When it comes to shopping for tech gadgets, I’m not a roller, i.e., a high-roller. I tend to consider previous-gen SKUs that are fit for purpose. If they are priced at a bargain, that will seal the deal in less than a New York minute!
My personal shopping mantra:- Fit for purpose; value for money. Best if it’s gifted to you.
