I have been using my computer since I bought it brand new in 2003. Right now, I am concerning that my computer is out of date to upgrade for HD perfomance (HDTV, blu-ray, etc). I am still going for PS3 to save the budget since I am more a movie buff than HDTV.
Anyway, I am still wonder what year or when will be the best time to get a brand new computer? My mistake with my computer in 2003 was that I didn't know about PCI-Express coming out in 2004. I wouldn't like to buy a new computer then figure it was the last generation, so I'd prefer to buy a computer that last long to 10 years with any upgrade.
Next month something new will come out. Followed by something else new in 2 more months.
The time to buy a new computer is now. Next week you'll get a better deal on the same parts. The week after that you'll get a better deal. If you wait a year, the parts you were going to buy today will all be obsolete.
^hmm, i agree and disagree. sometimes its better to wait than other times. sometimes its better to buy now than other times. it all depends on the parts, expected parts, prices, and time. oh and cash too
I'd start making preparations for parts and whatnot so that you can watch prices and pull the trigger when you see good deals. Online retailers have random deals and there's always the big ones like black friday, digital monday and boxing day.
