Even though most of us live on a budget, it doesn't stop us from wanting to get more tech. If money would be no object, I'd probably be sporting an iPhone, iPad, and a few other gizmos that I don't currently own. With that being said, what's the tech you should save for and buy?
If it takes you a few months to save up, it's just something that you'll have to live with. There's nothing like paying cash for such a big ticked item. Checking a variety of online stores and real stores is usually he way to go. Most of my biggest items are purchased in cash from real stores.
If you're involved in photography, then another important tech-related item that you probably have or want is a DSLR. There are a lot of cameras out there. Our family uses Nikons. My wife has recently purchased a Nikon D700, an upgrade from the Fuji S2-Pro she had, and before you ask, yes, she paid cash for it. I own a Nikon D200. Since we both have Nikons, we can easily switch lenses. It makes a lot of sense if your partner also has a DSLR to purchase the same brand, or at least a compatible brand.
I bought my D200 in 2006. I still use it everyday and the only reason why I'd upgrade to another camera would be to get a full frame, FX, sensor that's available with the D700 and the professional grade D3X cameras. However, the D3X is too big for my taste and too expensive. I'll probably upgrade to the Nikon D800 when it comes out. It's supposed to be able to record HD video footage as well.
