As you’d expect, there’s been quite a bit of excitement over Apple’s newly released iPhone 5, but even as a user of Apple products, I’m not willing to camp out on the streets for days or burn a whole in my wallet for no reason.

Hopefully, the record-breaking number of people who have already purchased the latest iDevice did so with a bit of purpose — to take advantage of the larger screen, 4G capabilities or even the slightly improved camera — and not because, well, they just aren’t that bright.

Thanks to Sam Roberts and 9to5Mac, we’re now able to meet Rachel and find out exactly why she’s determined to get her hands on the Apple 5. Enjoy:
