To help you with this, here are some recommended places that could save you from wasting your money on fake products.
1. Sim Lim Square
You cannot afford to miss this place if you are tech savvy customer. I would advice you to start from the uppermost floors because the most authentic stuff and reliable retailers are on the top floors, and work your way downwards.
Try to negotiate when the salesman, if he doesn’t agree or you don’t get the deal of your choice, feel free to walk away. There is a fair chance that they will call you back and offer you a better offer. However, if you are a first timer, do tag along with someone who knows the place, would be economical for you. And don’t forget to check the online prices as you make the deal.
2. IT Shows
