How is upcoming budget going to effect computer prices in local market

i want to to buy a 500 gb hard drive and a lcd

i wonder how is the upcoming budget going to effect computer prices in local market

in pakistan.

should i just go ahead and get these items before the budget comes or....

will they be more expensive??

Today is budget,just wait and see. I personally expect prices of LCDs might go down as it had been suggested to the ministry that they consume less energy so LCDs should be encouraged rather then CRTs.

Hardisks will likely have duties in slabs:

20GB and 40GB will be duty free - the poor man's choice they will call it.

80-160GB will be for average user with duties at 25%.

250GB to 1.5TB will be classed a luxury item with 300% duties.

[/sarcasm]

We have democrazy now. Yay for the impending craziness with the most corrupt president we have ever had aided by a puppet PM!

In this case, I should ditch 80GBs from my RAID 5 array and build it on 40GB :P

Sadly graphics cards wont benifit from this.

Idhar local logic is in MBs of cards ... usual shops will say 8500GT 1GB to a 8800GT 512 ... and there best seller would still be the Geforce FX5500 AGP ...

:P

wtf…this is bullshit :mad:

Just saw it on tv, they have suggested to impose export duty on Software exports . What kind of stupid government would impose duties and taxes on software export and discourage and make it totally unattractive and uncompetitive

They can’t do that. Why about tax holiday on software sales and export. They’ll ruin the remaining software industry (that is already on death bed).

so the budget has finally come, what do you guys think????

Thinking to leave PAKISTAN kekek !

any tax on making partitions more than 30 gb :) ??

Nah, Mr. 100% is not interested in HDD clusters. He is interested in real money. Cash is much better. :)

There must be some 20 paisa tax on each partition you make in your HDD :P

^lol :D
