OK - I want to buy something and I want to buy it as cheap as possible. Is it cheaper in the runup to Christmas - or straightafter. I can never work this out. Sorry if its so obvious to everyone else but I just can't work it out :(

Depends what it is I guess?

A lot of tat gets pumped out post Christmas in the sales, but undoubtedly there are bargains to be had too.

vilbs it can vary, high street stuff imo has great prices xmas eve even and xmas eve.
Warehouse/mail order type goods mostly good after xmas/new year.

This is from what I have seen and I assume because high street stores need to get rid of crap b4 xmas to make room for next years range and don't have the large warehouses/distribution depots of the massive stores and mail order places, but also due to massive mail/courier delays that happen over the xmas and new year holidays.

I have most of my xmas shopping done but I'm waiting for new deals and will be hitting the highstreet on the 23rd to see if I can nab anything at a nice price, not that im in major need of anything.

A relative needs a laptop which I'm hoping a post xmas deal will come, also ALOT of mobiles will be bought for xmas, so ALOT of mobiles will be returned for refund/exchange etc which = a nice choice of clearance and refurb mobiles come early January.

Thanks im after a monitor and was getting confused as to whether:
1. It's cheaper before Christmas because retailers know that everyone is buying presents and therefore getting all the prices to be as competitive as possible.

or 2. Cheaper after because the shops are getting rid of unsold stock....

Hmmmmm sounds like much of a muchness - I'll just keep on scouring this site until my wallet finger gets too itchy!

Thanks again

Well there are some excellent monitor deals around at the mo....if I wanted one I think I'd be taking the plunge now rather than wait for post Xmas deals....the sort of stuff that will be in sales will be deleted models and probably 17 inchers...everyone seemsto want 19 inches at least .

So if you tell us what you require I'm sure someone can come up with a good deal.

haha Currychops - like the name! I basically have a 17" DVI tft at the mo which is fine for sitting at the computer but it's just too small to watch films on so i'm looking for an upgrade: 20" or more and DVI with <8ms response - and yup - youve guessed it - all for buttons ;) Nah I have about £200 but I know that's tight....

WS 19's are fast all hitting the £105-£130 price range
WS 20s are still findingtheir feet @ £150-£250+ nowhere near as popular so not as competitive.

20" vs. 19" and the price difference normally found doesn't make it worth it IMHO.

Still gutted i missed that £105 Amazon 19" WS
