Confirmed: Laptop Delivered for Free From Manila to Davao

Finally, our plan was realized. Presenting our new baby — the Acer Aspire 4730z!

Acer Aspire AS4730Z

It also marks our first successful online shopping experience. At first, we were hesitant to purchase something that we weren’t able to see. After all, online shopping tends to be risky in some cases.

In the end, though, we took the plunge and bought the laptop by ordering online, via PC Corner, a well-known computer shop in Mandaluyong City.

“Why not buy in Davao City?”, you might ask. Unfortunately, this Acer laptop series was in demand, and therefore hard to find. We asked the big shot computer shops like Columbia Computer Center and Digital Interface, to lesser known stores like Octagon and Micro Valley. Not one of them had the item on stock!

Plus, who can resist a freebie? One of the factors that encouraged us to buy online is the free delivery anywhere in the Philippines. After we paid for the laptop by making a deposit to their Banco de Oro account, the purchased items were sent via 2GO Express and we were able to track the package through the courier’s e-Trace service. We ordered on a Tuesday, and our package arrived the following day. Great!

Another come-on was the higher laptop specs (4 GB RAM, Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200, 250 GB Hard Disk) that PC Corner was offering.

So, how is our new Acer Aspire 4730z doing? We’re actually still tinkering with it, so we’ll need a little more time to write a review on this gadget. 😉

  3. great deal na to. P28.5k w/ the standard 2GB RAM without OS pero u got 4GB of RAM… wow. 🙂

  4. how much is this laptop?

    • As I’ve posted earlier, the unit is PhP 29,995 + PhP 8,200 Vista and MS Office 2007 = PhP 38,195.

      I think the current price for this particular model is a bit lower than when we purchased it a while back.

  5. may laptop din ba kayo na Php10,000-Php15,000 ang price. kung meron please e-mail the specifications at emay_nmaj@yahoo.com. Thank you

  6. Hi, Emay.

    We actually don’t sell anything here. We bought our laptop from PC Corner. If you like, you can visit their site (click on the link in the article) and check their laptops. I think you might find something within your preferred price range, but I doubt if it will be any good.

    Thanks for visiting the site. 😉

  16. Did anybody reply to glorychel? I also need to buy a laptop for my sister but am out of the country and would love to be able to pay through paypal…or any suggestions?

    note: i want to pay it myself instead of sending money

  17. I did have a look at PC Corner but not sure how to pay and what about warranty?

    • Hi, Lyn. From what we know, PC Corner accepts payments through bank deposits. You can contact them to ask if they can accommodate your payment via Paypal. You may also want to check other online stores to see which ones accept Paypal for payments. I’m sure there are several of them. Just be careful and make sure you buy only from legit stores.
