Default Buying Electronics is All About Timing

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://thewirecutter.com/2012/04/dont-buy-this-stuff-right-now/' target='_blank'>http://thewirecutter.com/2012/04/do...tuff-right-now/</a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1336896718.usr1.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>This article talks about the timing of purchasing electronics - there's always a cycle, and timing the cycle will get you the best products for your dollar. Sometimes that means buying at the end of a cycle, to save money, and other times it means holding off purchasing until the start of a new cycle so you can get the newest technology. Myself, I'm waiting for the release of the Panasonic VT50, a TV that was announced at CES to rave reviews. I've set aside money to make the purchase, and am patiently waiting for it to be released (should be any time now).</p><p>On the other hand, I per-ordered an HP Envy Spectre 14 the first week it was announced, knowing full well that Ivy Bridge would be coming out soon - I just wasn't expecting it to happen within 60 days of me getting my new laptop (HP just announced <a href="http://www.hp.com/united-states/campaigns/envy/index.html" target="_blank">two new Envy laptops</a>). Ultimately the new Envy laptops don't have the same screen resolution or features as mine, so my laptop wasn't replaced, but at the back of my mind I do wonder if I mis-timed the purchase...</p>
