I think what motivates buying is compatability over quality.

I also think it's the old FUD factor (not Elmer Fudd mind you, but Fear Uncertainty & Doubt). This was a major factor in IBM's dominance in the 70's & 80's for us dinosaurs that remember.

You can probably use the same analogy with Intel, although competition is heating up with AMD, CYRIX, Evergreen and some other CPU maufacturers out there.
