But let’s go back further…back in 2005 or so I decided I needed an MP3 player.
Although the original decision was fairly simple it became complicated quite quickly.
The mini was superseded by the nano. A further decision was required.
Go for the nano, or go up to the 20 Gb iPod.
That is were all the trouble started. I had a budget. But for just a little more you get so much more capacity for your money, and features.
(This is a frequent pattern when buying many things, flash drives, food, bargains…)
My current debate is in relation to tablets.
Do I need one? Would a netbook be a smarter option? I already have a laptop and a smart phone, isn’t this just overkill?
I managed to come up with some brilliant rationalisations to get past most of these objections.
(Might still end up buying a netbook at sometime in the future….)
So, having moved on from all the basic questions and having decided that a tablet is allowed, which one to choose?
Of course, the iPad must be considered. iTunes notwithstanding it is the most popular and well-known tablet to date.
Asus Transformer Prime – love the keyboard dock, but doesn’t that start edging into the netbook area?
Top of the line for most items, but does not include 3G capability…
Hmm, I am sure I will make a decision eventually.
Ooh, when is the Kindle Fire available in Australia?
