UPDATE: Due to overwhelming response, Netcom has extended its TechXpo promotions to September 9. Head over to Netcom’s Kiulap showroom today while stocks last.

TechXpo is the perfect time and place to get deals on PCs and gadgets. This year, Netcom Computer House is going all out with its promotions in conjunction with the TechXpo Cybergames Tournament 2019 at Bridex, Jerudong.

We’ve highlighted some of those products from the booth that’s certainly worth checking out.

Dell G Series Gaming Laptop

Did you know that Dell makes killer gaming laptops? The G series is Dell’s portable gaming lineup and are available exclusively at Netcom.

There’s a G series laptop for everyone, from the budget-friendly G3 15 to the top-of-the-line G5 15.

And exclusively during and after the TechXpo, Netcom is offering a G3 15-inch gaming laptop for just $999. This Core i5, GTX 1050-powered machine is a great bargain for cash-strapped gaming laptop hunters. It also comes with 4GB RAM, 1TB hard drive and 128GB SSD, and comes with 2 years warranty.

And for another $99, you’ll get a Dell KB216 Multimedia Keyboard and Dell 24-inch SE2417HG Gaming Monitor bundled with the G3!

Should you need more power, go for the $1,798 Dell G5, which comes with a Core i7 and GTX1660Ti, while a step up RTX 2060 model will set you back $2,299.

Dell XPS 13

If you’re on the hunt for an ultrabook this year, look no further than the Dell XPS 13. This is the 2019 edition, which is a total refresh of the highly-acclaimed XPS series.

With its gorgeous infinity display and striking a good balance of power and portability, the new Dell XPS 13 currently stands as one of this year’s best laptops. We’ve always been a fan of Dell’s XPS 13 series since its debut, and we couldn’t recommend this enough. It’s even thinner and lighter than what is already an ultra-compact XPS notebook, the specs are beefed up to handle graphic-intensive tasks while on-the-go, and Dell has moved the webcam on top of the display for a more pleasant angle.

This is the laptop for the road warriors who demand more power in an ultrathin form factor. Available in two configuratons: $1,999 for the Core i5 model and $2,399 for the Core i7 model. Both models feature 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD and Intel UHD graphics.

Tournament-tested gaming PC

If you were at the tournament floor over the weekend, you’ll notice the gaming rigs used by CS:GO and League of Legends contestants. Those pre-built PCs were assembled by Netcom and are actually on sale for just $1,499. 

This tournament-tested setup is guaranteed to handle many popular esports titles. It’s perfect for those looking to get a custom gaming PC but don’t want to go through the hassle of buying individual parts and assembling them together.

Dell Gaming Monitor

If you’re serious about PC gaming, then you shouldn’t skimp on a good gaming monitor. Netcom’s got you covered with its Dell range of gaming displays.

Hot on Netcom’s store is the Dell 24-inch S2419HGF Gaming Monitor (pictured). At $299, it’s a really well-designed 24-inch monitor with a 1080p TN display with a fast 120Hz refresh rate out of the box, and can be easily overclocked to 144Hz.

There’s also a cheaper option to the 24-inch gaming monitor, the SE2417HG, which costs just $159.

HyperX is the official gaming accessory for the TechXpo Cybergames Tournament 2019.

PROLiNK® Xtend Pro

Having problems getting Wi-Fi coverage around your home? Your Wi-Fi extenders may not be good enough, but going “mesh” could be a better solution.
