    When do you all buy new electronics, TV, Laptop, Desktop, DVD player...

    As the title, I just wondered when everyone buys new electronics, do you run yours into the ground then replace them, or do you upgrade every year to get the newest available?

    The reason I ask is i'm thinking of getting a new laptop, with the one i currently use being 2 yers old...is this normal?

    mine have to die, then i buy

    2 years isn't abnormal for a laptop - any less would seem a bit daft if the old one still worked, 3 years is perhaps the 'standard' upgrade time. To be honest not that much has changed in 2 years - what improvement are you expecting?

    You ask this to some of the obsessesive buyers on here who by there own admission, buy anything cheap :w00t: whether needed or not :whistling:

    had my laptop almost 5yrs I've replaced the motherboard myself in that time as it got a crack in it. Got a PC that I keep updating though and wouldn't ever dream of playing games on a laptop just not made for it.

    I normally upgrade when it stops doing what i want it to do or doesnt doo it efficiently enough for example; when i bought an xbox the tv i was using didnt provide a great picture therefore i bought a new tv with HDMI so i could play in HD. :thumbsup: New mobile everytime i get bored of the one i have though which is like every 4-8months. Laptop i would just run into the ground and keep on downloading software updates and things for it.

    Normally until they die. But I keep buying new iPod's because I lie the new features...lol
