Almost 4,000 laptops seized by the the Bureau of Customs will be donated to the Department of Education (DepEd) to aid students and teachers in public elementary and high schools nationwide.

HSDPA laptops in 2007

Relevance: 58%      Posted on: December 28, 2006

I mentioned this to the girls over at Globe the last time we had a thanksgiving dinner. Since Laptops with built-in HSDPA cards are starting to come out, would it not be a good marketing idea to bundle these rigs with SIM cards. HP is coming out with one model, Compaq 6400, while Lenovo is partnering with Cingular to do the same. Dell signed a deal with Vodafone to offer the same 3G-ready laptops (Dell Latitude D420) and I think Acer has one too. If them telcos can easily snag new customers by bundling cellphones with postpaid plans even at…

Why brand matters with laptops and not desktops?

Relevance: 54%      Posted on: June 30, 2012

I posted this question a couple of days ago on Twitter and got a barrage of really insightful responses. Why do brand names have a huge influence when picking a laptop but not a desktop? Many years ago, when I bought my very first laptop, I got a white label unit. It was affordable (30% less than equivalent branded units), had decent specs and passable design. Today, I no longer find those kinds of laptops in stores. In the case of my desktop PC, I bought might from parts and assembled them myself. No branded cases and no familiar logo…
