You do not have to rush out to the store to get the newest technology if you do not want to this holiday season. The National Retail Federation is expecting Americans to spend between nine to 11 percent more than last year’s holiday season to the tune of approximately $850 billion. The Untold Insights Survey showed that 26 percent of holiday shoppers plan on buying more electronics this year, tied with fashion apparel and home goods and trailing only gift cards. Some devices may not need a complete replacement, especially if they are only a couple of years old. Erin Helgeson from Quantum PC in Sturgeon Bay says comparing what you want your device to do to what it can do is important.
In addition to new models of certain devices, the biggest change shoppers may see is with their laptops and desktops. PCs will now likely be preloaded with Windows 11, which was released last month.
