By that logic, I should also pro-rate my mortgage, my gas and electric
bills, etc. based on the amount of time I spend in my house doing
photo-related tasks.  I'll also have to pro-rate my refrigerator since I
store film in there.  :)

The money I spent on my computer is already spent.  If I use it for
photography, it doesn't make my photographs any more expensive.
