HP compaq 6720s

Yesterday helped my friend to buy a laptop replacing his ancient desktop...we went kinta city to catch lunch at Black Canyon then proceed with cinema to watch "Love Matters". Pretty hilarious especially the scene where Lai Meng try to castrate Lam Tuck Then we went Yik Foong Complex (sorta like Lowyat Plaza) here to get his laptop. After browsing through few shops finally settle for the one above..the HP 6720. Apparently HP was doing promotion for the model. specs as below. Also comes with the usual freegift and HP hamper....all together comes to a total of around 1600...I was the one doing the talking since my friend is not very well-verse with these things :)

-Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T5470 (1.6 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 2 MB L2 cache)

-1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

-160 GB 5400 rpm SATA

-LightScribe DVD+/-RW SuperMulti with Double Layer

-15.4 inch diagonal WXGA anti-glare; 15.4 inch diagonal WXGA BrightView

-Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100, with up to 384 MB shared system memory

-windows 7 beta

-1 year warranty

He only needs a basic laptop to work so the above spec should be quite ok i think. Seldom can get core2duo at this price. So what u think? i thought it was quite a deal..considering here is Ipoh not KL =)

Btw, came across a shop selling mainly Dell computers there and met a "cute" salesman there...i said cute bcos:

Me: Does this model come with any freebies?

Him: Erm..yes...if u really going to buy then i will discuss with my ah tau to see what we can do for u..

(i was thinking feebies should already be fixed rite? Y need to ask somemore leh?? and ....IF ur really going to is tat?? U think i cannot afford ka??..a little pissed off oledi)

Me: what freebies ur talking about exactly?

Him: (showing a laminated brochure with freebies option A,B,C?) U can pick any 10 objects from column A, but if u choose column B, each object is equals to 3 object A, etc etc.....i cant remember attention span is only so long :)

At this moment me and my fren is already scratching our head and making our way out liao....why on earth u wanna confuse we the poor customer like this le?? We are not rocket science scientist le..if we oso can get confuse, i cannot imagine what will happen to the poor uncle auntie who wanna throng the shop...

Its like telling someone if u wanna take me for dinner, u have to ask permission from my mother...but to see my mother u gotta see my father first, then even before u see my mother u have to make appt with the plastic surgeon first cos i scare she get heart attack when she see your "sui yong"....a long winded way to tell someone to f**k off. What a way to drive potential clients away lol...
