Going the minimalist route, I've not owned a MacBook in some years now, needing access to such a device only for the occasional retrieval of a time machine file or folder.

The appeal of the Plus is the size and battery life but also seems oddly tall (compared to other similar phones on the market).

I know it's only opinion but obviously the 6 is apple's newest flagship product. My dilemma/struggle is in deciding either for the 128GB iPhone 6, or the same configuration for the Plus. I'm so not sure on which I want, but whichever I choose will most likely be my only sort of computing device until Apple announces updated Retina MacBooks next year.

I feel the iPhone and iPad apps need to intersect in a year so Plus users can choose what apps they want their bigger phone to have.

Going the minimalist route
Oh man, I so wish I could do this sometimes. I'm a minimalist at heart and don't like having much of anything. Clutter and lack of space due to random crap drives me crazy. Personally though there's just no way I could get away with only an iPhone (even if it were the 6+) since I need a bigger screen if I'm going to be browsing the web for a long time. Love my 13 inch MacBook Air <3

To answer your question though. If you are going with an iPhone as your only computing device... get the 6+. Trying to live off just a smartphone screen alone will be hard enough, get the biggest one possible for comfort.

I'll be getting a MacBook Pro retina in the future, but I see that being at least a year from now.
