Hello GP faithful,
Haven't posted in ages, but I seek advice...
Yamada Denki is giving a 5 man discount on computers if you sign for a 2 year WiMAX contract. The MacBook Air 13.3" is down to about 106,000. So... my current (free) internet is about as fast as dial-up, and I'm moving to a new place soon and will be needing internet anyway. Having a WiMAX router to stuff in my briefcase will also save me money on my iPhone bill by not eating up so much data and being able to Skype more often than calling.
So 56,000 up front (plus a 2200 yen sign-up fee) to take home an Air.
Yodobashi is still 120k ish for the same computer, 5% points. Yamada is giving 13% points til the 9th. Haven't been to Bic.
Anyone with good/bad/neutral reviews of WiMAX? After my time in Hokkaido with Plala that only worked on odd number days, I think anything will make me happy.
If any of you guys know of better deals/discounts going on, please do share.
