    Default What was your last "big" tech purchase?

    For me, a 2nd gen 12.9 iPad Pro (Apple Refurb). $1099 was a pretty solid price for it and I couldn't resist.
    Also a bunch of parts to build a media pc.

    Last year I bought a second hand GTX1070Ti and a new Asus 27" 1440p 165hz monitor as a bit of a Christmas pressie to myself.

    I built myself a new PC for my 50th in August.
    Ryzen 2700X, NVME Samsung SSD, second hand GTX1070.

    Didn't need it, just wanted to.

    a 32" PC monitor (Just a cheapish LG)
    a descent spec 8" Android tablet (from Gearbest )

    Thats about as big as my tech spend gets these days.

    Big?

    The last gaming graphics card I bought,,,, ages ago now.

    Last tech purchase in general, new phones, just the Spark flip phone, basic, non-smart.

    The exciting purchase lately was the Stihl chainsaw I bought today.
    Husband had been getting sick of the Husqvarna for ages, and it got an issue yet again at which point I said give up, Stihl was on special this week.

    This cheap Veon 50' 4K TV. Better than the crappy DSE 40' I had before.

    And a cheap videocard for the other PC. Since the one that was in it, kept overheating. At least the replacement has a fan

    It's not big,but the last thing I brought was on Alixpress. This Android 8.1 mobile with NFC. And an NFC ring
