When it comes to tech shopping, sometimes it pays to wait for a new-and-improved model. But this fall, too much procrastination will turn you into a high-tech Hamlet wondering whether to be or not to be a Galaxy S III owner while your digital Denmark rots. Here are 10 products you can pull the trigger on today, without regretting your decision six months or a year from now when the next big thing arrives.
Even if you use a laptop all day, you need not just one but two or full-size monitors on your desk at home and at the office. The more pixels you have, the more productive you’ll be, so grab yourself two 1080p screens for each of your work desks.
You can find inexpensive 23-inch, 1920 x 1080 screens for as little as $130. However, I recommend spending a few bucks extra to get an LED-backlit monitor ($150 and up) or around $300 to get a 1920 x 1200 resolution monitor, if you can afford it. Though we may see more touch screen displays in 2013, today’s monitors will serve you well many years after your PC goes to the recycling bin in the sky -- and they’re not getting any cheaper.
