Having hardware upgraded phone for $500 that would be supported for next 4 years would be much better option. I was personally in the situation like that and as much as I like iPhone SE and its attractive price I will not buy it because of limited time support. I upgrade mobile phones every 4-5 years. I do not care what others do and I definitely do not have time for playing phone upgrades and hype - this only tool for me. So to keep cost efficiency and upgrade I went Android LG which offers solid functions (some quality is way better than newest iPhone's like screen and sound). Sorry Apple, but that was good run with 5S for last years. No more and absolutely nothing that exceeds $600 price mark for phone.

Apple does have a bad habit of releasing something great and then sitting on it past its use-by date.
External devices are a pain with laptops. Here are some of my experiences. -A desk based HD: Your machine is no longer portable, If I go somewhere without the HD, I can easily access the files on the HD. -Portable HD: There is this pigtailed device always following me around. I am currently working on a large project on a portable HD. No matter how careful I have been, there has been a number of times the drive has become disconnected going from the bedroom to the bedroom. Memory stick: what ever you do, don't get a regular profile. They can too easily get bumped. Bump them too often and the USB port gets ruined. New motherboard time. $$ Low profile memory sticks: These tuck up tightly against the laptop, virtually eliminating the bumping problem. Lacking torque, it makes harder to bend the USB port. Medium profile 512gb sticks can be for $100. For true low profile sticks, they max out at 256gb.
Looks like I got lied to. My wife's out of warranty iPhone 5c died and was offered a "new" replacement. I asked if the phone was new? I got told yes. Not refurbished? I got told no, it is new. Sucker died in 6 months and store will not stand behind it. Lied to 3 different times.
