I have a friend who’s leaving Taiwan… TOMORROW! He wants to get a laptop TODAY that’s small and convenient to carry as he’s going to be traveling a lot.
Do you have any advice based on portability, reliability, features, and support?
Which brands are licensed to install English windows? Acer and …?
Any recommendations on a store that has a special or that is helpful and friendly?
I wonder if any of the chain stores (like the Tsan Keun 3C big yellow stores) have stores in Hong Kong or China…
I just told him that I thought it’d be a good idea to get a big name as it will be easier to get serviced… btw, I think that he will be in Hong Kong or China.
I have a Benq Joybook 8000 and know that they are sold in Europe, but don’t know where else besides here in Taiwan. It’s got nice features (4 USB2, 2 Firewire, DVD/CDRW combo, P1.8 mobile), but it’s definitely too big (think it’s rated as a 15" display). The service has been good - had a problem and they replaced the display in one day (2 year warranty).
