    I don't know of any online sales from Singapore. IMO not really necessary; if you want it you simply go buy it! If you want it shipped, several vendors will do international shipping but I've had massive trouble even getting a response via Email or phone. If you know someone there or stay at a hotel there you'd do better to have someone go buy it for you and ship it out.

    Even though I found a better configuration in Europe, the concierge at a hotel I've stayed at offered to make the purchase for me if the seller would accept a photocopy of my credit card. Alternatively I could've wired him the money. One lovely thing about SG; almost everyone is very honest and 99% of the people will go very far to help you.

    beefman, thank you for your answer, it was very helpful.

    Talos, thx for the link aswell!

    In general, singapore is quite cheap for laptops right? about the same as america?

    @SpaZamm :

    Try excaliberpc.com ---> i ordered internationally from them. They're reliable and they're pretty helpful with ur questions. They have several ASUS models at their site. The only problem would be warranties, if u have a problem with it, you have to send it back to them.

    Funan Digitalife Mall -> City Hall MRT Station
    Sim Lim Square -> I think it is more on hardware and accessories than a notebook mall :) But still worth to check it out.
    There are a couple of shops on the third and fourth floor at Funan that sells Asus notebooks.

    Cheers.

    pogitz -

    are you sure that excaliber's warranty isn't the same as the standart asus warranty?

    it said this on the home page:

    BTW, 93$ international shipping fee to israel!! Ouch, total cost ~1250 for the A8SC

    Most stores in Sim Lim Square publish pricelists. Go to HTTP://www.wareprice.com to see the latest. SG pricing isn't the best though. That A8SC? $1538 in USD. Even if you qualify for GST refund it's still $1430 or so.

    hey Spazamm ! IM not really sure about it. ( But I think that their ensemble ASUS notebooks, not the barebones are covered by ASUS global warranty. ) Just to be sure, u can email them and they've been pretty fast in answering inquiries. goodluck !
