Makcik PC, I was laughed when I heard that word came out from Malaysia Prime Minister mouth when he launched this Makcik PC at Putra World Trade Center in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. I don’t know why the developer, MIMOS, named the world slimmest PC as Makcik PC. Why not name it with other coolest name such as myPC or myComp or anything that relates to Malaysia.
Anyway, here are some of Makcik PC specs:
- Price RM500 – RM1000
- Weight about 800gram
- Built in Flash memory
- Touch screen (no keyboard)
- 16in wide screen
- Easy accessiable
- Equipped with WiFi, Bluetooth, WiMax
The purpose Malaysia release this Makcik PC is because we want to reduce the technology gaps between town and outside-town areas. We want all Malaysians will able to have a PC in home. Maybe that is why MIMOS want to use Makcik PC for the branding because their targeted customers are peoples who live outside town.
But I am still thinking that the price is not cheap. As we know, not many peoples who live in village and outside town have high incomes. Maybe they need to reduce the price a little bit if they really want all Malaysians can afford a PC. Anyway, I still support Malaysia even we called this slimmest PC in the world as Makcik PC. I know it is not easy to develop a PC by our own. But at least we have something that we can start with. Maybe after this we can do more researches and develop an advance PC based from Makcik PC.
How about you? What is your opinion? Will you buy this PC for your family?
