  • Buying laptop

    Hello everyone.

    Moved in Tokyo about a week or so ago. I`ve been looking to buy a laptop, can anyone give some advice about where can I find good places for laptops in tokyo area? I don`t really mind if it j OS/keyboard or not.

    Thanks

    The most obvious answer would be Akihabara, where they've got the giant electrical goods stores, Bic Camera, Yamada Denki etc, as well as second-hand shops and more English speaking shop assistants if needed. Otherwise, Ikebukuro, Shinjuku and I think Shibuya have the same big stores.

      My favorite place for electronics is Yodobashi. There are several stores around Tokyo. You can also haggle with them to get "amazon" prices if you don't need Yodobashi points. They have everything I have ever needed and more.

        I prefer the Bic Camera jingle though.

                If you don't want to spend much, get a used one from craigslist or similar. Some people have unrealisic ideas what their old PCs should be worth, but dual cores with English OS go for around Y 20,000 (DELL Latitude 420 or similar - Don't buy single cores if you care about performance.)

                Sofmap.com also has refurbished ones with guarantee but only J-OS.
