2. BYD Atto 3
The Atto 3 was recently launched in Singapore and you can see and purchase it at Comex 2022. Its single electric motor generates around 200hp and 310nm of torque, which is enough to propel the Atto 3 from a standstill to 100km/h in around 7 seconds. The battery capacity is 60.5kWh and the claimed range is 480km. It’s going at a promo price of S$185,888 (inclusive COE). The list price is S$247,888. It will also come with 6 years of warranty and 6 months of free doorstep charging.

If you have high-speed fibre, this router features two 2.5Gbps Ethernet ports. It also has four Ethernet LAN ports, a USB-A USB 3.2 port, and another USB-A USB 2.0 port. It also has a host of gaming features that are supposed to help reduce latency. It’s going for S$659 (U.P. S$699).
4. ASUS TUF A15
The ASUS TUF A15 is one of the most affordable gaming notebooks you’d find at Comex. It’s available in various specifications but the entry-level one is good for gamers on a tight budget. For S$1,898 (U.P. S$2,498), you get a 15.6-inch 144Hz Full-HD display, Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, 16GB of memory, a 512GB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB discrete graphics.
5. Dell XPS 13 Plus
The Dell XPS 13 Plus made headlines earlier this year for its controversial keyboard. It has a “zero-lattice” design which gives up space in between individual keys in favour of larger keycaps. It also eschews physical function keys in favour of a row of capacitive buttons. It’s available at Comex with a 13.4-inch 3.5K OLED display, a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and a 1TB SSD. It’s going for S$2,789 (U.P. S$3,099).
