Just bought a new Acer Aspire laptop from Cycom at Lowyat Plaza last week. The Aspire model comes in few variants with difference Processor, HDD size and colours.
This laptop comes with 4GB RAM, it takes only RM 70 to add up 8GB. It cost me total of RM 2170, with free gifts: 2 laptop bags (sling and backpack) and AVF gift box (mouse, cooling pad, headset and USB all-in-one card reader).
To Turn on bluetooth, press on “Fn” and “F3″ keys together at the same time, then it will prompt a small box for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth activation.

It’s been one year and a half driving my Mazda, one of the first batch import of CBU Mazda3 sport 2.0 hatchback. Comes with 1,999cc MZR engine, Max power: 145hp @ 6500rpm. Max torque: 182Nm @ 4500rpm.
Currently mileage record at more than than 30,000KM. Gearbox is smooth, stock TOYO tyre still good to go, engine stay quiet as usual, handling remain responsive and seems everything is still in good condition.
What i think and discover about this car so far,
i) Driver seat, the closer to steering wheel, handle feels more better, but in exchange of less space for legs
ii) From 2nd gear to 3rd gear, there are a small gap. While floor the pedal fully down, there will be moment of “empty”, then the power will come right after that.
iii) Comforts zone on 105km/h – 140km/h. Less or more than it just normal or bored
iv) Little Shelf in the rear of Glove compartment which enough to store books or foods
v) Have to place gear in “P”, parking mode to open Hatchback boot
vi) Superb fun driving around east coast with mountains roads and lots of corners
vii) NVH(Noise, vibration, and harshness ) level consider satisfied after year and a half
NVH level, Speed alarm at 170 KM/H
Since 4th quarter of 2010, ckd version of mazda3 was manufacture locally, handled by Inokom’s plant in kulim. Last batch of cbu mazda3 import arrived on april according to MyMazda club forum.
Differences between CBU and CKD that i discovered:
- Slightly different material and weight on rim
- Different brand of tyres, CBU comes with Toyo
- Two variants: GL and GLS variants
- The word “Sport” is not stick on sedan GL version
- Colors and Prices: http://mazda.com.my/mazda3/prices.aspx

Maybe you are considering this car now? Go for it if:
- don’t mind around 450km per tank
- doesn’t mind a little overprice than its competitors
- doesn’t mind facelift is coming, Mazda3 facelift with skyactiv
- okay with it’s unique shape
- expecting a nice handling car
- need for speed sometimes

What is Google Chrome Dev Channel?
“Developer preview channel. The Dev channel is where ideas get tested (and sometimes fail). The Dev channel can be very unstable at times, and new features usually require some manual configuration to be enabled. Still, simply using Dev channel releases is an easy (practically zero-effort) way for anyone to help improve Google Chrome.” (Mark Larson, 2009)
In another words, Dev channel offers more features compare to stable release, these features might or might not be be include in stable channel in future. So, by using Dev channel, you will be able to test out new features. For example, recent update that comes with tablets like interface and bookmarks sync.
