(A) user-friendliness also implies that owners can service their own computers if user friendliness is "irrelevant" then this should also be
(B) personal computers cost more the more user-friendly they are maybe?

i think E? Well since user-friendliness is not a "concern" then that to me means the users need to "use" it first and E seems to show that the potential buyers are still deciding whether to buy one or not. B is a maybe since it could show that the potential buyers just want something cheap and thus price is a lot more important the user friendliness if cost differs as user friendliness goes up.

Between C and E. I go with E.

Not C again talks about user-friendliness. We need to find a logically prior issue...which is whether the computers are worth buying. C can be the next best choice:)

Agree with "E"

If people don't need to use the computer at all, there is no concern with how easy the computer is to use.
