Kenny's Top 12 picks from Comex 2022

By Kenny Yeo - 1 Sep 2022

Picks 7 to 12

7. TP-Link Deco M9 Plus

The Deco M9 Plus might have been around for a while now but it’s still one of the most cost-effective ways to expand Wi-Fi coverage at home. It’s a tri-band Wi-Fi 5 system that can support speeds of up to 400Mbps on its 2.4GHz network and 867Mbps each on two of its 5GHz network. What’s great about tri-band mesh systems is that they can use one of its 5GHz networks as a backhaul network which leaves the other 5GHz network free. A three-pack is going for S$349.

8. Razer Blade 15

If you love displays with ridiculously high refresh rates, you'll love the Blade 15. It’s available with a 360Hz Full-HD display. In this spec, it also gets a Core i7-12800H processor, 16GB of memory, a 1TB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti discrete graphics. It’s going for S$4,959 (U.P. S$4,799). There are other variants available with more powerful processors and graphics.


9. Acer Aspire 5

The Aspire 5 from Acer was one of the most affordable notebooks I could find that comes with a "proper" Intel Core processor. To start, it has a 15.6-inch Full HD display, a Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8GB of memory, a 512GB SSD, and even discrete graphics in the form of the NVIDIA GeForce MX450. It’s going for S$969 (U.P. S$1,098) and it comes with two years of warranty, a free carry bag, and 3 years of anti-virus subscription. There’s also the option to upgrade the memory to 16GB for S$99 and the storage to 1TB for S$130.


10. MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo

The Summit E13 Flip Evo is MSI’s convertible notebook and it weighs just 1.3kg. The base model features a 13.4-inch 120Hz Full-HD touchscreen display and comes with a Core i5-1240P processor, 16GB of memory, 1TB SSD, and Intel Iris Xe graphics. This is going for S$2,199 (U.P S$2,399). There’s a pricer variant which has a more powerful Core i7-1280 processor (all other specs the same) and that goes for S$2,499 (U.P. S$2,899).


11. Aftershock Lunar 14

The Lunar 14 is Aftershock’s ultraportable notebook. It weighs just 1.05kg and it comes with a 14-inch 90Hz 2.8K display. It also has a Core i7-12700H processor, 16GB of memory, a 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti 4GB discrete graphics. It’s going for S$2,099 (U.P. S$2,219).


12. Google Nest Wifi

Google’s Nest Wifi may longer be cutting-edge but it remains to be one of the easiest to use mesh networking systems you can buy. It's also small and relatively discreet. It’s a dual-band Wi-Fi 5 mesh networking system that supports speeds of up to 2,200Mbps. A two-pack is going for S$289 (U.P. S$428) and a three-pack is S$439 (U.P. S$627).
