Laptop price increase

I've noticed that similar laptops froma year ago are now higher in price,
despite the recession and lower gas prices, competition from netbooks,
mobile and slate computing.

Anyone else notice this, and if so, why do you think that is?

Thanks!

Probably because stockholders wants their money back that they lost during the downturn.

Re: Laptop price increase

What recession? The powers that be have declared it as being over already.
Of course, the powers that be all live in their own little worlds and not
in the reality the rest of us are in.

Re: Laptop price increase

Ha...well, that's always the case with the NBER. They don't declare it
until we know it's here, and they declare it over while we still are
hurting.

I seem to recall declaring it a recession on this same forum in 2007 (well
before the NBER did), and several said "it hasn't yet been declared as 2
back to back quarters of negative growth".

Didn't phase me at all!

That being said, we've had several months of back to back growth, with the
service sector surprising today. Safe to say the recession has ended, and
the jobless recovery predicted years ago is underway! 🙂

Re: Laptop price increase

Except for where I live. 🙂 Looks like we'll be losing a Senate seat this
year due to declining population.

Don't you mean a House seat? I thought every state got 2 senators regardless of population?

Or is this like a foreign country or something?

Or a joke that I'm not privy to? (you know, one of those "you had to be there" kinda things)

No...you're right. Things would have to be realllllly bad to lose a Senate
seat. 🙂

Re: Laptop price increase

Craig:

Can you give an example of a specific laptop that costs more now than
it did a year ago? : )

I've heard there's a glut and that prices for LCD TV's are set to tank
around end of November.
