Some People!!!

You know how some people are? They will talk and talk about their loyalty about one brand. And their hatred for another. And then still choose this hated brand because of nefarious reasons like lower price. Don't you just hate such people?

For instance there will be people who will swear by the IBM/Lenovo product quality. They will praise it to the skies, convince others to pay the premium because of assured quality and reliability. They will call Dell a shoddy tawdry brand which does not deserve to be mentioned in the same blog post as IBM. They will proudly say that they will never be caught dead using a Dell.

And when push comes to shove, when they actually have to buy something, they will look around. They will compare the prices between IBM and Dell. And they will see the 250 dollars difference. Then they will quietly go ahead and order the Dell, consoling themselves that their stipend right now is not enough to dream of IBM.

Such convenient brand loyalty. I hate such people.

Today, I am such people. :(
