An Update with the Samsung Contest

Guys, I have over 1,500 entries for the Samsung Shark laptop. Wow. As I previously announced that I will announce the winners tomorrow night, is it OK if you give me more time to sift through the winners? I’ll probably announce the winner on Monday or Tuesday morning, latest. This is also because Sunday night is the Philippine Blog Awards and it would be great if you could come! I heard that sponsors wil be raffling off several neat things as well!

Secondly, this week was supposed to be the “halfway mark” for the contest series. I had planned on ending the year with this contest and resume the raffles by early January since I really won’t have time to judge entries. However, Samsung was really happy with the responses from this week’s contest that they wanted to sponsor another week (!!!) of prizes. We’re still finalizing the prize so again, please bear with me as I try to accomodate everyone for the holidays!

Yay Samsung!

Toshiba’s Flat Iron T110 and T130 Ultraportable


They’re not for gaming, but the new ultra-light Portege models from Toshia are indeed beautiful. There are two of them available for the market — the T110 and T130, separated only by the stock RAM available. The T110 comes with 1GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a 250GB hard drive and boasts an 11.6 inch wide screen. It’s close to a netbook, but not quite.

The T130 comes with 2GB of stock RAM and 320GB or 500GB hard disk space. This line of “flat iron” netbooks come with an Intel GMA 4500 video card. It won’t be able to play your latest games that’s for sure but an ultralight laptop doesn’t exactly fit that purpose.

All models also come with Windows 7 Home Edition in full 64 bit glory, which means that you may really want to take advantage of the higher models if you wanna boost up your RAM (the T130 can go up to 8GB). All models run on a 1.3GHz Intel SU2700 with 3MB of L2 Cache.

All models also come with 3 USB 2.0 ports but only one port is available as a charger.

TOSHIBA Year End Sale! December 4-5 2008

[Click photo to enlarge]

With the launch of their first concept store in SM Mega Mall earlier last month, Toshiba is also wrapping up 2008 with their YEAR END SALE, with up to 60% markdown on brand new units! Note that the sale is not going to be in the concept store, but in the TRICOM warehouse. The address is listed below, but if you’re familiar with the uber delicious Mickey’s Deli, it is right across!

December 4 & 5, 2008
TRICOM – 2F Metro House Bldg.
345 Sen. Gil Puyat Ave., Makati City, MM

Note that the sale is only from 8 AM to 6 PM – tricky for those with a 9 to 5 job!

Here are some photos from the concept store official opening and blessing, along with the iServ logo which you should look out for in case your Toshiba need servicing:

Toshiba’s new milestone – and this is worth mentioning, is that they now have full local support through their dealers and concept store. All you need to do is look for the Toshiba iServ logo in front of stores to know if the dealer is accredited to receive your Toshiba product.
