MacBook Pro Prices in Kuwait

Post by Mark

MacBook Pro

TivoGuy passed by zMacShop yesterday because he was interested in the MacBook Pro. He was expecting the prices to be a bit more expensive then the States but it turns out they were selling it for KD890 which is KD160 more expensive! This is for the 15.4″ 2.0Ghz with 1GB RAM and 100GB HD. So I phoned a couple of other Mac stores in Kuwait to see how much they were all charging for the same laptop and this is what I found:

Mac & More
Tel: 5735815
Price: KD 980

Integrated Office Co (IOC)
Tel: 6275734
Price: KD 980

Mac City
Tel: 4911112
Price: KD 970

Kamal Al Sultan Co
Tel: 4815533
Price: KD 965

zMacShop
Tel: 2617575
Price: KD 890

Solize
Tel: 7215945
Price: KD 850

Turns out zMacShop is actually a lot cheaper then the other Mac stores in Kuwait but surprisingly not the cheapest. The cheapest store turned to be Solize and by KD40 which is a nice chunk of change. The price on Amazon is KD730 for your information.

The Powerbook problem

Post by Mark

DC-IN Board

I think I figured out what I fucked up in Nats Powerbook yesterday. I think I damaged the DC-IN Board. I managed to find some second hand ones on eBay that cost between $15 to $45 which is pretty cheap. The problem is installing it is going to be a bitch. [Link]

busted powerbook adapter

I think I busted Nat’s PowerBook. My creative director got a new power adapter for his Powerbook since his adapter’s head was mangled up, I decided to take it off his hands and its been with me for like 2 weeks now. I don’t know what I was thinking but for some stupid reason today I decided to see if it still worked, and I just went ahead and plugged it into Nats Powerbook. It didn’t work but when I went back and plugged Nats power adapter it also didnt work! Now I think I might have damaged her Powerbooks power socket or maybe short cicuited something. So last month I broke our dogs leg and this month I broke her Powerbook.. I hope she doesn’t believe in the 3 strikes and you are out rule…

Note: Picture above is of the adapter I plugged into Nats Powerbook…
