New Camera

The man is thinking of replacing our old Canon.. before it dies on us.. with his airmiles. What color would you choose..??

If i was using it alone.. i’ll choose this of course.

Sony Vaio Pink

Don’t you just love the pink color of the Sony Vaio…?? I do..!! and now you can get it at NCIX for only $999. I’ve heard good and bad things about the Sony Vaio.. but what i liked about it most is the size and the weight of it. Measuring less than 1″ thick… now that is awesome eh.

It comes with a Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 (2.10 Ghz) processor and a 3MG of L2 Cache and 3 Gb of pre installed memory. This Vaio comes with your genuine pre-installed Window Vista .. the Home edition and it is in French and English. It even has a in built microphone and video cam. Awesome..!!

Guitar Hero Aero Smith

The man had asked for this .. for Father’s Day.. so i’m doing a little research on it.. before buying it for him… because he already has a few of this game.  Released date is expected on June 29, 2008.  I kinda expecting that there will be lots of Aerosmith songs in it.  And in Australia.. it will be releasing on August 6 wherelse in Europe it is 2 days earlier than us here in North America.  I’m expecting it to be in the range of $70 – $80 for the game itself.. and the bundle at $169.

Palm T/X Handheld With Universal Wireless Keyboard


Wireless with built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology, exactly what i need .. since i will be traveling alot in the summer. I can use it to browse the web and check my emails from our store, or places like airports and cafes .. and not forgetting any hotels that have Wi-Fi without having to lug our laptop with us during our holidays. I can use Words, Excel and Powerpoint on it.. lots of potential. The Palm TX is also an MP3 player.. and let you read an eBook if you desire. Check your emails, store pictures and video on it. With 128mb .. it’s not alot.. but it does let you do a fair bit .. for about $450, you have your   office in your pocket.

Ipod Touch


The Apple 32gb ipod touch has gotta be one of the best things that Apple had invented. It’s alot bigger .. with alot more storage space for your videos and music. This gadget is really cool.. really ultra slim… yet very powerful. Wi-Fi and multi touch screen which is huge and easy to navigate. This is way cooler.. than the other ipods.. that Apple had. The only ipod that gives you wireless access when you are on the road by using the Apple’s Safari browser that is already built in for free.. this is again i have to say . .the coolest gadget. Searching the web is way, way easier now.. ! who needs a laptop for that..!

The World’s Largest HD Plasma

World Biggest Plasma Screen..!! and the man is of course eyeing at it.  But with a price tag of $80K .. i think he’ll have to wait a long time.  And given that you can buy two 43″ for $10K .. i really think it is very pricey..!

But the man is quite keen .. on getting it for himself… so we’ll see how it is.. but not until we get confirmation about the warranty .. which our supplier can’t tell yet. 1 yr but service center warranty.
