First or last to get new technology?

Updated on October 26, 2012

You have just purchased a new laptop or desktop computer and so excited because you have purchased the newest item on the market. The next month or so you see a commercial about a new laptop with the newest software and the new laptop that you just purchased is kind of out of date according to the newest technology that has just come out.

Do you know people who have to buy the newest technology every time that a new one comes out? I know some of my friends that have just have to purchase the new cell phones, smart phones, or even computers and that is including the ipads, tablets. There are times when there is new software in these devices that they can either fail or sometimes even have a few kinks that they may still have to go through.

When it comes to new technology, I am not always in a hurry to replace what I have with a new device. I like to wait to see how they work and even read the reviews on them because there are times when each new device has its good side and bad side. Then also most of the time they are expensive at first because they have barely come out, sometimes it is worth waiting for the price to lower because of another new device will be coming out that will be more updated. Then there are times when some new devices don't always have sufficient memory as other devices would.

Being able to read reviews about the newest technology is important because most of the people will be honest about a certain product especially on how they run and how they are capable of doing their job. Sometimes being able to read reviews can help us determine whether it is worth our money to purchase the newest technology.

      I like to wait a bit of time before purchase of technology to wait for reviews and let the companies get rid of the blips in the products. Interesting discussion!
