Low Yat Plaza (Malaysia IT mall)
Yep yep… i went to Low Yat Plaza in my trip. Low Yat Plaza is an IT mall in Kuala Lumpur… similar with IT malls in Singapore: Funan and Sim Lim Square. The price for the items there are very competitive because they are many shops to search for inside the mall.. Whereas as for Funan & Sim Lim Square, most of the shops offers the same standard price… the only difference, they give free items, such as mouse, thumbdrive, headphone..and etc..
I was there to compare the price for netbooks even though I have already bought an Acer Aspire 150. All these while i thought purchasing gadgets in singapore is cheaper than in Malaysia. But after the survey… I was wrong!!! Well… not a big difference though. The Acer Aspire 150 selling S$688 in Spore while RM1599 in Malaysia. So to convert S$688 X 2.35 = RM1,616. RM17 difference lehh…. Anyway, it is only a small difference…. if it is a big difference, i will be punching my heart. Even though it is cheaper in Malaysia, unfortunately, I have asked all shops… Acer Aspire 150 is out of stocks in the whole Low Yat Plaza. At least i felt better ehhh…… 😀
I did check for Lenovo, Asus, HP, LG,….selling for RM1699. I guess they have stocks as i they were being displayed. I chosen Acer because the internal specs as compared with the rest are the same.. the only difference is Acer have 6 cells battery (advantage) and 8 inch monitor screen (disadvantage) and the last is….. Acer reduced the price. Previously was selling S$799, now reduced to S$688.. without consider any further… i quickly confirmed to choose Acer and not the rest. If Acer did not reduce the price.. i will consider to purchase either Lenovo or Asus.
