Pricing History Knowing how pricing is trending is an important part of deciding when to buy. While computer hardware pricing most often decreases over time, it is useful to know if pricing is on the rise, or if pricing is in especially steep decline. This information can help you decide whether to buy quickly, or whether to wait for pricing to settle.
