Comex 2007: The Full Monty!

Acer and Apple Booths

Comex 2007 Commences!

When the folks responsible for bringing COMEX told us that COMEX 2007 will be bigger and much better than previous years, they sure weren't joking. Unlike other annual local IT bazaars, all the major brands, including small ones, are all out in full attendance at COMEX 2007. Forget about going anywhere else in Singapore to splurge on IT and consumer lifestyle products because you'll not find a better venue that has every brand under one roof and at discounted rates other than COMEX 2007. On that same note, you can also forget about going anywhere else to see what's going on at COMEX 2007 other than here at www.hardwarezone.com. We do the walking while you do smart shopping, right in front of your computer, and if you're our DMCard member, you'll enjoy exclusive access to all the flyers of COMEX 2007 .

Acer's Booth

 Acer has many notebooks and LCDs on sale that should be popular with students and the likes.

 Its design will surely be a hit with students and so is its price of just $1,198. Acer is throwing in a 1GB RAM upgrade free into this notebook that has an AMD Turion 64 MK-38 processor (2.2GHz) with 80GB HDD, DVD-Super Multi Double Layer Drive, GeForce 7000M graphics and genuine Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic.

 One popular model that's selling fast is the Acer Aspire 4710-3A1G16Mi that's going for $1598. This is a faster and more equipped notebook than the Aspire 5710, sporting an Intel Core 2 Duo processor T5450 (1.66GHz with 2MB L2 cache and Intel EM64T), 1GB DDR2 RAM, 160GB HDD, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, a 5-in-1 card reader, Dolby Certified Surround Sound System and Windows Vista Home Premium. If you have a slightly fatter budget, this is the Aspire notebook to buy.

 Taking performance up several notches is the Aspire 5920G-302G16N notebook.

 For those looking for a desktop computer with a very small footprint and performance of Intel Core 2 Duo technology, the Acer Mini PC is one for your consideration. It measures just 25cm tall and 6cm thick, and Acer is providing up to $300 instant cash off and a 2GB SD card (for UOB card members only). There are three versions on sale with prices starting from $1,199 to $1,799.

 The Acer Aspire M5630 tops Acer's multimedia PC category by featuring an Intel Core 2 Quad processor Q6600 (2.4GHz with 8MB L2 cache).

 Priced at $2048 for the 20 inch 2.0GHz model, the new iMac has an option to upgrade to the 2GB RAM at $88 with free Microsoft Office STE and cleaning kit. Definitely worth looking out for.
