March will always hold a special place in the hearts of tech lovers and fans. The unassuming month has nothing directly related to actual tech devices though, but more so that many of these companies finish their financial year in the first quarter of the new year.
This basically means that tech companies will attempt to clear inventory of older products, to make way for a selection of new products. And what better way, than by slashing prices for their existing inventory. And this translates into the best deals to spice up your home office, living room or game console, or a time to simply upgrade your gadgets that aren’t working as well.
But what happens when you don’t really want to crowd showrooms and event halls filled with deals and thousands of people? Well, why risk heading out (not that there are any physical events to attend) when you can do it safely in the comfort of your home?
That’s right, Lazada’s highly sought after Online Tech Show is making a return this year for all your tech needs, from 11 to 15 March 2021, and boy do they have a long list of hot deals, exciting exclusives and new launches, including more than S$15,000 worth of prizes to be won! The top 3 prizes include the PRISM+ Q75 4K Android TV, Samsung Galaxy Note20 LTE, and HP Pavilion Laptop 15-eh0074AU.
But we hear you – buying gadgets online is one thing, but what if you want a tech demo to see and hear the performance of what you’re buying?
