Most tech-savvy people don’t really notice Neo when looking for a laptop even though they have the most affordable price in the market. But when you see a 14-inch quad-core laptop go for as low as Php25k and you can get rid of your aging laptop, people will bound to notice.
The Neo B5702 is a quad-core laptop that is powered by the 2nd generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core i7-2630QM (2GHz) processor. Not the old Core i7 mind you. It is a full-sized 14-inch laptop packed with a 4GB RAM, 640GB hard drive and all the basic ports you need on your laptop.
It does however, comes with only Windows Home Basic as its OS. Not sure if it’s 32-bit but see if the Neo store can hook you up with a 64-bit to make full use of the Core i7 and the 4GB RAM. Then it doesn’t have any sort of discrete graphics so it’s not suitable as a gaming laptop. It works well though for multimedia editing thanks to its true quad core. The SRP of the Neo B5702 is at Php34,999.
Ok so what do you need to do to get it at the Php24,999 price? Here’s the important part so read carefully:
If you have an old Neo, working or not, you can have it trade in and get the Php10,000 discount. However, if you have a different brand laptop, again working or not, you can still trade it in for an Php8,000 discount. This trade-in period has a small window, from November 4 to 7, so better act fast. You can only avail of this promo at the Neo showrooms in SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Cebu, and NCCC Davao.
