RM6,392 paid for RM2,999 laptop... what a joke..

Would you pay for a laptop priced at 100% more than the suggested retail price?? ahaha... i did a survey and guess what ... NO ONE WILL BUY THE LAPTOP!!! ... but Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) would..

"Earlier this month, it was revealed that the MPSJ had spent RM179,000 last month to buy 28 laptops for the councillors, which worked out at RM6,392 per unit.

Selangor state local government, research and studies committee chairman Ronnie Liu was reported to have said that the market price for the laptops was only RM2,999 each and it would not exceed RM4,000 if software installation fee was to be included."

"According to MPSJ president Datuk Adnan Md Ikshan, the purchase was made via a tender system and of the four offers received, the council had chosen the one which quoted the lowest price."

Only if i knew about it... i would have quoted them at RM5,000 ... haigh.. missed that chance already...i'm also pretty sure that they laptops that they got are not really high end ones... for that price , they should have bought the lowest range of the Apple MacBook... at least they'll look cooler with the MacBook.. even if they only use it to check their mails ... or listen to iTunes...
