Update On Laptop Shopping 😛
After one round of shopping @ Sim Lim, much reading and comparison of online reviews and forums, these are the ‘candidates’ aka shortlisted models
1. Toshiba Portege M800
2. Asus F9Sg
3. Acer Aspire 2920 / Acer Travelmate 6292
4. Lenovo Thinkpad X61
** No photos for Acer and Lenovo models due to problems trying to fit them into the entry. I have also decided to eliminate DELL from the consideration list after reading reviews (not so positive on battery life and durability of machine itself).
Aesthics and specifications wise, Asus is definitely my pick however based on reviews that I have read, there are some concerns about battery life (very impt when the laptop is to be used for client presentation). Right now, Acer & Toshiba seems to be a very good value for money option (am offered a very good price for the Toshiba model).
Am targetting to come to a decision by Friday!
