IT Show 2007 - The Full Coverage

After four long months since the last fair and two major holiday seasons (namely Christmas + New Year and Chinese New Year), the IT Show is a highly anticipated event where many are awaiting to feast themselves on what this fresh year has to offer for their upgrading spree. And most certainly, IT Show 2007, Singapore's largest IT, digital and consumer electronics exhibition is expected to deliver this as it spans three levels of the Suntec City Exhibition Center offering an exceptionally wide array of products for everyone's needs. Opened daily from 12 noon to 9pm from the 8th to the 11th March, read on to see what's in store for you as we scoured the entire exhibition to bring you this full coverage.

 Utilitarian looking, this Aspire 5572AWXMi uses an Intel Core Duo T2250 processor and comes with 1GB of memory and a 120GB hard drive. As with many Acer products, the lure is in its attractively low price of $1658.

 If you're looking for a budget Intel Core 2 Duo based notebook, the Aspire 5583WXMi is a decent choice given its competitive pricing of $1798.

 Yes, for $1398, you'll get to experience Windows Vista Home Premium on a budget notebook like the Aspire 5612ZWLMi, which uses a dual-core Intel T2060 processor along with 1GB of system memory and a 80GB hard drive. Just about adequate for students and other less demanding users.

 $399 for a 20-inch LCD was unthinkable not too long ago but with the trend favoring widescreen LCDs, the prices of 4:3 monitors like this has fallen to more affordable levels.

 Acer's largest widescreen LCD offering is this 22-inch 5ms display. Only 10 sets are available for the special low price of $499 and Acer will throw in a free (token) USB fan. It's quite a good deal considering this LCD is priced at $549 usually.

 Despite its slim form factor, the Aspire Mini PC can be configured with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM and a 320GB SATA hard drive. The only downside is that it comes with onboard graphics. You do get a 19-inch LCD monitor and free gifts like a 2GB SD card and speakers. The price - $1999.

 The MP3 Game Player from Active Foto is a pretty funky device that can play movies, MP3 files and even run emulated games. The 512MB and 1GB version goes for S$115 and $135 respectively.

 We could hardly tell the difference between the MP4 player and a very similar offering from Apple. Even the packaging was identical. The 1GB and 2GB versions go for S$99 and S$119 respectively.

 Row after row of computer memory sticks going for great prices are neatly laid outside Active Foto's booth (6271).
