I have no brand loyalty--I just buy what's best at the time.
So, you look at performance? What makes you think the performance numbers you read in the press and on the Internet are correct?
is why you expect to be able to have some trust in a company - When you see any benchmark scores in a review, you expect that to be what you will get when you play games, not an artificially inflated score that makes product x
look better than product y
