Look closely. His reply is embedded within the quote. Hard to make any sense of it.
At least he's only quoting one time now, instead of the double quotes from last week.
On a positive note, there is progress.

If the quick 2 day trip tp Bangkok pushes through will most likely head to IT City/MBK at Pantip Plaza. Hopefully they will be open first weekend of March - no surprise refurbishment please! - so that my quick trip will be smooth. Will make sure then to have all my software sorted out before I leave and will also expect to pay an additional $100 for os.
About the 7% VAT refund, do I just show them my receipt at the airport and then they'll give me cash?
If I end up buying my laptop in PP, Ill avoid the big shops and go with smaller ones, no more ptc and psc then. Will most likely head to Anana or ICE and see if I can find a shop(s?) in Kirirum as well. In case you have personal experience with other smaller shops please post them as well. Although I will most likely limit myself to 4-5 shops and then decide.
side question: @ Bitte_Kein_Lexus, how is the 256SSD working out? good and better than having 1TB if with 8gig ram?
When you pay the shop you have to ask for the PP10 form. IT City automatically ask if you need one.jmap wrote:About the 7% VAT refund, do I just show them my receipt at the airport and then they'll give me cash?

2 different malls about 2 kms apart
Its final, we've talked it over and will go to Bangkok, spent a week or two there too just to make it more worth while.
Also decided will just head on to IT city and hope to get what I want there. If not well a lot other options too.
Thanks for the PP10 form tip.
I wanted light and portable. I store all my stuff in an external HD anyways, but typically all the essentials are easily stored in 256 minus windows. Programs, documents, some pictures and so on.
I honestly wouldn't go to Thailand JUST for a laptop. I can't remember the name of the shop I bought at in PP but could look it up. I've been to Pantip plaza and all the other malls (went there in July this year comparing laptop prices) and really unimpressed. Not sure why people say it's cheaper. Virtually no taxes in Cambodia in the first place, and laptops tend to come from Taiwan or China anyways, so no real savings to be made. A few more mods available I suppose, but nothing mind blowing. If you're already going there for another reason then fine, but if buying a laptop is the main reason, don't go. If you think you're being wise and saving anything by spending 350$ on a weekend trip to BKK to buy a laptop, you're severely mistaken. Even when I worked out the tax refund it didn't appear much cheaper in Thailand, especially given the hassle and all. I'll dig up the name of the shop I bought at. Good experience and they formatted it for me again free of charge after I screwed up my laptop two weeks after buying it by trying to encrypt some partitions. O did notice their external hard drives were more expensive than other shops though. It pays to shop around.
