Practical types don't buy Apple

You're talking to people on a forum who spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on photography equipment, many of whom don't make a single dime off of these expenditures. Most people here choose and buy equipment for the sheer pleasure of using the equipment. And you're talking about "practical types?" Haha. And even more absurdly, your comment on "practical types" follows someone who just implied that things like $7,000 Leica cameras "deserve" to cost that much, while lambasting a $500-800 iPad as a product where "material value is far exceeded by the price." Huh? If anything, it's the Leicas whose "material value is far exceeded by the price"!!! If you want to talk about a cult of impractical types who buy objects whose "material value is far exceed by the price", take a look at Leicaphiles.
