I have been forced by wobbly screens,loose power supply leads and bloated software (netbeans) to get a new laptop. Do I buy before VAT goes up or are the new year discounts going to more than make up for it.I will not hold anyone liable for advice or pointers...honest Tom te tom te tom
I would have thought the sales would make up for the increase:£100 ex VAT now costs £117.50 and will go up to £120, however sales tend to be around 20% which would be £96, so you're still making a saving. In a nutshell VAT is going up 2.5% but I've never seen a sale where the discount is anything close to that low.
