Maybe Laptop Prices in Singapore Weren’t That Good After All?

A long view down an aisle at a Super Walmart.

My aunt’s mother says that if you can’t find it at Walmart, you don’t need it, and you really could live by that.  A Super Walmart has groceries, clothes, electronics, and even car parts and it’s all sold for low, low, sometimes ridiculously low prices.  I remember when I was younger I didn’t like the idea of shopping at Walmart, but that was back before I was spending my own money on the things I wanted to buy.  Now that everything is coming out of my own pocket, I look for good deals over fancy brand labels.

Something Walmart seems to be doing really well at is their laptop pricing.  Have a look:

I remember seeing that 278 USD (362 SGD) Acer for sale in Singapore for 600 SGD.  I remember seeing that 298 USD (388 SGD) HP laptop for 800 SGD in Singapore.

Walmart really does have some low prices, and I’m not complaining.

I didn't see any coffins in the Walmarts we went to, but I remember reading a news article about it. Maybe those are being sold through another set of stores Walmart owns, like Sam's Club.

I'm pretty sure you'll love Walmart though. You could spend hours in a Super Walmart browsing and shopping!

I remember lamenting the loss of Amazon when I moved over to Singapore. I kept wishing I could order from it, but even if I could the shipping costs would have ruined any savings. I'm glad you reminded me of that. I think you wrote a post about your computer upgrade, but my browser crashed. I need to get back to it!

I've always bemoaned the rip-off prices (in Italy) for any electronic device. We get GOUGED compare to Walmart, Amazon, or any other online store located stateside. Just paid 499€ for a laptop that I am sure costs at least 25% less back home. Grrrrr….
