The Pros And Cons Of Going For Second Hand Technology

if you are the kind of person who want to be seen as the person who is up to date an all the technological jargon out there in today’s world then you also need to be having that extra heavy wallet in order to bale to afford all of it. Because the buying the latest technology is not a piece of cake. They are very expensive and very high maintenance. But if you are the kind of person who can afford it then there is absolutely nothing wrong in going out there and buying the latest laptop, phone or tablet when they come on the market. But for the rest of us we may have to wait till they become old editions in order to purchase them. But where is the thrill in that right?

The solution

So one solution to our problem would be to opt for second hand items. Because there are some crazy people out there who are rolling in money and they buy all the latest tech stuff just for the fun of it and want to get rid of it within a month or two of purchase. And second hand tech stuff is like hot cakes unlike something like used forklifts which will not sell that easily. So even if you are a month or two behind schedule it doesn’t really matter. Because once you own it you will still be able to carry off the tech savvy image that you want to portray. And who wouldn’t want to buy something for half its original price when the item is in absolutely perfect condition.

But there are dangers

Because unlike a forklift for sale technology can have some hidden tricks. Which don’t exactly become visible to us immediately. For example you buy a mobile phone, and the first you look at it before purchase you don’t exactly have the opportunity to check out how all the applications are functioning and so on. So you just end up checking the basics and making the payment because you think the item is in good working condition. But it is only once you have started using it for few weeks that you realize you can’t upload photographs on certain applications or a certain key is not working on the keypad. These are all hidden trouble that does not surface immediately. And the biggest negative point is that there is no warranty that accompanies second hand buys. Therefore you need to pay for any repairs that pop up by yourself even if the repair has to be don the next day after the purchase. So sometime sit can pay off and you go on boasting about the excellent buy you made and other times it doesn’t, and you end up lamenting about the money that just went down the drain.
