Surely the only thing that can get up out is if the public spent again. But the only way they can spend if they can actually afford stuff.
I did 'get it' also, but don't see other items raising by so much in 3 years. If anyone can point out any other electrical items that have raised 25% in three years then ill gladly bow out.
For EG, I bought my monitors new 3 years ago and they remain a similar price (Focal Twins). I also bought a mixer three years ago (zed 16) and its now a few hundred quid cheaper!
Also my 30" LCD Dell monitor is also cheaper than the previous model and superior and cheaper than the previous model or at least the same. I can back all of this up with receipts etc if you would all like. So I just don't see what your all saying.
Would you like me to post up my receipts? I really don't mind. (With my info removed or course)
