Apple is always foremost churning inventory -- hence no 128 GB IPad

Typical for Apple --- they put out models in 1/2 stages. They hope to get people to buy the newest release, even though it still is limited to 64 GB (I only have 5 left on mine) and in about 6 months they will probably release a 128 GB version, thus two sales events. It just shows that Apple cares most about MONEY -- no wonder they have so much cash at hand. I will wait for the 128 GB model. Hey, Gordon Gecko --- is greed really all that good? Ask the families of the Foxcon employees also. :mad:

I went with. A 32 gig this time. Seems 64 is so much for me on this ip2. Black , engraved " I love my wife ". So she feels better when balancing our checkbook this month.
Hope it works. I might have to turn this ip2 over to her also. The ipad3 she will not have. That's what I call it and what I will always call it. Not. " the new iPad ". Steve must be rolling his eyes up there over this stupid name . As long as the quality is Steve Jobs level quality I am satisfied.

I'm a tad envious, would love one, but just can't justify it. Daughter ordered hers earlier, so I can play with hers. Well I hope I can! :)

I take you've never bought a new car? To get closer to the subject at hand, in 1973-4 Hewlett Packard brought out the first LED "pocket" calculator. It cost $400. A year later they brought out the second model, much improved and with many more features/functions. It also cost $400. That's the way electronic technology works.

P.S. - Don't buy the 128 gb model - the 256 gb model will be out a few months after that...

P.P.S. - People stood in line for hours to put their employment application in with Foxconn, so, YES, ASK THE FAMILIES OF FOXCONN EMPLOYEES.


But, keep looking. You can always find something to b**** about...

I'll have to, as I know she'll Passcode lock it! But I've got a shoe in at least, it's our belated birthday present for her. ;)

I ordered a black 64GB + 4G. I would have bought an earlier iPad version but waited until they came out with a display that matched those of my 4 and 4S phones. I'm so glad apple put Retina Display technology into the new iPad.
