    Hooray for even less expandable computers. Might work for laptops, but defeats the point of a desktop. Can't be good for thermals either.

    I really don't like how he is explaining this 'fusion' hard drive as if it is something they came up with. Hybrid hdd's have been about for a while

    $1299/$1799! Ok that definitely deserves a clap.

    Doubt it will. 7.9'' is too big for an MP3 player.

    How many people buy standalone mp3 players nowdays. Smartphones have taken over.

    The ipod nano will cover the majority of dedicated mp3 player market.

    Not to mention apple will probably be pushing the "holding it in one hand" angle along with the size/weight dimensions.

    Quite more than you would think. I had a friend who just bought a new Classic iPod a few months ago. I will be very surprised if the iPad mini eats into the iPods market.

    $29 is a tiny gap.

    Better to cannibalize yourself than waiting to be cannibalized. Apple doesn't care what Apple product you buy, as long as you buy one.

    Nobody else competes against the ipod touch.

    And the nano competitors have taken a turn for the worse. (though not unlike the nano)

    I wouldn't be surprised if the retina ipad gets updated with the iphone next year.

    But it's still a gap for two different markets. If i went out and i wanted an iPod I wouldn't come home with an iPad mini just because it's only $29 more expensive.

    Was thinking about getting the new iPad mini... Spec wise, killed it for me.

    4th gen iPad is a maybe. 27" new iMac is for sure.

    I'll have to upload the near 100 pics I took of the video stream in a couple hours.

    My point isn't about competition. It's about money.


    As for competition, nobody will walk into an Apple Store looking wanting to buy an iPod Touch and walk out with an iPad Mini. Different tools. You can't jog with an iPad.

    Right, but ipod touch sales are dropping. People weren't happy with the current prices. Funny how apple finally made a decent ipod touch when it matters the least.

    Yeah, an A5 CPU/GPU used in the 4s and ipad 2, really cutting edge.

    Yeah, and the ipod touch isn't so good for that either compared to the nano or even shuffle.

    The iPod Touch accounts for more than half of iPod sales. That won't change any time soon. iPod Touch owners are very likely to own another iPod.

    And if it does change, Apple is fine with that. They self disrupt all the time.
