Well looking at the new Iphone prices, you can get a Iphone Xs Max 512GB for R31999
That is a decent macbook pro price #FML

a R32,000 iphone which will be used for whatsapp, phone calls and facebook ... or a R32k laptop that can be used for a magnitude of things. Laptop definitely.

Expensive laptop... hence I haven't upgraded my iPhone at all... if it still works well, why must I?

Phones plateau pretty quickly, my mid-level P20-lite does pretty much everything the top of the range iPhone can do.

An expensive laptop on the other hand is far more useful than a cheaper laptop if you make sure the expensive one is focused on the specifications.

Why anyone would pay more than R6k for a phone is beyond me, contract-subsidised or otherwise.

If mybb pays, I'll accept both, filming on my expensive phone paid for by mybb, and editing on my expensive laptop paid for by mybb.
