    English is better in Bangkok than here in Hong Kong though? Online payments are pretty bad in Hong Kong, I'm not sure whether that makes it better than the none allowed in Thailand. You pretty much have to pay in USD for anywhere so you pay a premium over the brick & motor store. However Hong Kong is tiny and you have a few reasonable computer markets, you can get a rough idea of what is available with any of the local magazines. HiTech, PCM, e-zone all show new products every week.

    You're criticising the English ability of Bangkok store owners when you haven't figured out how to use full stops, commas or capitalisation?

    Nah, that'd be the Grammar, Punctuation and General-Ability-to-Communicate Police. Oh, and for good measure, the Irony Patrol.

    Hi everyone,

    May I ask a question?

    What is high-end computer?

    I think many normal computers are available here in HK. e.g. Window XP, Vista...

    I presume a gaming rig, which is actually difficult to buy without going DIY or Dell.

    It could mean a workstation but that's very rare to be asked about here.

    As Mr Moo mentioned, Hong Kong doesn't really do the online thing, at least not cheaply and reliably. When people want cheap tech here, they go in person to one of several computer markets.

    You would be better off looking at online stores in the US, if they ship outside the country.

    Are you *sure* that you want delicate electronics shipped by post? Of all the things that would be a bad idea to put through international post, motherboards and hard drives are right up there. Specially as you won't have any sort of local warranty in case things go wrong.
