One of my Mac friends recently rationalized an Xbox (used)
purchase by saying, "This will prevent me from having to
buy a PC to game on."  When I told him M$ would still get
money from it (we recently had a philosophical discussion
about the fact that putting any $ in M$'s pocket is,
essentially, putting a $ into the pocket of an entity trying
to get rid of every UNIX sys admin on the planet), he said,
"Not if I only buy used games."

Still seems like a bargain with the devil to me.
