But taxes are paid. Bills are paid early. You're still ahead, and gaining ground. Go for it. Take your surround sound from good to great. Hey look it's on sale, $315. But wait.
What's this now?
A new model?
But it's $450. Kind of a lot. But only $50 more than I was going to spend.
That upgrade would be sweet. Really sweet.
Even the back of the new one looks cleaner and more refined.
Compared to the new hotness:
I've researched last year's model. It's solid. It does everything you want. And now it's at a great price.
I get it.
But look at those new features. I could actually cut one more cord from the rotation. And it has the clearer UI. The old remote really is ugly. This new one looks much more palatable.
I want the new one. I do. And I think it's worth it. But I don't know. It's so new! What if it's defective? I'll have to mail it away and bullshit like that.
Man this is tough. I'll have to sleep on it for sure. But which one will I choose?
