Quote from paulhenta View Post :
+1, as the few past years have proven and as the release cycles are very predictable, tech builders became pretty savvy. Usually as soon as you see a flow of "refurbished items" or "used" pumped into the market regularly going lower and lower a few months before a new version is going out, you can safely buy, yo might find it a few $ cheaper but rarely way cheaper. today for an ultrabook, the tendency is between $400 (low end) and $700 (high end) for a current generation

Apple as usual might be a rare exception and tend to less lower their old product prices but still do on a longer period of time.
yes, both the cycle, and prices are fairly predictable. it aint hard to see that, but for some people they obviously have no idea.
do you eat poop?

I like to swim in it
