Neo Laptop Review or lack thereof

Ken Castro from Quezon City emailed us this question last night:

"Dear TechPinas, what can you say about Neo laptops? I'm thinking about purchasing a unit but I don't really know anyone who owns one and as such, I don't have anyone guiding me on this. Care to share what you know about Neo notebooks? Thanks"

Hi Ken! Thanks for the inquiry!

To be honest with you, Ken, I haven't had enough experience (2-3 weeks minimum) with any Neo unit. Hence, as of the moment, I am not in the position to give you a decent review about the user experience.

I'd love to review a unit in the future though. Neo is perhaps the biggest 100% Pinoy laptop manufacturer in the country today and, as part of our mission to promote Pinoy Pride and support Pinoy companies, TechPinas would love to review Neo laptops like how we do notebooks by foreign companies.

If you are really itching to read more about Neo user experience though, I found this article from Philippine Laptops complete with reader comments. Read on. :)

  1. Neo Service Sucks!

  2. you are right Anon. Don't be fooled on buying because of cheap price. check few brands before buying

  3. a neo user.. i have a neo vivid v3163... i think its good enough for me... after lookin for an array of choices with a limited budget, i think its the best for me (again, with the alloted budget)... its convenient cos its not that big and bulky, yet its good.. with 2gig of ram..and 300g of hd... infact, i upgraded mine from vista to windows 7..and it just became cooler...

  4. my sis is using the last 2years ago neo laptop brand, till now she's using it and there is no problem, with a little patience on the battery but still ok, i just bought a new one with much more modern and advanced i use it for a year already, no problem encountered even a bit, i once dropped it on the floor still good, fast performance, i love my neo!
