Accent Micro will have the newly released macbook this week, that according to a local mac forum. The suggested retail price for the low end macbook is Php 73,500, Php 87,000 for the mid, and a whopping Php 100,000 for the black macbook or what they now call a “blackbook”. The prices are still subject to change.
From a local PC Forum
kaya nila pinalitan yung pangalan nila kasi ang “WiFi” ay misleading sa actual na technology na ginagamit nila.
fixed wireless internet sila (broadband using antenna pero lan parin ang pasok sa pc)
yung wifi naman gamit ung 802.11a/b/g protocol. access point to wifi card ang interface nyan
napagsabihan ata sila ng wifi alliance and they decided to rebrand their product
pero before nila pinalitan dami nila inayos/upgrade sa base stations kaya panay dc, no connection. ewan ko lang ngayon hehe
Some also say that the rebranding was because Smart Wifi now has a bad reputation due to poor services to its subscribers.
A lot of subscribers have been complaining that their DSL connection slowed down a notch from 384 kbps it somewhat went back to 256 kbps. It all started last April and until now. If you’re one of those who are experiencing slowdown, call 172 and report your problem or better yet find another dsl or cable internet provider like Globelines Broadband, SkyDSL, ZPDee, etc.
