Normies are not all entirely homogeneous. Most people, most normies included, want to save their money, but an infuriatingly large portion are terrified of anything they don't currently understand no matter how easy it actually is, and are extremely willfully ignorant regardless of intelligent they actually are or not.
Consoles and just "plugging in the magic box" appeals to these people, but people will also fall into fanboyism for the medium that leaves the consumer objectively worse off just because of tribalism. They adopt the willful stupidity to justify the pissing match with The Other.
Apples marketing about how their OS is so EASY and computers are so HARD but we make them EASY appeals to that willful ignorance too, which is why even ignoring everything else wrong with apple and their things, I'd not give my money to a company that spreads that toxic mentality. But, there are still plenty of people, normies included, who arent microsoft/dogwangs fanboys, and would tell you how macs arent really that much 'simpler' and that windows isnt really 'hard' and that they dont want to spend a bunch of money just to have a picture of a half eaten fruit on their machine.>>293>Saw them on every desk at uni.
I really hate this. I know for a fact lots of those people could have spent a lot of that money on fucking food, gas, textbooks, etc, and it really would have helped them, but they saved for/spent their parents paycheck on LE MACBOOK Instead.
