Singnet Broadband Promotion

Finally Singnet has renew their broadband web with something meaningful! They have not been making any major moves lately as I remembered, there is the ASUS 9” EEE PC and Nokia Tablet N800. I forgot the prices for those plans. I sure it ain’t any fantastic, else I would have upgraded my subscription.

Coming back to this ACER netbook, let’s see the price you paid for it. It is NOT free, as a normal 10mbps plan is price at S$58. Therefore you are paying an extra S$7 a month. So essentially you are paying S$7 x 24 months (contract). That is S$168.

Pretty good deal. ACER AOA150, a similar machine with a smaller 8.9” LCD, will cost about S$600 already.

But really how good is the machine? 

The bottomline is that it is not suitable for serious schoolwork or business. You might find it frustrating to type on such a small machine and the screen is so small!Really, I have a ASUS EEE PC and only use it to watch movie on MRT.

For me, it should serve as something you bring along to entertain yourself during times when you are alone on the road. But ACER netbook aren’t really known for long battery life. 2 hours is the time I was told that the netbook will last. I don’t like to carry 1 kg machine around the whole just for 2 hours.

I think I just said something that was repeated all over the internet. But thats what the netbook manufacturers did to create the netbook wave.

I am not renewing my plan yet…
