    So here we go again.. A season to spend our money to get the 'latest and greatest'.
    And this year, I might add 'and smartest choice'.

    So I came down with this choice:
    iPP 10.5" (256GB Cellular) = AU$ 1,302
    Pencil = AU$162
    iP8+ (64GB) = AU$1,228

    These I can get on eBay with 20% off. Selling by a well known store in Australia. Estimate shipping for iPP in 2-3 weeks and iP8+ in late November.

    And then came this, the mightiest of all:
    iPX (64GB) = AU$1,579 (Apple price)

    With that screen, this is a killer. But recently I really think about the awful price, missing TouchID, that 'notch' and don't even mention about how hard it to purchase in Australia.
    Just maybe Apple will get this sh*t together next year with second generation of iPX.

    And it seems iP8+ not that bad either.

    Right now what I have is an iPhone 6 16GB that really a priority to upgrade (that memory really send me to hell) and MPP Touchbar 256GB 2016.

    I'm not an experienced iCustomer, so I ask for advice of which one I should get in a smartest way:

    1. All of the eBay products, cost me around AU$2,192 (US$ 1,741)
    2. Just iPP and Pencil, AU$1.171 (US$930) and decide on iPhone later.
    3. Just iPX, AU$1,579 (US$1,254) and no new IPP :(
    4. Just iP8+, AU$982 (US$ 780) with late November delivery.

    Anyway, I am open with new suggestion.

    PS: Apple, I miss the time that we only got a headache when deciding the memory storage and colour.

    The smartest way? Buy based on your need, value, and affordability. Opinions are nice, but they are just opinions...good ones and bad ones. Be rational about buying stuff.
