We brave the crowd to see what’s up at the PC Expo, a recurring event at Mid Valley, it attracts people looking for a bargain on some computer accessories. Despite it’s name, the expo is a disappointment to true tech enthusiasts but this time, there are some promising prospects for the home PC in general.

Conclusion

So yeah, the PC Expo have a lot of devices.. too many devices. One would feel pressured and tired from navigating the various booths looking for devices on offer. This year, it’s more about power-banks since mobile devices are the new in-thing for the general public. But having so many of the same kind of booths is overwhelming and I will not blame anyone for feeling tired after going through all the booths till the end. Was I glad to see Idealtech at the end.
I feel that the expo has yet to stay true to it’s purpose as the only true PC booth is presented by Idealtech and Stuff Magazine. While it is true that mobile devices are the thing(s) of the future, the PC will always have a place in modern day homes. The Idealtech team has proven just that at the end of the expo, turned the heads of people with PCs that promises the best form of entertainment for the whole family. I also get the chance to chat with the public, their eyes light up when I told them that the team will custom build a PC based on their needs and budget. 
People’s misconception of the term Personal Computer is disappointing indeed, I hope more exhibitors will be like Idealtech’s in the future so that the PC-Expo can deliver the true meaning of what a real PC is. Else they should rename it to Device expo instead.
