I disagree.  Popularity directly affects the number and availability of aftermarket accessories.  It also, affects resale value, increases the likelihood of continued manufacturer support, and insures a wealth of online support from blogs and forums.  Now, I believe popularity should only be a minor consideration.  However, it most certainly is a factor.
