    I spend more on things I use a lot.

    I pound on this laptop for several hours pretty much every day; I have no problem paying the "Apple tax" for a MacBook Pro; DW's ThinkPad was about a third of...

    It is. But they don't hand out Volvos. American manufacturers only (at least in the U.S.) and, apparently, not just Cadillacs anymore. The Cadillacs are for winners.
