Technology usually comes at a price but the million dollar question is whether or not the price is going to be too high or low. It’s very easy to fall for the latest high-tech gadgets but there are times when our budgets demand a wise purchase so that we don’t live beyond our means and end up being broke. When it comes to tablets, robot vacuum cleaners and headphones, it is worth weighing both ends of the scale. There are definitely benefits of buying high but at the same time, there are few budget alternatives too which will just fit in fine. What are they? Let’s take a quick look at the list.
Robot Vacuum Cleaner
The iRobot line of Roomba vacuum cleaners first came into the market in the year 2002 and since then they have successfully created a niche for themselves. Since then, almost all vacuum cleaners have borrowed some designs from this motorized cleaner. The present best model Roomba is the 980 which dons 120 minutes of runtime, improved capabilities of navigation, Wi-Fi, virtual wall barriers, powerful features of carpet cleaning, virtual barriers for wall and also an app which lets you manage vacuuming. This comes at a huge price of $900.
Eufy RoboVac11 is the budget alternative
No, this brand may not sound too popular and this is because the sister brand to Anker, which is a company well known for its charger, battery or other cable products. Eufy’s RoboVac 11 has a striking resemblance with Roomba as it has got a similar circular shape. This is available at only $220 and hence you can well understand the amount that you can save. This has got 90 minutes of runtime and has got a remote control. However, it doesn’t have the app which Roomba has.
The budget option for tablets
While the wealthier will definitely opt for iPads and Apple products, you may not be able to afford this if you’re on a tight budget. Hence, Amazon Fire HD 8 is a viable option for people who are on a budget. Initially, you will definitely feel that the specifications of Amazon Fire HD8 are not up to the mark as iPad. However, something that keeps it within the must-buy territory is the $85 price tag and that too without any kind of special offers. The Fire HD8 operates a customized version of the Android (Google) OS and this too can soon become familiar to Android fans. Hence, if data is not a big deal for you, the budget tablet decision should definitely be with Amazon.
So, it is not that you have to shell off huge amounts of your money in order to become technically upgraded. By opting for the budget alternatives, you can still stay within your budget and use the best high-tech gadgets in the market. Make sure you are aware of the specifications and features before settling down with the best one.
