Dear Gulf Shadows Customers ,
We have seen during the past two months the retreat of the sandy bridge intel processors and becoming as EOL (End Of Life)products
still Intel is releasing to the distributors quantities of G2020, G2030, I3 3220 I3 3240. We can clearly see that these quantities are now becoming very less .
instead of around 40k release per month to less than 15k expected this month and so the prices logically should increase on these items.and we can see that these products prices have increased in Hong Kong and the supply is less during a a still healthy demand .on the otherhand the G41 motherboards stocks are also becoming less in the market as already the
supply and demand was less than the history supply of such transient stage . the H61 mother board prices are now at 32$ replacing the segment of G41 pricing .and so for new demand
of mainboards , it will go to the H61 for all I3 and above products .Conclusion : If you have sandy bridge support mainboards ,better to buy your cpu now than to wait
as the prices will go higher and availability less . Gulf Shadows has stocks of G2020 and very limited G2030,I3 3220 I3 3240 . If you are looking for cheapest possible PC . we have
the G40 QDS mainboard plus the Pentium E2180 dual core processor for 43$ bundle .and this is on EOL basis as well . Do not stock the Sandy bridge as the demand will die faster than
it did for Pentium processors .
May Allah be with you ..
Dear Gulf Shadows Customers:
During the past two months we noticed a high supply of all notebook brands relative to the demand, Prices falling more than it should at this time of year.
Now the demand has just picked up and prices started to stabilize.
Gulf shadows has good stocks of Acer, HP, Dell and Very Limited stock of Toshiba, We expect HP to gain more market share as Toshiba reducing supply.
Prices are expected to be stable if not going up, so don’t be conservative in purchasing as the season has started.
Gulf Shadows has exclusively Toshiba i3 Shared with Win8 and Acer Celeron Dos during October.
May Allah be With You.

Beginning of Q2 2014 we observed price increment in DRAM modules, due to the difficulties faced by suppliers in transitioning towards 2xnm technology.
DRAM prices reached highest level on 18th July, however prices started slightly drop further till today due to many reasons such as the unexpected reduction Notebook shipments in Q2 and Q3 and the relatively reduction in China smartphone market, which lead to lower the demand and oversupply in memory chips.
Suppliers expecting increment in demand specially with the new generation lunching from Apple and Samsung smart phones which requires higher capacities of memory, however prices still stable and the trend is slightly down.
I advise to keep maximum one to two weeks stock for 4GB and 8GB modules, while for 2GB you can keep more as the prices reached the limit down.
