Sunk Cost Fallacy

The Misconception: You make rational decisions based on the future value of objects, investments and experiences.

The Truth: Your decisions are tainted by the emotional investments you accumulate, and the more you invest in something the harder it becomes to abandon it.

It depends if the op is picking based on emotional investments rather than a business investment.

As the op is "more then willing to switch" meaning he/she is not picking based on emotional investments, he/she surely do not fall under this fallacy. Usually those that do fall under this fallacy are fanboys/girls who pick based on emotion and thus apply emotional investments.

Just state you never knew your passwords from the start, because today's magic made it you never need to. You just face roll around the keyboard and Voila! It unlocks! It's just black magic.

Tell them that even Microsoft has some weird dark magic that if you stare at the screen long enough it unlocks.

The court will either believe you because they probably believe it's black magic too, or they will just write you off as insane. Both are win-win.
