Great time Shopping at PC Fair yesterday

We had a swell time checking out stuff at PC Fair yesterday.

Crowd was not as jam packed as a year ago (Where the sea of crowd did not move). This time we could walk around leisurely and still feel the air cond. … which is a big blessing compared to PWTC.

Tiff and I went hunting for a Scanner, a Laser Mouse & a Notebook.

Canon had a huge booth at the Grand Ballroom (Level 3 of KLCC), and we the Canon Scanner they featured was the Cano Scan 3000 ex. They were offering it on the Flyer at RM336, and they were willing to drop it to RM299.

After walking around a lot, we found a retailer downstairs (Ground Level) who was offering the same Cano Scan 3000 ex for only RM210!! BOUGHT IT!! 🙂

Canon Cano Scan 3000ex

 Features

High optical resolution of 1200 X 2400 dpi scans photos and documents with superb clarity and details.

We felt it was a good buy as it was a hundred off the publish price. 🙂

The other good thing that we encountered was that we managed to trade in our very old Palms at PC Fair. We traded in our Palm Tungsten T and Palm M515 for a total of RM150! (Mind u they only paid RM30 for the M515).

So with the additional surplus of cash, we bought a new mouse for our home PC. We thot we would try the new Laser Mouse (which they claim was better than the Optical Mouse). Still unpacked, so left to be seen. We didnt wanna go for the high range ones (Logitech was selling one at RM75, we took a no-brand laser mouse at RM36).

Finally, the final hunt took us the longest. We visited Toshiba, Dell and FTEC. We decided to give the rest a go, cos we had a limited budget and wanted to get a decent notebook within the RM2000 range!

We finally ended up (after long long discussions with different sales people at different booths) with a Toshiba Satellite M100 – 1011E notebook. Its a pretty decent notebook with pretty up to date specs, not the best in the world (considering our 2K budget), but i guess decent enuf for mobility and for Tiff’s ministry and research.

Check out the Specs (The 2 Years warranty was a Plus!)
