Noticed that there are two kinds of gadget buyers — one that frequently buys stuff but on a small scale and the ones who seldom buys one but spends top dollar on an item.
The second type tends to have a long-term plan for their purchases — maybe a 17-inch souped-up Macbook Pro worth Php200k that will last them in the next 3 to 5 years.
The first type tends to settle for the entry-level Macbook (~Php50k) because they’re already thinking of getting a refresh or upgrade in the next 12 to 18 months.
The first type looks at resale value more while the second type looks at extended warranty.
Was wondering if this classification works for the majority of consumers. Maybe if I asked them what’s the most expensive gadget they bought, it would us a better insight.
Let’s try that, shall we? What’s the most expensive gadget you bought and when did you got it?
Mine’s the Canon EOS 7D I bought back in February 2010 so I’m not very sure if I’m type 1 or type 2.
