I think some of the problem here is that some people are trying to rationalise their hobby.
There's always going to be a more rational (in terms of time and money spent) way to live your life. Do NOT try to rationalise your OWN hobby by pointing out ineffiencies in other peoples time and money spent. It is NOT going to work. If I WANT an AmigaOne, I am not going to spend money on a PC. Why? Because I don't WANT a PC.
I have spent money on a boat I hardly even use. Why? Because I wanted one.
I haven't bought an apartment (and I'm nearly 28 years old, that's almost unheard of here in Norway). Why? Because I haven't found the place I want.
Buying something you do not want because it is cheaper SURELY cannot be the right thing to do?
So to everyone who has no interest in buying a Peg, don't tell those who have that they shouldn't because this or that. To everyone not interested in an AmigaOne, don't tell those who are interested that an x86 is cheaper. If they wanted an x86 more they would buy one, they aren't THAT stupid.
As it is, you must want an AmigaOne or a Peg more than you want an x86 to justify a purchase, but if you need to justify the purchase then maybe you're not really interested anyway.
So, enough is enough. You spend YOUR money how YOU feel is right, I will spend MINE as I want to. I think my next purchase will be a projector, but I want one with 1024x768 so am hanging in there, waiting for prices to drop. If I had been interested enough, I would have bought one anyway. But I ain't. So what do I do? Shut up and bide my time, is what I do.
Thank you for listening.
