The problem with going out and getting the latest computers is that they seem to be old the moment you leave the store with them. I have seen that Microsoft will be releasing “Vista” as a new operating system, and they’ll do it just a month after most people will be buying new computers for Christmas this year. So even though they will be getting one of the latest computers for Christmas, the operating system will be old within the matter of a month.
Perhaps this is something that Microsoft has done on purpose, though I can’t be sure. December is a big time to sell the latest computers, as many people like to get them for presents. By releasing the new operating system the next month, which means everyone who got one of the latest computers in December will have to go out and buy the upgrade if they really want it.
No matter what operating system you get, be smart when you are looking at the latest computers. They have come down in price, and you will get what you pay for. If you can go somewhere like Best Buy and compare all of the latest computers for price, features and special options, you should make sure you do so. Just because you see something at a deep discount does not mean you are going to get a quality item. The latest computers all come with different things, and you are going to be happier with what you got if you give yourself the time to find the perfect one for you and your needs.
