Apple's campaign, in a sense, is akin to how cigarettes still have so much staying power given the long-term, industry-wide PR

Or maybe its because they put out a far superior quality product compared to the competition?
comparing it to cigarettes / addiction is not the same thing.
Why dont you compare to something like
Buying 2 cars that can get you from point a to b but costing different?
Or buying Topps to Topps chrome? WHy pay more for Chrome ?
