    Yeah the specifications are kinda disappointing but i think that better hardware wont fit in a such small device like the ipad mini.

    If it fits in the iPhone 5, surely those engineers could fit them in the iPad mini.

    I quite like the mini. My friend bought one and it feels so much more comfortable to use than my iPad 3. It doesn't hurt the wrist when holding it. The thing is just so thin and so light it's unreal.

    Yeah you are right. I have the same question concerning the iPod Touch, why doesnt it have same specs as iphone5. I guess its business stuff.

    The size makes sense... The specs don't. Kinda win/lose.

    The majority of users don't look at specs.

    Oh I don't know, how about because people won't pay $499+ for it. At least it has the same screen as the 5. That is a first.

    The ipod touch is already overpriced as it is so why not add better hardware.

    Depends what you want to use it for...

    There are reasons why so many professionals use iMac's and MBP's. I'd love to see a Windows machine run Logic... Oh wait... They can't.

    They cant only because Logic is for MAC and that is an invalid statement as we are talking about hardware. If it would be for windows it would run 2x faster. Real professionals use special monitors and beast machines.

    oh right, so now you know what every professional needs? If your doing CAD/CAM work then yeah, a beast PC is needed... I don't think every professional needs a beast PC. As I said, there are reasons why people use Macs over a traditional PC otherwise they wouldn't be everywhere. For example, where I work, the communication and design department has over 20 iMacs and not a single PC. Kind of throws your statement about real professionals out of the window.

    I'm not arguing that Apple products are often overpriced for the hardware you get inside of them because they are, the same way Alienware are guilty of overcharging for lesser parts on PC's however to claim that real professionals only use beast PC's is very shortsighted on your behalf.

    There are times when a PC is better and there are times where a Mac is better. As I said - there are reasons why so many professionals decide to use a Mac over a PC.

    I know a lot of professionals who uses set ups with no apple devices at all and those include professional car designers, video animators, graphic designers, digital artists etc.

    But that doesn't mean that professionals don't use Apple products. You can't seem to grasp that it isn't all about power, not everyone needs or wants to use a Windows product. That doesn't mean your wrong, as you said you know professionals that don't use Apple but i know professionals that do use Apple.

    My main gripe is with your statement that real professionals don't use Apple, when that is clearly wrong.

    Ok... High end iMac doesn't have worse performance than a windows machine that has the same hardware. The iMac just has a higher price.

    Lets just agree on that Professionals use both MAC and PC, however in most cases PCs are being used if high end power is required and in professional categories high end hardware which provides very good performance is a big requirement. In the music category some professionals use Macs for a cleaner and more simple interface and look.

    Thats logic but the price and the hardware ratio is the problem in Apple products. With the amount of money a high end imac costs you can buy a pc with 3x times better hardware for the same price. You can easily build yourself for 800$ a pc with same specs as a 2500$ high end imac.

    I can agree with this more, not 100% though. It's more than just musicians that use Macs and i don't think the cleaner look is why they prefer it.

    I should add that i'm not an 'Apple Defender' by any stretch of the imagination.

    Yeah I can. But I will most definitely not.

    I did it last time. I'm tired of windows and PC building, plus why not give a try to Apple's ecosystem.

    I didnt know that overpriced hardware and slow software is considered an ecosystem.

    Believe me guys i dont hate apple and i have many apple devices and a mac at home but there is nothing attractive in their products excluding the design. Mac computers have a very nice design, probably the best one but their hardware is awful. Same with the software. It has a very clean and nice looking interface and its also very simple to use but its slow in terms of performance.

    And you know, even if it's not, well at least iPhone pics will get the orientation right.

    Also don't start hate posts by "Believe me, I don't hate".
