26 November 2015 - Hong Kong is a city famous for its unparalleled convenience, with all that you need generally within arm’s reach. That being said, some commodities are concentrated in well-known hotspots, allowing you to find what you are searching for in at least one of the similarly themed agglomerated stores. This article highlights key locations for purchasing electronics, as well as nearby housing options for those keen on regularly viewing the latest tech products and being first in line for the newest gadgets and deals.
If you are interested in purchasing computers and electronics outside of popular retailers such as Fortress, Broadway and Apple stores across Hong Kong, or you are looking for increased customization and more affordable gear, spare parts and cables, then you need to be shopping at: Sham Shui Po, Mong Kok, or Wan Chai. These three locations are all considered to be computer and electronic hotspots, with small “malls” selling a variety of goods that range from monitors and cables, to desktops and high-end audio equipment. If you have electronics in need of repair, there are also a few shops that will be able to help fix them for a bargain! 
Sham Shui Po:
Sham Shui Po is home to the Golden Computer Arcade and Golden Centre, both of which are large computer centers located within the vicinity of the MTR station. Out of the three hotspots, Sham Shui Po is potentially the most famous due to low prices that compare very favorably to elsewhere in HK. 
If you are looking to rent an apartment near this district, areas like Shek Kip Mei and Mei Foo are popular choices and are often preferable to Sham Shui Po itself, with Sham Shui Po being quite congested and consisting mainly of neighborhoods of older buildings.
Since Shek Kip Mei and Mei Foo have their own MTR stations, Sham Shui Po is only a few minutes away.
Shek Kip Mei boasts a number of luxury apartment complexes such as Beacon Heights, Dynasty Heights, and Tropicana, while Mei Foo is mostly comprised of a large private housing estate called the Mei Foo Sun Chuen. This estate consists of 99 towers, making it one of the largest private housing estates in Hong Kong. It is equipped with a plethora of communal amenities including its own shopping venue, food outlets, schools, and medical clinics that make it an ideal place to live if you want to live close to Sham Shui Po. 
Mong Kok: 
Mong Kok also boasts its own computer centre. The Mong Kok Computer Centre features over 70 different retailers that offer all the products available at Sham Shui Po. 
Some great deals can be found for cheaper housing in Mong Kok but the district is famous for being one of Hong Kong’s most crowded, and not so agreeable with those looking for a more relaxed lifestyle. Tsim Sha Tsui and Kowloon Station are two relatively close by districts that feature high-rise, luxury apartment complexes with extensive clubhouse facilities. Examples of such developments include the Cullinan and the Waterfront at Kowloon Station, and the Masterpiece above K11 in TST.
Located on Hong Kong Island, the 298 Computer Centre and the Wan Chai Computer Centre are in every respect comparable to the computer centres found in Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po, though with slightly higher prices.
Wan Chai does not suffer from the same level of congestion as the aforementioned two areas, and is home to a number of high-rise modern apartments including the Convention Plaza Apartments on Harbour Road and The Zenith on Wan Chai Road, as well as older low-rise and mid-rise blocks.
