Nothing causes buyer’s remorse quite like seeing the laptop you bought last month for $1,000 go on sale for $750. It’s equally unpleasant to buy a pricey new Dell XPS 13 in August and then watch as Dell unveils a much faster and more technically advanced model in September. The price on most laptops drops eventually, and newer models are always coming around the corner. So when is the best time to buy a laptop? The answer depends a great deal on your circumstances.
