There are two definite purchases we're looking to make in the new year: one large, one small.
The greatly anticipated iPhone 5 has been stirring even more hype since the iPhone 4S was (disappointingly) released instead of it this past year. Everyone is anticipating another major game-changer with the iPhone 5 and some analysts are predicting that it'll be responsible for the Apple's strongest stock growth of the year. And thankfully with our subsidized price thanks to our service provider, it likely won't be much more expensive, if at all, than current iPhone prices.
This will be the larger purchase of the year for us as we finally commit to a dedicated sound system for our livingroom. The TV's speakers just aren't cutting it for us anymore and we're looking for a better option to play music for guests than our computer speakers. Factoring in decent speakers and a receiver we expect the purchase will get pretty pricey and have begun the process of allocating the money efficently. And of course, we'll be using Craigslist to pawn off some older tech that is no longer of need for us. We've been doing a lot of research online already but if anyone has recommendations, we're all ears. :)
What are you looking forward to in the new year? A new release like the iPhone 5 or perhaps upgrading long outmodded equiptment?
