Record traffic for OzBargain over the last few days. It all started when dansor posted the mistake by Dell on their Vostro 220ST desktop system. A lot of people clicked through and “purchased” the desktop before the deal was taken down (although according to Dell, they have never received payment). Well. The pricing was a […]

LCD Monitors – 24″ is the New 22″

scotty on 13/09/2008 at 9:15 pm, filed under Computer

LCD monitors — they just get bigger and cheaper all the time. A while ago Chimei’s 22 inch LCD led the revolution that made 22″ the “best bang for the buck”, and now you can buy those for as little as $250 a pop. One problem for 22″ though is its resolution. At 1680×1050 it […]

No one asked for it but I have just implemented a small feature on OzBargain that I think would be very useful for store owners — full RSS feed on deals and comments posted on OzBargain, against the domain name of your store.

ASUS Eee PC 701 4GB $399 from ShoppingSquare

scotty on 29/03/2008 at 6:15 pm, filed under Computer

Yes I have been obsessed with the ASUS Eee PC. It has nothing to do with my 3 1/2 year old — it was me who wanted to play with the small ultra-portable notebook. In fact I have bought one in early February — almost $450 delivered from eBay for a slightly used Eee PC […]

I have got a problem to solve here. I want a cheap low-end notebook — not something I need, but just something that is nice to have. I want it for my 3 1/2 year old daughter who spent around 1-1.5 hour a day in front of computers playing with sites such as Sesame Street […]

Scott’s History of Computer Monitors 1995 Bought my very first computer when I moved out home. Paid $300 for a 14″ KTX CRT, and thought it was a pretty good price. 1998 Spent $950 on a 19″ CTX CRT that did 1600×1200 @ 75Hz, after shopped around for a long time. It was heavy, and […]

Notebook Computer Extra Warranty, Worth It?

scotty on 06/08/2007 at 7:26 pm, filed under Computer

My wife’s 4.5 years old iBook G3 died two weeks ago. Well, probably not like the flaming iBook, but it will not boot from the hard disk, and booting from the installation CD only results kernel panic with memory-related error messages. Sounds like it is time for a new computer! That iBook was actually the […]
