Pikom PC Fair 2005 II

Though I went to this PC fair twice, I didn't spend a single cent to buy anything. Both visits took approximately an hour each. Maybe not in the mood to buy computer hardware now. Normally, I would at least spend a few hundreds of ringgit in this kind of fair. Maybe because I'm currently spending on my own little salary. Have to think twice before buying anything.

As opposed to the old Pikom PC fair tradition, the location of this fair has been changed to Kuala Lumpur Convention Center, not the old Putra World Trade Center (PWTC) anymore. The environment is better, with everything of the building is still new. The fair took 5 halls of the center, but the first hall (a ballroom) is not connected to the other four. I noticed that if we proceeded to the second hall which is quite far from the first, we are not allowed to go back to the first hall unless we walk a big round for it. Bad arrangement!

Most of the booths were almost same as what can be seen in the past years. Nothing much... Anyone has visited this fair? What's your opinion of this fair?

    I would say the KL convention center is way better than the Pwtc in term of facilities and location :P Coz at least after the Pikom pc fair can still get to shop at the Klcc. On the other hand, this year is xtremely crowded with the somewat narrow lane for walking between stalls and this made it pretty hard for anyone to have a good look at anything :P Hall 1 is nice with booth of lotsa big names and not so bad as hall 3 or 4 which is where it get really congested~ Another sucky part is the one entrance and one exit which leave people with no choice but to run thro the whole venue :( Can see few changes to the last pikom pc fair with the inclusion of dell this year and the sony booth is awesome :)

    I remembered there's already a Dell booth in the past year because my sister got her laptop from them during last year fair. :)

    KLCC is better in term of facility in the convention center. But, I think parking is an issue there.
