    Yeah, i try to only update my stuff every few years. I went over board this year though. Since the 15th of august i got the new retina macbook, iPad air 2, apple watch, and iPhone 6s +, plus many accessories for these.

    Im in college and last year realized the rMBP wasn't fun carrying to class every day. Also the mini is too small for me when i only bring that. I got the watch because why not and the phone because... yeah i haven't really figured that one out. i have a 6 and was up doing homework when the preorders started and was like why the **** not... lol

    My wallet wants to kill me now.

    Ps not a spoiled college kid, I'm 29 and buy my own ****.

    I only have the sports band for my watch, i wanted to get either the new classic buckle or milanese to go with it but i am waiting. i keep checking out everyones 3rd party bands trying to figure out if any are good quality or not. I actually ordered the classic buckle but ended up canceling it once i realized I've spent over $3K on apple stuff the last month lol

    Tell me about it. A new 13" rMBP at the beginning of the year, the 6s+ this Friday, and still trying to put off buying the Apple Watch...if only I could decide on which one...

    yeah, the things i use the macbook and iPad for will not require a replacement until they completely die. 6s+ should last me at least 2 years, longer if my want for new things does not take over. and the watch... have to just wait and see on that one. now that apple has the base technology to release what they have, i could see some major and quick advances in that technology.

    I sold my Air 2 and missed it so much I turned around and bought it again a few months later.

    Yeah, i have the mini, but using that for college bio and chem books got annoying because of the contents scrolling and zooming in and out, so i replaced it with the Air 2. The only thing that would gt me to replace that is if the Air 3 comes out as a 9in iPad pro. I would love to have the ability to write and take notes directly on the pages of my college books, but i feel the 12in size is too large.

    Close to my year. Sold Air 2, then repurchased a few months later.

    Bought and returned watch (defective). Planning to repurchase.

    Looking into getting a lightning dock for my 6s+.

    I feel your pain. My bank account is weeping. I just upgraded my Sport to a Stainless Steel a couple weeks ago, picked up the Mini 4, grabbed an MBA, and have my 6s on preorder. Needless to say I'm all good on "upgrades" at least for a year now! I figured might as well get it all done in one swoop.

    I just picked up the milanese tonight and I think you'll love that combo it looks great.

    Just bought a gently used apple link band for a amazing price, 4 moko bands, a preordered 6s+ and my eye on an iPad or save for pro.

    Damn you Apple. Really!

    The real Apple Milanese loop is completely worth it. I started out with a SS with black sports band... added a blue sports band a couple of weeks later. I love both... bit when I got the Milanese loop it completely transformed the Watch!

    Save up for the real thing... you won't regret it!

    It does look stunning and worth it to me.

    Think it goes perfectly. Will wear the loop for every day use and work and use sport band for the workouts and walks etc. A good combo I reckon

    Wow that is a lot of equipment - I wish I had your money :D

    I opted for the sports model just because of my budget, perhaps that's something you may want to consider, especially since you ordered a 6s as well.

    Nah I just missed IOS and got tired of the lag of samsung..great device but drove me mad in the end.

    I had the gear S before so I've always liked the phone and watch option and with such a large phone i really thought there will be times where i don't want to get my phone out my pocket all the time at certain times certainly when it is such a long device.

    It looks a stylist watch too

    Great choice, I'm sure you will love it! :) I got my SGS months ago and couldn't be happier. And it will get even better with watchOS 2.

    I really want to get a black leather loop for it but my wallet is starting to hurt too.....used Galaxy Tab S 8.4, new MBP 15" and AW all within two months.......and I will not be able to resist upgrading my 6+ to a 6s+ and then getting Apple TV too.....

    Apple why u keep making such nice stuffs :mad:

    Well this is the last year where i will go mad like this. The macbook will last me for many years and due to resale value on the iPhone being so good it won't cost me much to upgrade my phone every year if i so choose.

    I expect the watch to last me at least 2 years too
