This is like that argument of "a mouse is a mouse." Sure all mice do the same things, but gaming mice have better response time, more accurate tracking, and better driver support.

Do all PCs do the same thing? Yes. Do all PCs do the same thing at the same level? No.

My friend can't understand how anyone can spend $500 on a graphics card because he thinks $500 is too much for an entire PC including the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers. He CAN afford it too, he just doesn't understand why anyone would waste their money on it.

I can't understand why anyone would buy a $100,000 car, but hey maybe that's because I don't much care for driving.
