as many of us are still working that day. The waves of people are getting more and more at Saturday and Sunday. Especially on Sunday evening when the PC Fair is going to finish. Most of us will wait the shop owners to lower their product price on that time. The price will drop like crazy. :D

What I do over there? I did not have anything in mind to see except Canon EOS 450D SLR camera. After wondering the whole PC Fair, I was disappointed as I could not find any Canon SLR camera there. I saw Nikon, Olympus and Sony SLR camera but not from Canon. Come on, Canon… As your supporter, I am ashamed. Besides looking for SLR camera, I also looking for pretty girls. Too bad that I did not manage to get much shots. :P

Dear dear also busy promoting her i-City voucher

Most of the promoters and sales are still students that studying at college or university. Their daily salary is ranging from RM60 to RM150. Some with commission and some don’t. Luckily, not all the customers are like me. Why? I seldom buy stuff from PC Fair as I can get lower price than PC Fair usually. I have my own personal PC supplier. And I will find online for better price too. EBay, Amazon, B&H provide a lot of cheap stuffs. ;)

I could not stand the loud sound. :(

Finally, I found what I want to see – Garmin nüvi 200W GPS. Wow… It is priced at RM1399 with 1 GB SD card. That is very expensive. US is selling for around USD220-250 (RM715-813) with shipping. Luckily, I managed to get one of my colleagues to buy for me. :D

Lastly, I found another stuff that stops my steps. Apple MacBook Air – the world thinnest notebook. I love it very much. But… Ahem… I need to sell my whole SLR camera kits in order to buy it. RM6299 to RM11,000 for a notebook? He… He… I will pass it. :P

Intel spent a lot of advertising at this PIKOM PC Fair at PISA, Penang. You can see a lot of people getting Intel bag and Intel has a SMS free gift too. Intel should spend less marketing spending and pay more salary to its employee like me. :P Everyone should know Intel already. Why pay more?

    Nuvi 200w is so cheap in the US? Can it be used locally if we load local maps?

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Kitkat, ya lo… :(

    Bernie, cheap… Cheap… Cheap… Some of my colleagues are using it right now. No problem with Penang even Kulim. Hopefully, mine will arrive soon. But on the highest price – RM813. :D

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Wow… Car park? This is interesting. :D

    OK, great news that Garmin is working in Malaysia. I’ve had friends that bought a GPS in the US only to not have it work back here. But I’m sure it wasn’t Garmin. Maybe I’ll borrow his to see if I can load local maps in to it.

    My girlfriend is going to the US, maybe I’ll ask her to fetch one back.

    Bernie, :( I missed the chance to buy it even with highest price range. That fellow back to Malaysia already. But I got another target that going back to Malaysia on June. Will ask her to help me then. :)

    Royce, don’t know. Need to refer to PIKOM.

    Alex, how much he got? With Kits? For me, I will upgrade to 40D from 400D. Not from 400D to 450D.

    while i saw maxis booth there, just pity all those people who subscribe that days. become another victim like me…

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    He… He… No need to worry. There are really less people subscribe to it. :P

    nowdays I seldom go to PC fair mainly because as Jayce says I also have my own supplier which gives me lower price but I still go in hope to see new things, special item and lastly girls.. he.. he.. in fact this pc fair I went with big hope on buying some items which is on my lists but the moment I step inside I became blurr..
    This time I believe the trend is broadband (mobile), 70% of the brochures I collected are about either celcom / maxis. I really pissed with some of the sales persons who promoted maxis saying in sg petani area 3G is no problem (hey.. SP is still not officially 3G area in their website) and they never mention on the contract and the 3GB limit (not unlimited). Pls. don’t treat us like small kids la.. in fact I’m using 012 no, so I know la…
    Btw, they should have organized the booth according to sections (eg. the sound sections), easier for us to go around.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    He… He… Both of us have own PC supplier huh? :P

    Intel counter in Miir (18/4) seem not many people crowd, most people looking for Acer laptop, especially the one at RM1,999 (Window Vista Home Basic, 1GB Ram, 120GB HD, Pentium 1.73, 14.1” display screen, but forget the model), which with free optical mouse, 2GB pendrive, screen cleaner, cooler pack, and software (enable pc read ur face as password to log in). I bought one too.
    Ya window vista stable or not? the graphic is nicer.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    Some of us bought HP notebook that come with Shell Citibank Credit Card promotion. It is much cheaper than the notebook in PC Fair. :P
    Windows Vista is good at outlook but bad in performance. It requires a lot of hardware resources. :(
