Incredible SGD579 laptop deal


Check out this advertisement that I saw on a website in March! 579 Singapore Dollars is a pretty good deal!

Are they serious?

Wait a minute, it's US Dollars. They could tell I had a Singaporean IP address so they thought they'd do some misleading advertising?

Wait a minute, it's a Dell.

Wait a minute, it's a Vostro! I reiterate from my Twitter post in January:

Which marketing genius came up with the name “Dell Vostro”? Sounds like a disease of the brainstem.

Never mind, I don't want it for 579 Singapore Dollars. Or US Dollars. Or whatever the currency is. I need a cup of coffee!
