    Hi guys i just came back from "Telecom and IT Expo 2006" Bangalore.
    exibition is not a huge one but its ok. I saw a Big Apple Pavilion there and there was this cute imac like looking thing i saw their broucher and was shocked to see the price Rs.6995 and you get a full computer.
    The PC tough not powerfull but is enough for bare minimum nessaties like browsing, watching movies, playing mp3 etc . its a prefect gift for school children who cant afford a normal computer

    the upgrade plans are also not that expensive. there is no inbuilt CD drive but they provide a external CDRW for Rs 1999.



    I took some photos from my cell cam. Sorry for the low resolution pictures.

    This is not a powerful computer but it will be useful for schools who cannot afford a bigger PC.

    EDIT: Updated Price : Rs. 3495/-

    These ppl sell all old junk from US at dirt cheap prices. good location to buy for all the ppl who cant afford a new 21" color monitor or a new laser printer etc. their office is behind HDFC bank at Pradise in Secunderabad.

    If Steve Jobs finds this out, he may file a lawsuit against this so called Big Apple company for using their name.

    i dont think he can do that for a simple reason, apple also happens to be name of a fruit, and moreover the lawsuit will be filed in india, so nothing can be done....

    Kniwor, Apple is a registered trademark in India as well.

    And as for suing, they're in the same line of business and use a very similar name. So, they can sue them.

    But, do big companies care about small dealers? If they start suing people, they won't do anything else :p

    You know not everyone is RIAA or MPAA i.e. there are some sane ppl left in this world.

    This is good for those who only need office (word, powerpint) or internet work. Surely not for gaming. Butstill looks good atthis price for village schools or students- to spread computer literacy

    i doubt if they sue them it will reach any conclusion in india...

    but u made a better point.. apple could not care less about there small vendors...
    it would probably sue M$ if it ised apple for some reason....

    Hello All

    there is nothing like big apple computers, those pc's are INTEL.DOT STATIONS
    these are second hand/used/refurbished pc's from spain, those were introduced by Intel in europe market only, big apple has purchased them from spain, landing cost in india of this pc is somewhere around 3500/-, this are best for thin client applications, big apple is just selling them as branded computers so nothing to do it Apple or Mac. you can search in google for INTEL.DOT STATIONS to get more info
    here are few links
