On the other hand, My computer cost me about $1,200, but I'm on it all the time, and I needed something reliable for school, work, communication, entertainment, etc. I don't even own a tv, because the computer does everything. Cheaper ****tier products have their place, as well as the more expensive high quality items.
    Very good points. This true of my carpentry tools, as well. Those that I (ab)use the most, hammer, measuring tape, saws and drill/driver tools, I buy the better quality tool, so that they last longer and have easily replacable "wear" parts. The "Harry Homeowner" (low) quality tools are fine for those that I rarely use, like nailsets, chissels and punches. There is rarely a need to by heirloom quality items if they are not to become heirlooms. ;-)

    Yes I think it should be outlawed

    I also think 3 legged dogs should be outlawed because I don't like seeing them.

    No.
    You do it yourself.
    It's natural.
    It may sadly (for us short-lived meat bags) be long-term optimal.

    So you too think MS should have designed XP to work with an infinite amount of memory. Interesting.

    Um.. asking for clarification != agreeing with another position. Come on, you're smarter than that. [er, how else can I reply to something so blatantly derp-tastically stupid sounding without risking an infraction?]

    There are other natural things. I have a "natural" solution to these problems too.

    There's a difference between cheap stuff that breaks and PO.
