Saw once in a factory outlet. Seems a bit cheaper. But warranty can be an issue. Nowadays I consider lucky if electronics still work after warranty.

not sure yet.

at the moment, maybe just the Bose companion 3 to replace my home PC.

Read that got discount from IT Show, but some said discounted price still more expensive than buying from US, given the strong S$.

thinking if really cheap, maybe can shop for bose home theater system too. :oops:

don't buy Bose. They're way over priced for what they deliver. Get the Travagans speakers. Much better than Bose.
