Today is the time of the year again. Where many shops/company setup booth in KL Convention Center. Where some techie went for bargain. Others, something else. Yup it is PC Fair. And every year I go down. And every year, I bought nothing, and no pictures.
Basically PC Fair is always like the same old stuff. But occasionally we might have some interesting stuff there.
In today case, it is touch screen computer and netbooks. It seems most major laptop vendor in Malaysia produce some form of netbook. HP have one, dell have one, now even Fujitsu produce one.
Most of netbooks is around RM1500 range. But of course there is some touch screen version. That is around, RM2000-RM3000. Fujitsu Shows off their U2010(or was it a U1010), which is RM3600(I think). Either way, it comes with touch screen, which is interesting. And Gigabyte have their m704, which is also RM3000.
What i really like, it is small, and the best part is that, it is touch screen, but one thing is, I am wondering whether these guys works with linux. Seems that the Fujitsu machine is working(from forum anyway). The gigabyte machine not much, mostly because of their VX700 graphics unit. But it is also a tad expensive. So I probably stick with eeepc for now.
Other interesting offering is, software, and GPS. Kingsoft have their office suites, which I am wondering whether people actually bought it. And it seems that there is many people selling Kapersky. Which is interesting, and finally GPS got cheaper, and more mainstream.
Otherwise, it is the same old same old. I still think it is crazy to host PC fair at this time, people don’t have their salary in yet.
