Something change your mindset before you decided to buy something???

Did anyone of you experienced of this scenario?

When you walk into the shopping mall to check out a LCD price, you found out another LCD beside it has a higher resolution than another, but you can't tell the difference in term of the quality. The higher quality costs an extra RM50, and it doesn't come in the color you want. Still, most people will go for the second one.

Due to the product specification, it can always change your mind. More people trust into the number rather their's own experiences. Most of the time, these extra features come which extra cost, while we don't use it, in the end we still choose the one with extra features because we thought we might need it "sometime"? or just having the thought of the one we bought has better resolution, higher megapixel...

Just as an example, last week i bought a GPS device "Nuvi 205". The seller try to convince me to get the "special edition Nuvi 205" which come the same features with the original one, the different is just the casing color & another extra power adapter by paying another 10% extra. Or else i only able charge the Nuvi device in the car with car adapter but not in the house.

I was tempted to get that "special edition Nuvi"...In the end, i decided to buy that original Nuvi 205 but not the special edition. Reason why? My thought telling me, I will only use that device most of the time inside the car, but not inside the house, then why should i pay extra 10% just to get something which is not really necessary to me?

When I reach home and play around with that toy, i realized i could charge it with USB cable too! (Obviously you need to have that USB cable, it doesn't come with that package)...So my decision was right! :P

well.. I believe getting what we need should always be priority. Not things that we don't need, but still buy it anyway.

Else, the money would not be well spent.

I always have this kind of dilemma and most of the time end up buying nothing. hahaha

I think it is a mind game. Some people will always thought "aiyah, RM50 only then u get extra feature. I might need it in FUTURE!"

People should always follow their instincts and their needs.

i think people tend to go for a "better" one...human natural

Ya, if said Intel never released any new processor, so we all will save a lot of money without doing pc upgrade from time to time...haha!

At least you are better than me,
i buy things too fast, sometime without the deep thought, then feel a bit regret after that...too late..

Hai! nice to meet you!
Nothing so great about programmer, poor job!
I working more on Microsoft platform which is dot net...wishes you happy new year too!
