    Hello! I sold my old iPad mini64GB for the iPad mini wRD. I had to go with the 32GB though to cut back on the price. Well now I'm kicking myself thinking for only $100 more I could get double the storage. Ive already gotten the low storage error. 272 mb left and only 5 songs on here so far. I'm a gamer and a music guy so I'm thinking I can't live with the 27GB of storage. Will Apple allow me to return this and pay the difference to the 64GB model? I hear there's going to be sales on Friday on Apple.com wondering if the mini wRD will be discounted and I could get the 64GB that day? I guess I'm quickly realizing I am becoming a one device guy. I can do everything from my iPad that I need to so I guess thinking about it as my primary computing device $600 isn't as hard to swallow. I might sell my windows 8 laptop to help offset the difference too as it not been getting used anymore. Idk if I'm crazy but I feel like the iPad mini wRD is so good it makes me feel like no matter what the cost it's worth it.

    All I can say I feel you. That's why i'm throwing down for the 128GB model. I'm going to be dumping some devices soon, too.

    You can return a device within the 14-day window, for any reason.

    I hear ya, I went with the 32gb just like last time but added cellular support so that ate up the 64gb storage money. Honestly, for how little I actually use the cell data I probably should have got the 64 GB wifi model. Oh well. It just requires a little more intensive space management. You can always find apps and songs you aren't using right now.

    For any newbies out there, think long and hard about storage space.... The more the merrier pretty much everytime. Resale is better too.

    So I won't have any issues walking into the Apple store and they'll just charge me the extra $100 for the 64GB? That sounds like the best idea right now as I'm literally hitting the low storage space everyday. Also I would really like to restore my previous 45GB iPad mini backup, something I couldn't do with the 32GB.

    Nope, you should be fine. As long as you are within the return policy window and have all the paperwork and box, yer good to go.

    Thanks everyone I could tell I wasn't going to be happy with my $499 purchase unless I spent the extra $100. It might be highway robbery for apple to charge so much for the capacity increases but I'm so happy with this iPad I can't complain too much.

    And that is exactly why it is not highway robbery. You (and me) are willing to pay these prices. Apple will be perfectly happy to let you keep your 32gb device or even return it. :)

    I went for the 128GB mini with retina in White and wifi as I can tether my ipad to iPhone if I need 3G
