I was having a debate with my roommate about when's the best time to buy electronics (he just bought a ridiculous tv and now my boyfriend's begging for one). He says you should buy when you need it and just get the newest, most expensive one with the best quality and that way it will remain technologically relevant longer. I would rather wait out the trends, see which one has the least problems, and then buy it when it goes on sale (and usually when the next round of advancements come along). Since technology is rapidly changing, I'd rather save the money than feel like I wasted it six months later on a bug-ridden system. This was mostly in regards to LCD vs. plasma, but I usually apply this to computers, DVD players, etc. Thoughts?
