    There are two things to consider.
    The person might not choose to spend that time working. So either they wait in line and save a bit of money, or they sit on the couch watching tv. Now of course, even just watching tv and relaxing is still worth something, but it kind of just depends on how you see things as that doesn't translate directly to money.  Not everyone has the option to work those extra hours. In general, I do agree -- it's not worth the time or effort to wait in lines, but again, it just depends on your situation and what you would actually do otherwise with your time.  
     
    I bought something at the store and wanted to return it. It took about an hour of my time to go to the store and make the return. Had I just worked that hour, then I would have more or less break even and still had the item. BUT, truthfully, I wouldn't have worked during that hour anyway.

    I used my SP3 / iPad Pro quite heavily when I was in school for taking notes, and would love to have a iPad w/ pencil support for the occasional jotting down of ideas....but It would be too infrequent to warrant spending $400~ and on top of that, Apple refuses to care about the iPad Mini.

    79wjd got a reaction from ATFink in I agree with Bernie Sanders on many points, but he's off his rocker ("old man" joke)   
    Under no circumstance should anyone (other than the employing company) dictate a maximum wage. You can easily live off of $40k a year, so then no one should be allowed to make more than that.

    In theory I do believe the 600Ohm variant sounds better (although with less bass -- so imo maybe worse), and potentially needing an amp to notice the difference. But it's more that they just look much nicer.

    A used iPad Pro ends up being cheaper, plus it has a laminated screen, which is nice. Basically any way of going with an iPad + pencil will cost $350+ and I'm not interested in a non-active pencil. 
     
    To be honest, half the reason I'm thinking about it again is because of the free home mini from ebay -- I've wanted it, but not enough to warrant spending any real money on. So I probably won't buy any tablet for that reason.....but I might get a PS4 Pro instead.
