The best thing is I can found (for me at least) are:
- HDD prices is falling down like the old days
500GB 2.5" HDD price is $79
2TB 3.5" HDD is $149
- 4GB DDR3 RAM crucial: $22
Both are on 6th floor

And for those renewing your starhub broadband, they got promotion for MaxOnline Express, Free Nexus 7.

Here's my indirect contribution (though I don't qualify anyway):-

1) WD 1TB portable HDD for just $99

2) Toshiba AT270, 7.7-inch AMOLED display based tablet; supposedly the thinnest! It's expensive but it looks sweet - for now.

Non-tech related....

3) Suntec parking sucks big time!! Basement 2 is never open for public; for major events, Basement 1 alone isn't enough. Some planning they've got for a convention center Just head anywhere else but Suntec - don't even think about trying.

4) And the most annoying aspect of the show are.... Credit Card Companies!! They are simply horrible and they are everywhere; and I mean EVERYWHERE - there's nowhere to hide, much less run. Good luck trying to avoid them.

My finding:
Even HWZ and CNET Asia can publish misleading (wrong) info




After efforts spent braving through an hour traffic jam and going to both HN (Level 6) and NB (Level 4) booths, both confirmed that S4A (II) is not available for sale in COMEX, at all.

Unfortunately, we're at the mercy of the information given to us. Do note that for advanced coverage, it means we've to rely on info passed down to us.

However the complexity of managing and handling the show for these retailers means that there are times when what the brands hope to push at the show, does not match what's actually on retail due to logistics or other unforeseen matters.

We do check out the on-site offers but we can't possibly check for every item they've shared with us. Heck, even the brochures aren't 100% accurate since even those could be outdated and can't factor changes that occur in the last minute.

Sorry to hear that you found one of the downsides of the show. (So technically, while the info you pointed could be wrong, it's actually the fault of the vendors.) We'll rectify this later today - thanks for pointing out and notifying others too!

Answer to Parking: Marina Square Seems like the right place if you don't mind the walk after shopping for your IT Products

And for the CC Companies One word for them : I'm bankrupt, Could i still Sign and Take up a Loan too? (Always Works)

Double darn
Totally understand your feelings.
I've dropped them a mail to verify their given info; not sure if perhaps the stock is coming in later or something.
