Wattana = almost no choice and very high prices - generally 10-20% over Tukcom

IT centre = Tukcom

The op asked where laptop shops were in Pattaya. Wattana is a laptop shop. I suggest the op check out the prices and SERVICE after purchase in ALL suggested locations and render his own decision.

Also try Liberty Computers in New Plaza next to the Issuzi Dealership on second road. They are english and you can be sure of ongoing support, one thing to be wary of wherever you decide to buy is make sure the software is a genuine original and not a Thai copy which is common in some shopping centers.

Carrefour, and you can use an American Express card, with no extra charge, and earn valuable "Membership Rewards" points, you can use toward your next dream vacation.

I would add that I recently bought a TOSHIBA laptop, a lower model, but brand new, purchased in Ameri-gay for $399, brand new, sealed box, with battery, Windows Vista included, (FRY'S Electronics). That has to be $200 to $300 less than the cheapest you can buy here, cause of the high taxes the government imposes, so they can discourage people from owning and using computers, and discourage them from advancing their society and lives.

It's one thing to put a high tax on luxury goods, like yachts and some high end watches, but computer use should be encouraged. Oh well. What do I know.

In any event, if planning a trip abroad, buy the laptop there, and with the savings, you can deduct, in your mind, the savings from the high cost of your airfare to get there.

JR Texas: Wattana has been there for a long time, the people are nice, and as far as I am concerned trustworthy (always have treated me fairly). That being said, you are no doubt aware of Pantip Plaza in Bangkok.........I know you said "Pattaya" but I would first shop around at Pantip Plaza........more laptops and more bargains.

The best place for lap tops in Pattaya is Tuk Com. They will set it up with one of the more experienced service vendors there like pattaya2u. Shop around because there are some bargains to be had or you could be had. :o

Not to sure about savings on stuff like lap tops

What’s the saving going to be 2000, 3000 baht?

not much. Just check the so called freebies you get with it

Not so free after all, Most times.

Saying that steer clear of high street shops. not enough competition so they do rip you off

Happy bargain hunting.
