In 1978, Sony released a portable audio cassette player named the Walkman, which forever changed music listening habits by allowing people to bring music with them and listen to it through lightweight headphones. By the late 1990s, the cassette-based Walkman started being phased out in favor of emerging digital technologies such as CD, Digital Audio Tape and MiniDisc. Evolution eventually brought us to the age of the iPod, a line of portable media players and multi-purpose pocket computers designed and marketed by Apple Inc. The first of these was released on October 23, 2001, and the rest is history.
Today, we live in the digital media age of iPads and tablet computers, Nooks and Kindles, iPods and media-centric smart phones. Handheld game consoles, whose history began with iconic systems like Nintendo’s Game Boy, have also matured into platforms like Playstation’s Vita, capable not only of game play, but also ancillary computing and multimedia endeavors. If it is electronic and portable, it pretty much falls into the genre of ‘personal electronics’.
At Metro Pawn and Gun we have a wide selection of such personal electronics electronics. Although the actual life expectancy of modern electronic hardware is substantial, we find ourselves endlessly upgrading our devices for fear of obsolescence, or in keeping step with technological developments. This condition creates a bountiful inventory of gently used equipment that still performs well and meets the expectations of most users. Likewise, it generates demand for product from those of us who do not wish to pay a premium to get that extra megapixel featured on the latest iteration of the iThing. So regardless of whether you are on the cutting edge of technology ownership, or happy with something that does what you need and saves you money at the end of the day, we can help.
Our spectrum of electronic commodities covers a lot of territory. Need a desktop computer without having to sell your car to get it? Want an Xbox console with enough games to ‘save the universe’ several times over? Looking to get rid of that ‘high-end’ digital camera outfit because your phone now takes better pictures? If you wish to buy, sell or pawn any type of personal electronics, visit us at Metro Pawn & Gun in Minneapolis – our inventories are always in motion and our selection is equally dynamic. With knowledgeable staff, awesome selection and service second to none, you will join the ranks of our many satisfied customers, guaranteed!
