    If you think it's high, you're not the target buyer, but iPad serves many types of users:

    "To offer some differentiation from its other iPads -- which start at $329 for the iPad mini -- Apple is targeting the new model primarily at professional users, including those in the architectural and medical fields who handle large files. Gamers, movie fans and avid magazine readers are also likely to appreciate the extra storage space."

    Apple releases new iPad with 128 GB of storage - Jan. 29, 2013

    The next iPad I buy will have 128GBs. I'll wait for technical upgrades first, though.

    This release appears to be timed to one-up Microsoft with the release of its Surface Pro.

    I see the MBA and the iPad as very different devices and, in my mind, are not in competition with each other. I know others think differently, but I'm sure there are plenty of people how will have both.

    I agree.

    There also will be some people who can't afford both and will go one way or another, depending on their needs and preferences, but we all know there are usability and portability differences between a tablet and other types of computers.

    I just saw this on google + and decided to mosey on over to "the forum" to see the comments. That's fine, I didn't need 128GB right now. . Who's getting one?

I do want one of these, but I was also hoping to get it in a new housing...one more like what the mini has...with lighter weight, too. I don't really mind the extra money for it....even though, flash storage is not really that expensive these days....they do have to find room for it inside the housing...I don't want to buy another iPad that looks just like my 3 gen...maybe that is petty, but it is how it is.
    Don't worry, it's coming!!! I would hold off. Maybe in June lol.

    I want to squeeze one more year out of my iPad 2 if I can but yes - my next iPad will be 128. Hopefully there's a 128 mini by then. My arms not as strong as they once were and I find the full body iPad a bit tiring to hold over longer periods.

    Good boy!!! Such discipline. My new iPad was sort of an impulse holiday gift to myself. I really wasn't expecting an upgrade so soon and now we are expecting three, that we know of, including a mini. But I am good w my 64GB for now. I've only used about 10GB on my 2 and it will be 2 years old in August.
