with an untimely traditional name translated as “Korean Star/Planet”, HanSung Computer started getting attention with unconventionally cheap computers and laptops or notebooks from 2007 . it is now a very popular brand and aptly the only reason why everyone is NOT flocking to its lucrative price is the understandably solemn design (express in a positive way for basic or even cheap) as well as loose product support .
they are currently providing CPU or HDD hard disk drive upgrades on certain models, but it seems selectively offered from limited sellers and sometimes even BOTH upgrades ! one caveat is that you have to search each vendors On-Line for there are no central information system nor promotional sites that list what sells where ..
here are examples of two popular new releases, with lowest prices from larger discount outlets On-Line :
