    massive oversupply of electrical goods at the moment, expect all electronics firms to slash production. Expect prices to rocket with the weak pound and restricted supply. Get them bargins whilst there still about.

    Problem with that is: what do you do if things break down?

    Then buy a new one if you need it, but lots of people are buying stuff just because it's a bargain and they are bored with their current gear. If people refuse to pay the higher prices, surely they'll have to do something about it, or go under.
