Dell Vostro 1700 laptop arrived today, delivered by Forexworld

December 27th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Vostro 1700 has finally arrived in my office today. A friend in the US ordered this laptop for me from Dell last October 10 and received it on October 30. Then on November 9 he sent the laptop in a balikbayan box package through Forexworld. Forexworld, btw, is a shipping company with headquarters in the US that ships packages to the Philippines. It took 48 days to deliver the package from Forexworld warehouse to my address. It came earlier than I expected. The shipping costs $135 only and I didn’t have to pay any taxes since it is in a balikbayan box. At first I was hesitant to send this through a balikbayan box but Forexworld did a good job on delivering my new laptop in one piece. :)

    Ahh great one! How much did you pay for it, Luc?

    And oh when are you going to Singapore?

    $894+$135 shipping. I’ll post a quick review regarding this laptop when I find some free time.
