I am not sure about other countries. But I can tell you in Singapore, there are 4 IT shows in a whole year, 1 show in every quarter (March, June, September and December). The usual locations for the shows are either at Singapore Expo or Suntec Convention Centre. Some of the laptops or desktop models are selling at a cut-throat discount and on top of that, the dealers are throwing in a lot of freebies too.
Usually I would advice you to have an idea on what are you looking for. Example if you are looking for a laptop deal, go there early and browse around to check out the price first. After that look for a place and sit down to go through the pamphlets and compare. Make a decision and go straight to the booth, buy and leave the place.
