It’s that time of the year folks, the IT Show is coming back to town, and it’s returning bigger, better, and with better value for the dollar this year. The Trade-in Madness returns at the IT Show 2016, looking to take in your old gadgets for cash vouchers that you can spend on the biggest IT fare in town.
Every tech geek out there knows that a time comes along when their favourite gadget’s lifespan will end. If you are sentimental or budget conscious like me then you are going to probably dread the day when you have to replace your gadgets.
Fortunately, there are two things that techies love more than their old gadgets – and that’s a shiny new toy and awesome deals.
The IT Show 2016 will be partnering up with PC Dreams for this year's trade-in madness. The list this year will not only include the usual suspects like laptops, tablets, smartphones, PCs (non-DIY) and monitors – but also small TVs below 34"!
With 4K TV content becoming increasingly common, Singaporeans are flocking to upgrade their TV sets. What better time than the biggest IT show in town?
