    Yep. Design it so only only media can be used and no data read write tasks that use the cpu. That way, security will not be compromised and more space with internal space for apps.

    I am already tapped out with a 64GB iPad. Does not take as long as some think, with larger apps, comics and videos. I do not even have space for tunes.

    I wonder how much business the market loses due to storage space constraints?

    Ok, you are the perfect person to ask this question to then.

    How much would you be willing to pay for a small box (half the size of the iPhone 4) that took any size SDHC card that could act as a wireless bonjour service provider for music, video and pictures?

    And lets say the box can be wall powered or battery powered and could last 24 hours on that battery.

    I think most people find that the high cost of data service to be a higher priority than needing more storage. But that is a lot of the issue. Everyone has a different requirement. I have a 32 Gb iPad and have no problems as long as I avoid having several videos and my full music cataloq installed. There are several options for adding storage to the iPad, but they are expensive. SD cards are handy things, but right now, why would a person want one above 16 Gb? When they get to 32Gb and above, they are expensive to use. To be honest, I prefer to have a bunch of small, cheap SD cards of around 256/512 Mb so that I can send files to others and forget about the cost, but I cannot find them anymore. It just goes to show how everyone has different needs.

    There are several devices in the $100-200 range that provide added memory for the iPad. It is not like people are forced to do without. Just that it requires another piece of hardware.

    I have a 64GB 4G iPad 3. I have about 18 GB free. I still have an air stash...and I have several SD cards...at least two of them are 32GB and several more are 16 GBs and 8GB. I practically have infinite storage. Movies and music can go on those cards. I even have a little box that holds 4 SD cards. Tiny things.

    The business world is, and will be moving further into cloud based operations. I have several friends that have company issued iPad 2s and they are all 16GB 3G models. With business based operation people are not putting their music and videos on them.

    Seadog, 7200 does face longtivity issues over a 5400 I heard. straight Solid State Drive do not write info fast enough with 30+ tracks loaded with vst effects. Hybids are the more future prove for audio engineering for sure.

    I think a $599 Mac Mini, upgrading my RAM myself to 8gb, and buying a external thunderbolt drive will be more than enough :)

    I happen to own twelve 6 gigabit SAS 15K RPM Hard Drives. They are the fastest platter based HDs on the planet right now. The best read speed they can maintain is 200 MegaBytes a second. And they don't even come close to the speeds of the SSD drives currently on the market. Which happens to be 520 MegaBytes per second for the roughly the same size drive and cost. So your statement that a SSD is not fast enough or not able to handle the required I/O operations per second is 100% BOGUS. In fact you couldn't be more wrong if you tried at this point.

    I suggest you get on Newegg and go read the specs for these drives before you type anything else on the subject matter.

    I am talking from people with experience with SSD mixing audio at continuous writing. They face issues of stability compared to HDD. Reaper and other demanding DAWs, encourage using 2 faster HDD than 5400 or Hybrid drives. Then again this was when they first where getting popular so things might have changed in SSD world. One thing is for sure, Reaper does not run well on one solid SSD at this point. ProTools is so over priced/rated and hyped its not even funny so I see why they would scam people into spending more on SSD just as they do with Digidesign. Maybe 2 SSD but that is pricey when a quality HDD does it fine at larger storage. These are not my opinions, they are others experiences with audio engineers. Why are you being so heated towards me? Be nice bro ha.
    If you have better advice, that's fine. Like I said SSD might be better for mixing since the last i heard about them being terrible was about 3 years ago.
