7 great deals from the IT Show 2016
Techies will be flocking to Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre to score the best deals from the IT Show from Thursday (March 10) to Sunday (March 13).
With levels 3, 4 and 6 packed with the latest tech, there's bound to be something for everyone.
We've run through some of the best deals and singled out seven of them based on who you are or who you're buying them for.
THE STUDENT: DELL XPS 13 ULTRABOOK
Price: $1,699 (usual price $1,899)
Freebies: Wireless mouse, leather sleeve case (for first 30 customers), Microsoft Office Personal 365
With many a rave review, the Dell XPS 13 was one of the best ultrabooks released in 2015.
This 13-inch laptop incorporates a breathtaking, almost bezel-less Infinity Display and powerful specifications into a razor thin chassis that feels smaller than most laptops of its size class. It also has a carbon fibre palm rest for added comfort.
While you might need to invest in an adapter if you're going to use it for presentations, the 1.2g XPS 13 looks like a real steal at $200 off its usual retail price.
THE GYM RAT: TOMTOM SPARK GPS FITNESS WATCH
Price: From $199 to $349 ($50 off all usual prices)
With four different models to choose from, TomTom's line of Spark GPS fitness watches will allow you to choose the functions you want based on your budget.
The most basic Spark weighs in at a very affordable $199 while the other models feature either a heart rate monitor, music player or both.
Fashionistas might have to look elsewhere, but with a $50 discount across the board, the Spark looks like a great deal if you're looking to get into the fitness tracking game.
Do note that the music player versions require wireless headphones, which you can buy with the watch for $349 (Spark Music) and $429 (Spark Cardio + Music).
THE ADRENALINE JUNKIE: CURVE PRESTIGE 100 ACTION CAMERA

Price: $179 (usual price $289)
Freebies: 32GB Class 10 micro SD Card, foldable 40L travel backpack
With $110 knocked off its retail price, the Curve Prestige 100 will surely give adrenaline junkies a buzz at this year's IT Show.
At 80g with its waterproof casing, the Prestige 100 is lightweight and compact to help you capture all your action shots without really letting you know it's there.
It also comes with a relatively large 1.5-inch LCD screen, allowing you to aim and shoot HD videos at 30 frames per second or snap 16-megapixel photos.
If the $110 discount wasn't enough, purchasing the Prestige 100 will give you access to other discounts for products from Maka GPS Technologies.
THE MOTORIST: MARBELLA LX5 FULL HD DUAL CAM CORDER

Price: $259 (usual price $329)
Freebies: 32GB micro SD card, Bluetooth speakers, in-car splitter
The Marbella LX5 IT Show deal is definitely a one for car owners looking to cover themselves in the unfortunate case of an accident.
The two-camera set-up allows you to capture footage while you're on the road while a nifty impact gravity sensor will trigger the front camera to automatically capture and save up 60 seconds of footage during a collision.
The function will do so even if the camera loses power, thanks to a 500mAh battery.
With more than $200 worth of savings and freebies – which goes up to $249.90 if you're among the first 50 customers each day to snag a free HDMI cable – the LX5 is a no-brainer in terms of value if you're looking for dashboard camera system.
THE GAMER: XBOX ONE
Price: From $539 ($100 off for first 50 customers per retailer, $70 off thereafter)
If you've been itching to get an Xbox One, now's a chance to do so.
Microsoft is offering a $100 discount for its various bundles for the current generation console to the first 50 customers at each of its participating retailers.
Even if you miss out, don't fret – each customer thereafter will receive a $70 discount.
FOR GRANDMA & GRANDPA: AC RYAN MOMENT WIRELESS KARAOKE SOUNDBAR

Price: $399 (usual price $599)
Your song list will never be outdated again with this modern take on the home karaoke system.
Unlike traditional home karaoke set-ups that require constant updating, Moment lets you belt out your favourite KTV numbers via wireless streaming from apps like YouTube and Spotify.
With a nice $200 taken off the original price, this would make a great present for seniors who love nothing better than a crooning sessions with their kakis.
Just make sure they know how to operate it.
THE LITTLE ONES: SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S2
Price: $498 (usual price $598)
Freebie: Samsung book cover
If you're looking for the ultimate distraction for your child – a tablet, in other words – you might want to consider the Galaxy Tab S2.
Samsung has slashed $100 off the tablet's four variants for the IT Show, with the eight-inch Wi-Fi version in particular catching the eye.
Comparable with Apple's iPad mini tablets, the Galaxy Tab S2 is perfect for carrying around to placate or distract a bawling or hyperactive child.
