    Why don't you get yourself to Sham Shui Po, MTR Exit D, Golden Arcade Computer Center.

    There are a couple of notebook and Asus stores in the 1/F. So you have to walk around the corner to get to the 1/F entrance (walk towards McDonalds on the side of the Golden Arcade, turn right around the corner and enter right behind the news stand), up the escalators.

    Wan Chai computer market, Mong Kok computer centre, Golden Computer Arcade in Sham Shui Po.

    SSP is the biggest, followed by Wan Chai. Mong Kok is pretty small in comparison.

    From my limited experience with purchasing a laptop in HK, you don't get to haggle on the price, but you can get them to throw in freebies like USB memory sticks, laptop bags, mouse, etc.

    There's a difference in buying stuff in HK in a store and in market/stall. You can always try, no harm in it.
