VR3 can play games maaaaa........

Saw 1 unit of Sol kat Sealantis yesterday.... retail at RM7300 if not mistaken... VR3 full specs if ot mistaken is more than RM10k. Alcheapo way is to cut table from V-Planner & copy onto yr slate. Same algorithm as VR3...

Thanks guys, i was just considering to get either one. But Jim's comment is true. We can do that. but only thing is that it has the heart beat compression rate that will enable the unit to calculate close to accurate decompression rate. Digital compass, where as the VR3 hasn't got this option. Further more, i can get it off at RM 6,440.00

Scorpenesub has a point, save up for trips, but bro...i was only thinking of a long time investment. (NOT sure how stable is the unit though!!!)

Memphisto, SOL is the new D.C in the market now, to me it looks appealing. cun gak ar. only harga on a steep high side lar.

dikiz.m.s, a very good price for the Sol would be RM5,850. I think the price is doable for some retailers based on 20% discount from recommended retail price. Bargain harder if you are buying it....

Hi Big Brother Zaha, Long time haven't heard from you. How are you? How is Sara and How is your baby coming along?

Geng, nak tunggu DEMA kat Orlando tuh cam berat ar pulak...nak gi sana lagi. Kalau you can get on behalf pun ok gak lah...but still nak kena tengok gak ar price plus delivery charges, plus wire transfer charges etc.

Wife is doing well. I am doing well. Thank you for your concern. Lama lah tak jumpa you.

Anyway, email me on your response on our TOP SECRET topic the other day. Hehehehe. Didn't receive any feedback pun from you. Hehehehehe. By the way, what are your comments on the two option i posted.

Regards,

P.S: The other day you posted a picture of Buddy Inspiration in your baby's court, is that your new toy? Jealous lak lah....

Take care bro.
