This evening, I went to Ritchie Street, the one stop shop for all your computer peripheral and electronic needs. I purchased Logitech Keyboard Mouse combo (black) for 620 bucks. 4 in 1 USB hub for 90 bucks. I got it all from a shop called Delta Peripherals who regularly updates their prices online on this site.
I learned from the keeper the cheapest LCD monitor today would be BENQ which sells for around 8500, 15 inch model. As for CRT 15 inch flat, he said that they don’t got supplies anymore. When questioned why, he didn’t have a good ans. I am thinking if this is the drive to introduce 17 inch monitor as the entry level for new buyers. Today, 17 inch CRT flat monitors are 6K and above.
On my walk back to this shop, I stopped by to ask how much 1 GB USB flash drive cost these days. “1100 Sir”, i got the reply. I felt cheated becase a couple of months back it was around 2000. Then I asked for 2 GB which happened to be around 2000. It has reduced by half. However, I afford to smile again and felt glad I didn’t make a mistake by buying a 4GB PQI USB drive for $80 (3700 bucks) from Frys. Because when asked for a 4GB model, I was given one from Imation which costs 7000 bucks!!
