The IT show just started today. Laptop prices seem reasonable though not fantastic I must say.

Currently, aiming for Asus largely because of its 2 years warranty and the convenience of its service center in town. Anyone has any experience with Asus laptop?

Any other laptop to recommend? I am not too keen on Toshiba because of my brother's bad experience with his Toshiba laptop.

Get a Mac and you'll never turn back dude...

Jokes aside, I've been using a Mac for the past 2 years and have nothing but praises for it (mostly anyway...) ;p

Well, thats what most girls think what!
I bought my Fujitsu laptop 1 or 2 mths back. I wanted something light and flat, so that it will be easier for me to travel around with. I needed something fast and also lotsa space for me to store all my photos, so I upgraded the specs too. Now what I want is a portable hard disk, then I can have more storage space! ^_^ Anyway, I was thinking of Asus then. But decided to go with Fujitsu in the end.

Buy from Apple and if theres anything wrong with it, u can bring it down to the Apple store at Wheelock Place. Town area! ;p I'm not promoting hor, cos me not working there this time. But seriously Apple is good, if you are gonna use it for photo/video editing. Too bad I'm used to Windows, if not I will get a Mac, and not a Fujitsu.

You may check out the Acer notebook with Duo core processor with 2GB Ram and a Dedicated graphic card. I just bought it for a friend. You can contact this person if you interested 9139 5150. They have 0% installment option.

Opps forget.. I get it at $2499 paying by Nets.

Forget about the Powerbook seriously. I've had very bad experiences in my just over a year of owning the 15 inch Powerbook. Mainboard had to be replaced on 2 occasions, about 6 mths apart, and LCD had to be replaced once. I was VERY distressed during the down time. Lucky I bought .edu package so I had 3 years Applecare. Also I had lots of software issues. OS wise it's great, no viruses/spyware, but add the hardware failures and it just did not cut it for me.

So when my Powerbook got stolen last mth, I decided to jump back to Windows based machine, and deliberated between Fujitsu and Lenovo-IBM. Ended up with Fujitsu S7021 because there was a special offer on it (3 years warranty), plus it is one of the few laptops still genuinely Made in Japan. QC :thumbsup:, HOPEFULLY.

This being said, I think the Acer laptops are great value, but I just don't like the bent keyboard.

Fujitsu tablets not on display? I love my T4020, might not be bleeding edge but the design and usability is there. Upgraded from the T4010 within 6 mths as the price of the T4020 was cheaper than the orig price I paid for the T4010.

I'll say go for a tablet rather than a laptop. If you prefer something of a smaller form factor, wait for microsoft's origami devices. google it, there's lots of slick flash animations showcasing them
