Total Cost for Kohjinsha SH6 If I Ordered Today
August 18, 2007
I still haven’t made a decision on my next UMPC but I wanted to see how much it would actually cost for me to order and upgrade a Kohjinsha SH6.
I went to Conics.net and went through the checkout process. My order was a SH6, Black, 40GB, 512KB RAM, Vista Home, no DVD’s, and an extended battery. Basically, the lowest priced configuration plus the extended battery.
I figured I could upgrade the RAM and hard drive myself. If I were to buy from Conics, I’d like the total cost to be as low as possible due to shipping and Pay Pal charges. The total ended up $1193.05.
I then went to Newegg.com and did the same with a 2 GB RAM stick and a 2.5″ 160GB PATA drive. The total cost for that with shipping would be $228.05.
So for a SH6 with 2GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, it would cost $1421.10. I would be left with a 512MB RAM stick and a 40GB hard drive after all is said and done. I would probably install Vista Business since I can get that from work for free. Or maybe try installing the XP Tablet Edition recovery disk for the Samsung Q1.
Now, if I chose to buy a 32GB SSD drive instead (at moment, going for $649 at Newegg.com. Wow that’s expensive), the total from Newegg.com would be $823.92 for grand total of $2016.97.
That’s a bit too much for me. But let’s say I went the same route but ordered through Conics. SH6, Black, 32GB SSD, 2 GB RAM upgrade, Vista Premium, and the extended battery.
