It is the time of the year again - starting school. Looking at apartments, finding room mates and trying to be all-set-for-classes. The business school experience already seems to have begun here.
We hit Circuit City to get hold of a best-bang-on-the-buck Toshiba laptop computer for $479 and ended up with a HP Pavillion widescreen notebook for $749. Only the psychology of consumer behaviour can explain the motivation behind the decision.
Having said that, if you are from India and joining school here, add the following to the list of things you can think of carrying from home.
  1. Web Cam (not available for less than $30)
  2. Head phone and mic
  3. USB drive
  4. Computer Mouse (if required)

While you must carry minimum luggage, make sure you dont miss out on these.

  1. I foudn USB drives to be much cheaper here.

    Also, I don't know if you look at online deals.. You'd be better off if you looked at these before buying anything:

    3. www.edealsinfo.con ( a special website for dell coupons)


  2. Oh yes da, I did spend almost an entire day checking online deals. Ofcourse not all of the links you mentioned.

    But my point is why spend unnecessarily when you can get good ones from home. There is a heavy start-up cost already!

  3. Oh.... yeah and I'm talking about 2005 times - This time in India didn't go out that much... And yes, all desi students have an initial X40 problem.


  4. 479? gosh thats cheap!!
