TABLET VS PC


Recommended Posts

Couple of months ago laptop had to go in for repairs.

 

Rigged Acer 10" with mini Bluetooth keyboard from IPad case - $15 @ BB&B - and mini-mouse, sorry Mickey. Find I now use tablet almost exclusively for everything, texting, email, web browsing, except word processing (no cut / paste) and CAD work.

 

Like that I can take it with me where ever I am in house. WiFi capable so makes for some interesting SKYPE video chats. They seem to love when they see me

 

 

really cooking - gotta ya.

 

Anyone else?

 

Just picked up an HP 17.3", 8 gig ram x 750 gig memory laptop at K-Mart for $486.39 (19,500P?) total with tax. Anyone know what it would cost about there?post-15177-0-24351600-1381096372_thumb.jpg

I don't usually buy the latest of any electronics. Very older versions typically 25 to 40% cheaper.

 

Latest version of this PC is about $750 depending on where you buy it.

I would say P30,000 - P35,000, more if it's a quad core. My friend paid about P42,000 for 14" LED, with a terabyte HD, quad core Samsung. Many times you don't even get software with a new computer here unless you pay extra.

 

A desktop PC would be less, with similar configuration.

 

You can get a decent net-book though for P12,000 and adequate notebook for around P20,000.

I have read that electronics can be somewhat expensive and hard to find.

 

I'll be bringing all my toys with me.

 

Just picked up a 220V to 100V 1600 watt converter for $1.50 (60P) at Goodwill and a 5,200 Mah dual amp USB rechargeable battery from Office Max for 400P

 

Also will bring maybe 6 MP3 players as gifts. 4 Gig Apple shuffle knockoff (550P each with charger)
