What Malaysians can buy instead of an iPhone 6

what malaysians can buy
A standard 16GB iPhone 6 currently cost RM2,400 without any contracts. If you get the one under a contract, you will still need to fork out the same amount of money. 
Well, with RM2,400 on hand, there are a lot of things you can actually do/buy here in Malaysia.

1. A PlayStation 4 (RM1,366) and a Samsung 40″ LED TV (RM988) for your room

6. You can buy a USED motorcycle – Example: Used 2009 Suzuki Shogun motorcycle that only cost RM2,288 NEGOTIABLE!

7. If you spend RM100 on average for petrol…That’s RM400 a month…RM400 X 6 = RM2,400 which is equivalent to a price of an iPhone 6. In other words, instead of buying an iPhone 6, you can fill your car tank for 6 months

8. Or you can pay for your toll for the next 16 months

For instance if you pay RM5 daily on tolls. That’s RM150 per month. RM2,400/150 = 16 months!!

9. If you spend most of the time in your room, you can get yourself a brand new air-conditioner (RM800) and still manage to pay for the electricity consumption for 3 years

The calculation below is for a 1 HP air-conditioner:
1HP = 765W(watt).
TNB (Tenaga Nasional Berhad) charges you RM0.218 per kWh for the first 200 kWh per month.
1HP = 0.746kWh.
0.746kWh X RM0.218 = RM0.16 per hour for a 1HP air conditioner.
If you use the air-conditioner averagely 8 hours per day: RM0.16 X 8 Hours = RM1.28 per day X 30 days = RM38.4 per month X 12 = RM460.8.
RM2,400 – RM800 (Air-Conditioner price) = RM1,600/460.8 = 3.47 or 3 Years 5 Months and 6 Days.

10. Or you can just save the money in your bank..since we always complain “no money”
