Apple adds 128GB option for fourth-generation iPad
A 128GB version of the fourth-generation iPad will go on sale February 5th, Apple has announced. The tablet will cost $799 in a Wi-Fi-only version, or $929 when paired with 3G/4G cellular. Features will otherwise stay identical to other fourth-gen models, including an A6X processor; <a href="http://www.ipodnn.com/articles/13/01/28/update.expands.lte.support.tweaks.siri.itunes.matc h/">iOS 6.1</a> should come preinstalled. <br /><br />The addition addresses an occasional complaint about the iPad, which is that although it often functions like a computer, it lacks the storage capacity of something like a Mac. 128GB is the same amount of default storage in a Retina MacBook Pro, and in fact twice the amount that comes with the cheapest MacBook Air. The change may fuel speculation that Apple is planning to drop 16GB iPads, making 32GB the smallest capacity.

Get rid of the 16GB iPad
They should have just doubled the storage capacities and left the pricing the same. The $100 gap between the 16GB & 32GB is outrageous at this point. I'm glad they boosted the capacity, and I'm sure they'll sell, but it doesn't do anything with regard to addressing pricing competitiveness.

Dude, did you forget who you are talking about? This the same company that charges you a minimum of 4x the market price for digital capacity. Just give them the finger and say no. It's easier, and soon than later you will come to find out that you have just participated in the growing club! :)

Or, you could do neither of those things and just not use Apple stuff. You know, low-road vs. high-road kind of thing.

There's a big difference in personality between someone who won't use a particular company's stuff and someone who won't use a particular company's stuff and has to make a big stink about it all the time with hyperbole and vulgarity. One could be considered a personality trait and the other could be considered a personality flaw.

Wow, trolltrolltroller telling DiabloConQueso that it really matters what he thinks? I guess he's agreeing with your point DCQ, and admitting that his compulsive trollery IS in fact a personality flaw.

Thanks for manning up and admitting that, blahbber, but that fact was about as secret as Jodie Foster's lesbianism around here. :p

This... is... absurd. Almost $1000, for a tablet? :brick:

For that kind of money, you could buy a full-featured computer

In 3 years, we're gonna look back and laugh at the days in which we sold tablets for $500.

In 6 years, we're gonna laugh at when we look back and actually sold them for $300.

Glad I am not alone on this one...
