Model Answer 1:
Since the dawn of time technology has been advancing. For the past years it introduced latest models to the public market. It is agreed that some people will always want to buy the newest model a technology has to offer for reasons such as happiness, passion about new technology, status, getting advanced features and socialization. These reasons will now be analyzed.

For one, many people want to purchase new things for happiness. For example, my boyfriend has given me the latest iPhone 6 plus from the apple company. It has always been my dream to have this and so this gave the ultimate happiness I have never experienced in my entire life. This makes it clear that buying new products will make people satisfied.

In addition to this, it makes people more sociable. For instance, with the apple iPhone 6 plus my loved one has given me, I can now connect to my friends and relatives whether here in the Philippines or abroad through using Facebook, Integra and yahoo messenger accounts anytime and anywhere. It is obvious from this that buying new technology will make people sociable.

New technology always comes with advanced features and people want the best tolls to do their tasks. For example, a new computer or laptop comes with more storage capacity and other advancement and facilities that often allure a person to buy the latest model though s/he already has one.
People often purchase new models of technological devices as part of their status. For instance, someone who has a car that completely satisfy the needs of this person would want to buy a latest model always. They prefer status over needs.

In conclusion, for reasons like being happy, advanced technology, more features, ease of use, passion and more sociable, people want the latest products advanced technology has to offer. These reasons are good for some people. So it is recommended to buy newest products as long as you can afford them.

Model Answer 2:

It is true that being the first to buy a new product made by a renowned brand will give customers the enjoyment of the thrill of having something before others. They tend to drive their social status by knowing the latest and the greatest in what is happening in the tech space. This is the reason why there are those who would always want to buy the newest products of technology. However, in every action there is always a positive and negative effect as it will now be discussed.
For others, buying latest products made by technology will make them the first to gain social status and for them this is a good thing. For instance is the purchasing of the new Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus released by the Apple Company in March this year. For those who bought it first tend to drive their social status by knowing the latest-and-greatest technology happenings. They enjoy the thrill of having something before others, of knowing details what is happening and partaking in the community of the world of technology. Therefore, they think this is an advantage.
However, wanting to buy the newest technology-released products every time can be frustrating to others when they don’t have the budget to purchase such. For example, one poor enthusiastic college student taking up an architectural course wanted to buy a new desktop computer to help him in his studies but his parents cannot afford it. As a result, the student lost his enthusiasm to study hard and even got a failing mark. This is a negative effect when want cannot be achieved.
In conclusion, it is nice to be the first to have of something new, but it can be saddening as well if you do not get what you want. So after analyzing the positive and negative effect of wanting to have something first is certainly not a good thing and I would never recommend it.
