Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

Maybe so, but if they didn't sell their old kit to me they would have sold it to someone else. Either way they will be buying another new item from that manufacturer, whether I bought from them or not. It's out of my hands.

And so it can perpetuate / what Soulbender says. It definitely works also for 2nd hand market - at the extreme example, if some items would become essentially non-resalable , the original companies would definitely lose out.
