But, after those two issues are decided, they want to know which specific brand and model is best. Essentially, I am being asked to do their research for them! Let me go on record and say that I am happy to set up a business that will shop for them, but my rate is $100.00 per hour, with a 3 hour minimum! Clearly that isn’t going to happen.
So, I snooped around the interwebs and found a new site that launched in June of 2011. They have a team of PhDs and computer programmers that have figured out a way to analyze all of the TVs, Cameras and Computers currently being offered sale. They strip out all of the marketing hype and apply scientific principles in the algorithm they have developed to allow you to make informed decisions. They also show you which store has the lowest price. But, even better, they can advise you to buy now, wait for a better price or not to buy a specific model at all!
Once you settle on a specific model, you can go to the store that has it buy now if that’s what they advise or you can set up an alert that will advise you when to buy according to their projections.
I took a spin around on it today because a friend just asked me about a laptop for her to buy. The screen shot will show you which model I chose for her. I was able to set filters that screened all the choices by price, processor and RAM. Once you see a model that you like, you can click on it to see the full specs.
There is no complicated set up process. You can set up alerts by simply connecting with your Facebook account or just by giving it your email address.
This has been needed for a long time and I think it will be helpful to many people. Even if you are not in the market, go check it out…you may need it sooner than you think! Here is the link: http://www.decide.com/
