Weekend Discussion: Your Best and Worst Tech Purchases

I’ve made a lot of bad and good tech purchases over the years. Some tech purchases were good because of what they led to, what they taught me, or the value added to my life. Others were bad because of the overhype, cost, or was just plain junk

My overall best tech purchase was the Compaq TC1000 Tablet PC. It was a fantastic tablet pc (although slow as molasses), and it paved the way for what I currently do for a living.


My overall worst tech purchase Palm Treo 700W phone. I had nothing but problems with from the beginning. It was a total lust purchase, too – right after CES 2006.

What about you?
