You know that feeling you get when you buy a new gadget and then a newer, better, more affordable version drops a week later? Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal's verenable OG tech reporter, has some advice to help you avoid feeling like that this year.

In his latest column for his All Things D site, Mossberg lists some great reasons for you to "wait until at least the summer, and probably the fall, to buy a new machine, especially if you are looking for a Windows PC, but even if you are in the market for a Mac." All of it basically boils down to much better software (Windows 8, Mac OS X Mountain Loin) and hardware being released in the coming months. 

Head over to All Things D to read Mossberg's full column.
