I think iPad will reach 1TB of storage before approaching 4GB of RAM...

My Note 3 already has 3 gb of memory and no stupid safari memory resetting tabs all the time or random crashing.

If Samsung can do it, Apple can do it.

That's a bit melodramatic. I'm on the iPad 3 and I've yet to find a game that doesn't run fine - and the only feature I can think of that I'm missing out on is Airdrop - which is pretty unimportant - especially when I've got the Flick app.

That said, if you can hold out, the next iPad will probably have 2gb ram.

Don't hold your breath for an iPad pro though.

I can only hold my breath for 60 seconds. Or I will die.

"I can only hold my breath for 60 seconds. Or I will die." totally sounds like the name of a Japanese videogame or anime or manga...
