The difference is like $200 to $300? Let me check the Apple Store... My rMini LTE 32GB cost me $870 and the iAir Wi-Fi 128GB sells for $1,108. That is a difference of $238 for a larger screen and 96GB more of storage space.

The idea is to start saving up now, and who knows, by the time I buy, iPad Pro might be out for the same price.

For some reason, I just find myself coming back to my iPad 2 even though both the retina Mini and my iPad 2 are here next to me. I have a sneaking suspicion that it is just too small.

That's pretty close to us, what currency? Here a 128 GB iPad Air Wi-Fi is $1200, the 32 GB Air is $900. So $300 for the extra 96 GB and same screen. I just find $1200 a bit OTT for what it is.

I see you mentioned the Singapore store in another thread, $1 SGD = $0.98 NZD so at currency rates $1200 NZD works out to around $1225 SGD. Out of interest what does a PS4 retail for there?

Apparently the PS4 will sell for $639 when released.

Oh well not as big of a savings as I thought it might be based on the $92 Air difference, only works out to $10.

I see lots of people talking about an ipad pro. Is this based on the macbook air/pro versions, and the assumption that we'll have a pro ipad as we now have the air?

Well, it is supposed to be larger and be more powerful than the ipad air. But of course this is all rumour. Some are saying it maybe a hybrid mac/ipad. Also, the rumour is that it may come out in may. But again, this is all rumour.

I see. Well I'd like it to be true as I'm still running an iPad 2. Between me and my gf, it gets used every day still, but mostly for Netflix and internet use. I'm still tempted by the air but the 1gb ram is disappointing as it perhaps confirms apple aren't interested in 'true multitasking', something I'd love out of a tablet. I'd probably buy an surface pro 2 if I could justify the money.

The iPad Pro is the 12.9" iPad scheduled for launch in 2014.

You really want to try using a friend's Windows 8 tablet in real life first. Unless you have Modern UI apps to use, in which case a Windows 8 is fine, but Windows desktop programs are very hard to click accurately using thumbs or fingers.
