You’d often hear someone wanting to buy a laptop and getting told “eh, wait for PC Fair”. But PC Fairs were one of the things we had to wave goodbye to during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gone for now is that feeling of security we get when seeing and feeling our expensive tech before taking the plunge and purchasing it. 

HP’s Virtual Showroom addresses this concern, bringing us their PC and Print products in a virtual apartment, with six themed experience rooms that focus on gaming and productivity, among other things. Should you want to purchase a product, you’ll be directed to the HP Store at Lazada.
