Went to the PC Show today with Weiting and Jian Jie. This year, it is held at Suntec City instead of the usual Singapore Expo. Interestingly, according to The Straits Times, the expo hall in Suntec is bigger (10,600 sq ft) than Singapore Expo (10,000 sq ft). Always thought that Singapore Expo has a bigger area than Suntec… Also, the exposition is only confined to the sixth floor, as compared to the previous IT Show which was held on the fourth and sixth floor.
Anyway, reached Suntec at around half past noon. The crowd there was still bearable. Weiting was hunting for a digital camera, so I accompanied him around the hall looking at cameras. Quite a few nice looking show girls giving out pamplets and together with interesting stuff to look at, it was quite hard to concentrate and either of them 😛
Went down for lunch at around 1pm and when we went up after that, the crowd was significantly larger. Continued to "look-see" and I bought a laser printer when we were about to leave. The laser printer I bought is a Brother HL-2040 which is selling at $178 with a free trolley, toner and USB cable. Was suppose to get a USB cable but I think they left it out… Anyway, a USB cable is quite cheap as compared to a toner which they didn't leave out. 😀
A pretty good printer I should say. Very fast warm up and the printout is also fast and clear. According to online reviews, the toner also last quite a long time and 300dpi and toner save mode. Together with the free toner, I think it'll last me a long time 😉
