Question about mediums

Okay, I've been thinking and I really want to get some input on this.

If you went to an art show would you be more inclined to buy an original in real media or a large one of a kind print of a digital piece. Either would be equally as good, but what do you prefer and /why/ did you choose that?

I personally think folks have more of a preference for real media because its something that is one of a kind that they can take home with them and keep, but on the otherhand a digital piece can /also/ be one of a kind, they could destroy the large file upon printing of one large mega print, so its not so much a level of rarity here. There's a lot more you can do visually with digital media, but real media is really awesome to see in person, the prints never usually do it justice. I can really see both sides of the argument.

What are your thoughts?
