Yes, it is the consumers\fanbois
Drinking the Kool-Aid. I gotta have the newest! I'll wait in line!
Or as in my case, 2 iPhones over 8 years, and the boy is using my old iPhone 5, (which was used and free) and loving it. My current SE was purchased used, it will need a new battery in due time, but this model is pretty easy to replace the battery, like the 5. Apple hasn't always been unrepairable, just in recent memory. I love the Unibody MacBook, that model should have stayed in production for the education sector.
