Looking to get a tablet computer HK- what shops and best tablet computer?I'm looking to get a tablet computer in HK, and I'm looking for a cheap yet good performance tablet computer. Any recommendations? And what shops to go to? The usual- Broadway, Fortress World, etc. or go to the computer centres- Mong Kok, Shamshuipo, etc.

1You can get a little cheaper in the computer centres although some shops are perhaps a little dodgy. Fortress and Broadway are safe places to buy, and you can also use a credit card without paying extra - in the smaller shops you probably have to pay 2-3% extra if using a credit card. If you know what you are doing, do some research and buy in the computer centre.

2Broadway and Fortress don't really stock cheap tablets, only more-or-less well-known ones, and not a very broad selection at that.
The computer malls have more models and cheaper certainly, but not that more compared with what you can find online. When it comes to tablets, HK people seem to want the expensive name brands, so not that many places stock the cheaper brands.
In any event, Golden Mall (or Arcade or whatever it's called) in Sham Shui Po seems to have the largest selection. Don't forget to consider the warranty, though these things don't seem built to last, and warranties on the little-known brand tablets probably aren't worth much.
If you haven't shopped for computers and such in Hong Kong, know that the set-up -- at the malls especially -- isn't meant to give you much a chance to try the stuff out. You're supposed to somehow already know what you want, and if the price is right, just fork over the money and buy it.
