    Well Apple, thanks for making my 6 month old 'New' iPad kinda...redundant.

    Also, I knew calling the iPad introduced in March the new iPad was a bad idea. It kinda threw a spanner in the works of naming the product line up :P

    Nope! I love my 2011 21.5", 1TB, 10GB RAM just a little more now. If I want to upgrade the ram again, no problem. Plus, it was the same price as the bottom end New iMac so... I can't believe they've lumped a extra 100 on the price!

    Does the fusion drive means they will stop offering both an SSD and a HDD as they used to do?
    I think, I remember they had something like a 256GB SSD + a 3TB HDD.

    Also the 2GB GTX680M made my day

    You can still upgrade the RAM on the 27". Though I'm not sure what I can use more than 8GB of RAM for.

    Well, you can do with an iPad many things you can with a laptop. Pay bills, surf the web, check your mail and then some. So if you are only interested in the above then yes an iPad is like a laptop.

    Although I think it's good to have a laptop to transfer movies and music to the iPad.

    The great part is that over the years, you can still tell everyone you have the New iPad. It is ageless.

    I have a 3 and I will be keeping it. I just need it to do what I need, rather than worrying about specs, and it still does that. The only issue will be down the road if they put new features on the iPad 3.5 and decide not to put them on the 3. At that point, I will probably update to whatever iPad is newest (assuming there isn't another tablet available that I feel will better suit my needs).

    The way I use the iPad, I am really at the law of diminishing returns. I had the Original and wanted Retina and LTE (in the USA), which I got with the 3. If I played games on it, I would probably be selling my New iPad at this point, but I don't, so I don't really need the extra power.

    I have no interest in the mini, but I can see where it would creep into some of the Touch sales. Many got the Touch because they wanted something similar to an iPhone without a contract. I am sure some of those people will want something pocketable, but for those that just wanted the cheapest iOS, I would not be surprised to see them pay a bit more for the mini. I have always like the Touch as an alternative to the iPhone, but the mini probably fits that better if you are mainly using it around the house.

    The actual 4th gen ipad is making me think hard into getting one! It's extremely powerful.

    Wow! If I had known it had lightning, I would have called it "iPad 1 Million" (said with my best Dr. Evil impression).

    Fingers crossed, i should have my iPhone today, assuming they're in stock. On the phone now

    edit: took 20 minutes for them to answer! I got to reserve one online and hope i'm 'lucky' enough to be selected to pick up a handset. Wow.

    ffs I have to block the apple.com site from me. I keep looking and I want a mbp so freakin badly!!! I just keep killing myself thinking about the price and specs.

    Someone help me figure this out. PLEASE!! My current laptop was only $1250 and the specs....

    Here's the difference:

    17" screen vs 15.4"
    1920 x 180 vs 1680 x 1050 (this I can actually be fine with.. just the principle of it I guess)
    1TB hdd vs 500GB hdd
    GTX660M vs GT650M
    8GB RAM vs 4GB RAM

    $1250 vs $1899

    If I upgrade some of the components that can match what I have now, it'll just increase the price!

    @Tut and MjW, how long after ordering online did you receive your handset, was it actually 4 weeks?

    @F34R, That's the trade off your going to have to live with, depends what your going to use it for really. If your going to use it for specific reasons where a Mac often beats Windows it'll be worth it. If your going to want it just for browsing the internet and maybe a few games, it won't be worth it. At all.

    I'm still dying to get my hands on Logic as well as i find Serato SL works better with the Mac operating system and even then i'm still struggling to justify to myself why I need one, even though my needs fit it.

    I don't know about ordering from apple. I pre-ordered mine from the carrier, and got it on launch day.

    Seem like you made the right choice already. You can't really beat the bang for the buck of that asus by anything else.

    Yeah, I know. I'm getting torn between the ideology of the "bang/buck", and the sheer obsessive desire to get a mbp lol. I used one at Best Buy today, and if I had the money, I would have gotten it today lol. ffs!! APPLE!!! lol

    I'd buy a mbp, 4th gen ipad, and an iMac in a single day. lol

    I thought I asked but it seems I didn't.

    In the past Apple offered both a HDD and an SSD in iMacs. It did work in the same manner as their Fusion drive right?
    Now they just offer a hybrid drive that does the same thing?

    It's based on their software. So, I'm going to say, "no". With it before, I'm guess all the data management between ssd and hdd were done by the users. Now, the OS will determine what goes on the SSD and what stays on the HDD.
