    Gaming laptop in HK

    Does anyone know a good shop to get a decent gaming laptop in Hong Kong? An online shop would be okay too.

    Also, it seems like gaming laptops are overpriced in HK for some reason...I searched up the Lenovo y580 on price.com and it costs $3000 more than the price quoted on newegg.com

    Any idea why?

    Not sure, but 298 is a dying mall. Lenovo is large enough they shouldn't require middleman to do the work for them. Why not haggle a bit with the price you see in newegg while taking into consideration the difference in rent expenditure between 298 and newegg.

    Thanx for the help everyone! The student price does at least seem reasonable compared to the original.

    Hopefully we get a website like newegg in HK sometime soon..

    There's also different Y580 models. Newegg's may be a slightly different model. I've found that unless there's a sale in the US, prices in HK will be comparable unless you're buying a parallel import US model in which case you pay more AND don't have a valid warranty.

    Price.com.hk is basically a listing of products online. Shops will post their prices and info, and if you like the info, you can go to the shop and buy. Some of them offer online purchase/delivery options.

    Also, I have a Y560p that I'm preparing to sell (just got a desktop) if you're interested. Radeon 6570m, i7 2630QM, bluray, 8gb ram, 640HDD, perfect condition since I have it hooked into a keyboard, mouse, monitor and basically leave it at home as a desktop.
