The shoes that last the longest cost the most. Think about your longest serving pair of shoes.
The ones that last the longest are the pairs you paid triple the price of the shoes that lasted half a year.
Technology is just like shoes.
Buy cheap technology. You'll pay handsomely for bandaids to curb the blisters, new soles when there is a blow out and a whole new pair when they no longer meet your needs.
Everything has its price for a reason.
