I believe I understand what you are saying but I think it is illusion. Not really much difference inside in this day and age. All mass produced. From what I've seen inside you are mainly paying for perceived prestige and marketing. I haven't found Apple products any more reliable. Sometimes even less - power supplies, video chips, etc. giving up the ghost. If the specs are what you need go for it but brands and price alone mean nothing. As in smoke and mirrors.

I remember in the old days when people went on about reliable hard drives and I looked at my large stack of crashed drives...pretty much equal numbers of all brands. Much more like slot machines at the casino. I've done a lot of data recovery over the years. Kept some drives going while blowing a fan over ice to cool it.

My $395 on sale Acer laptop is chugging along fine after 15 months. If you are happy with what you have that's good. My sense of worth does not depend upon some piece of hardware but rather on what I have done.

Best to all, Mike
