Laptops and netbooks rank high on wish lists for The PC Show 2010

71% of respondents predict PC Show 2010 will see an excellent response

Singapore, 1 June 2010 – Singaporeans say that the top three consumer electronic gadgets that have changed their lives the most in the past 20 years are the laptop, mobile phones and smart phones, according to a survey conducted by The PC Show 2010. In celebration of its 20 th year in Singapore, Lines Exposition and management Services, the organisers of the PC Show commissioned a dipstick survey to see how Singaporeans’ love for consumer electronics has evolved over the years. Congruent with these findings, these gadgets were amongst the favourite purchase lists for this year too, with 22% consumers revealing that they hoped to bag a laptop or netbook, and 23% saying they hope to get a new mobile or smart phone at this year’s PC Show. With the event celebrating its 20 th year anniversary, an overwhelming majority (71%) of respondents are predicting the show will be an excellent one this year.

Ms Gillian Loh, project manager of show organiser, Lines Exposition and Management Services, said, “For the past twenty years, The PC Show has been growing with Singapore as a nation, responding to consumers’ demands for the latest electronic gadgets. Our lives are so integrated with technology that we’ve have even got digital photo frames and electronic books now. Our gadgets have changed our lifestyles so much that most people probably cannot imagine living 20 years ago without their laptop or mobile phone. The PC Show is a great place for consumers to grab hold of the latest gadgets at value for money prices and I hope people will come down and take advantage of the promotions.”

The Most Coveted IT Purchase of the Year

21% of consumers polled plan to purchase a laptop for their next gadget fix, with an equal number wishing to snag a mobile or smart phone.

The 34% consumers who shared that the smart phone was gadget that impacted their lives the most in the last 20 years will be happy to see the Garmin-Asus M10 at the show. The first smart phone to come with Windows® Mobile 6.5.3, it is a full-touch all-in-one smart phone featuring preloaded mobile navigation. Others exhibitors worth checking out include Samsung, and Acer amongst others.

Gadgets that have Grown with Consumers Habits

Besides the latest finds, the PC Show is also home to gadgets that have grown with consumer habits throughout their lives.
