Acer or eMachines?

320 GB versus Acer's 500 GB.
Took all the photos in this post at xT Pro.
Ever since my friend got an Acer Netbook for
P 12,000 (display unit, P 12,500 at xT Pro) in Greenbelt around third quarter last year, I thought of getting it as my next laptop, as I'm happy with my Acer Aspire One which I've had since around Chinese New Year 2009, which makes it 3 years old!

Now I'm torn between the eMachines Acer 355, which looks exactly like my friend's Acer, and the Acer Aspire AOD 257.  The eM costs P 12,500 at xT, while the Acer costs P 14,900 at PC Depot.

According to the Unofficial eMachines Forum, the em 355 - 1609 with 1 G of RAM is almost identical as the Aspire One 533.

This is the data that I could find online, which is not the latest since the eMachines 355 at xT Pro has 2 GB memory and 6cell Li-on Battery which makes it the same as the Acer AOD 257:

The Asus was too heavy.

Feng Shui Figurines

When Ms. Vegas asked me to get her and her friends some figurines, I told her that the best time to get them is now that there are Chinese New Year exhibits.  She thought that I would need to go to Binondo to get them.  I told them that San Juan has everything that Binondo has.

Blue dragon, elephants, horses, birds at V-Mall.
Ms. Vegas sent me the World of Feng Shui links to guide me on what she wants:

Blue dragon

Ox

I might hop over to Megamall this long weekend to check out the sale that ends on January 31, but maybe the World of Feng Shui is a shop that Ms. Vegas can check out herself since it's a permanent shop or stall.

Green dragon.  Thanks to my friend for spotting and styling.
Anyway, when I checked out the V-Mall exhibit on the ground floor, it turns out that most of them have a stall or store upstairs.

The Chinese New Year sale ends on January 24, Tuesday.
