While thermal stress from cycling is not a myth, it's considerably less a factor than it was in the past. Basically with modern machines (say 2000-2002 or newer) pick which suits you best. The component that suffers most from on-off cycles is the power supply itself.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.
