The term "You get what you pay for" is an axiom that is not all encompassing. If it was universally true then nothing would ever be overpriced and anything you could pay for would by force of universal law, be a good value. Unfortunately, the universe doesn't work that way.
When I bought my first PC in 1992 there was a 486/33 IBM-clone selling for $1899 sitting next to a true IBM-brand 486/33 selling for $2999. They had identical specs but the salesman wanted me to pay the extra $1100 for the sole benefit of saying that mine was real
. When I told him I wanted the $1899 clone he said, "You get what you pay for." I wondered what kind of idiot he thought I was. Ask the typical person what capability MS Office has that Libre Office or Google Drive doesn't have and the blank stare you get back will indicate that they are the same kind of idiot that salesman thought I was.
