can someone give me advice on buying a small laptop in Koh Samui? Is there a good place to go?

I am going to Thailand for a while and want to get a small laptop. Can you recommend somewhere to buy one in Koh Samui that is a reputable place to go with competitve prices?

My advice would be not to buy it at all in Thailand and especially Koh Samui. In most cases the cost of a computer in Thailand would be higher than your home country. Also the fact that most computers here are sold with no OS but they will supply an unlicensed copy which in some cases had files missing and course many problems. You will also have to be sure that the computer is under warrenty if you take it back home.

    I don’t know where you are from, but Koh Samui is not like that. The main commercial area is small and generally on the East side of the island around the airport. There’s a Tesco in Ang Thong area West side, but basically if it is not a bar, resort, gift shop, or restaurant it is not there. There is a small computer shop, but it will be safer and less hassle to bring what you need. Thailand has single wire 220v power, so with the right plug adapter my US Hewlett-Packard works fine.
