    C) It is positive because, although it is the least expensive, it has average performance.

    Explanation:

    It can be a positive for someone who is looking to spend less on something that can deliver well enough. Rating a performance average means it basically does what it is supposed to do with some competence.

    To be able to have that at reasonable price is a good bargain for some. However the phrase just as may have a negative connotation for some as it is least expensive and not cheap. It still is a little expensive is what the phrase insinuates.
