The last purchase I did, was an apple monitor, this was 3 years ago. It’s a cheap monitor since it’s a product that Apple doesn’t make anymore, it is discontinued. but I still wanted to get the better deal out of it. So I started doing some research about the technology type the monitor is and what we have in the market these days. I visited numerous websites including second-hand use products since my budget was 60 dollars.
Doing my research, and comparing prices across the web, I found a very good option and I selected one as the main option for me to go for. But meanwhile doing my research, I found out that there was another monitor from apple which was better and had the camera built-in. So I did the same research I did the first time but now under another monitor’s model. But at the same time, I started the negotiation about the first option I had.
So at one point I found one of each model and I had the opportunity of choosing one because they both were at the same price. So I went for technology and selected the one that had the built-in camera. I always being a person who appreciates technology and its a driver for me. When the moment of truth came and I had to decide, I choose the one that wasn’t my first option, I choose the one that I discovered while doing my research and price benchmark.
