I figure each user knows his needs best. For my uses, a bulky case is inconvenient. And if I actually broke a device, I'd just go buy a replacement.
I'm with you on these issues. An extended warranty for what's supposed to be a high grade device as it is? Nah. I paid $20 bucks for my case and love it. No need to shell out another $150 bucks for case! What are these people desperately trying to make their iPad cost $1500 bucks? :)Quote:

I think Mahall is speaking for his own wants, versus what other consumers might want. Granted, I don't think the higher-end iPads will sell as well as the cheaper ones, but I think Apple knows what it's doing here, for various reasons.
I think some buyers might be threatened by the sale of higher-end devices, because they worry that resources will be diverted, or that manufacturers will abandon lower-end customers. If for instance, you have to stretch to buy an iPad now, you might worry that they'll abandon say a 16GB device, leaving you unable to afford to upgrade later.
We should play a little game and have everyone count up how many TBs are at their personal disposal (files you could delete if you wanted to without someone else getting upset). While I'm sure I won't be at the very top of such a list, I'd bet I'm in the top 25%, speaking of individuals only.
I'm a content hoarder, too. Every one of my iDevices has 64GBs now -- iPads, iPhone and touch. Every device is nearly full, except for my touch 5, and that's only because I recently got it, and my husband has just inherited my touch 4 64GB, which was nearly full, too. When I upgrade, I automatically go for the most storage available at the time.
