No, I'd say its more like there's two schools of thought when it comes to buying tech gadgets: there's the apple way, and then there's the smart way.

The apple way you find something that looks shiny and you buy it at whatever price they'll charge, and it's cool because all of your hip artsy fartsy friends at the coffee shop do it.

The smart way is you wait until the devices hit the market, you find the one that does what you need it to, read the reviews to find out where its faults are, and if you are comfortable with what you read, you find a good deal on it.

I mean any person with two licks of sense is going to pay attention to the reviews.
