Complete agreement, with all you points, but especially that one. It is
definitely necessary to set a budget (which depends greatly on personal
circumstances) as to what is appropriate.

My point was somewhat different in this case. If the manual is available for
free as a PDF, then there is NO need to pay for a copy, even if the price is
reasonably low and the purpose is for functional access to the information.

If you are going to pay for it, then that puts you in the category of a
collector, and are getting the manual for the sake of having the manual.
IMHO, this is the same if you pay $20 for the manual or $2500.
