Is there any way of knowing when the "Best Time" is to buy the above, like the spring sales etc; I know Christmas is a favourite time, do manufacturers launch a new product at certain times of the year or after it has been on the market a particular time?
I ask because I hope to visit the UK soon and if possible would like to avoid buying something and then find a new version has been/is to be launched.
The best time to buy is when you actually need it. You know the saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". There are plenty of bargains out there all the time. I would have to say that Christmas would be the one time to stay away from, prices are almost always inflated. A good site to compare prices is click here but they only compare between the BIG companies. Some smaller places like click here or click here have bargains/special offers running all the year round.
Make up your mind exactly what will suit your requirements for a reasonable period to come, select a system that's currently on sale and then wait for the price to drop - you won't have to wait too long.
Computer system price reductions are, in the majority of cases, due to a new, faster processor coming out, resulting in the price of current versions being lowered by Intel or AMD to suppliers.
Yes, I have to agree with wee eddie. I bought a new printer for £149 and two months later it was £89. It's like the Lottery. Don't check your tickets if you never entered them, because you will always find that if you had entered them you would have won.
