You guys should have asked if you wanted someone, who is actually living in Taipei, to attend Computex. I would have been more than glad to have done it. :P Or to at least assit.

Thanks guys :D

UkJenT, OCC obviously needed to send a staff member. Plus, it wasn't just the show, there were some factory tours on the mainland as well, which you'll be seeing coverage of soon.

Nice Coverage Kash! Although I have to say, the manufacturers are lame, most of the stuff you saw was already at the CeBit in March :P

That Gigabyte Memory heatsink takes the cake though :lol:
