Exactly!!! I bought an HP laptop for $580 with the following specs: AMD A10 processor, 6GB RAM, 640GB HD, backlit keyboard, Beats Audio, 9hr battery, HD webcam, and a fingerprint scanner (lol). I later spent $20 on GSkill 8GB RAM.

Easily one of the best purchases I have ever made, but $800 for locked down tablet with a boring interface? I'll pass!

I like the iPad as much as anyone else, but at what point do you say, "Okay, that's just too much?"

Please correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Ipad 4 come out last year, with like an updated A6X processor or something? I remember reading announcements for it around October and November about the same time they announced the mini. Was it delayed so they can increase the storage?

Yeah, it would be different. I'll take a $399 Nexus 10 with a better resolution display, better cpu and is more than half the price. W's! Oh, it also has Jelly Bean, which makes iOS look like it's bald headed stepchild.

I mean the people saying that 128gb is overkill because its on an iPad. Don't mean the specs. The Nexus 10 is an amazing tablet, gonna pick up a Nexus 7 myself pretty soon I'm just saying these comment threads are usually very one sided toward one side or the other.

What!!!! I mean Apple has always overpriced their stuff but there's no way to justify an 800 dollar iPad. Get a Windows 8 Ultra book! Wtf?!?!

While I agree this price is stupid high the tablet ipad4 is THE tablet to beat period.. You can have your cheap plastic Frisbee N10 with the tiniest tablet app selection.. I don't want phone apps to make up my selection when working on a tablet.. What I want is JB on my iPad 4.. Best s**t ever.. N10 lost me with SS..

"When working on a tablet" you working on an Ipad? you are kidding right? Ipad is nothing but a toy that will never get any serious work done!!....And why do yoy worry about cheap plastic on Nexus 10 if you are going to wrap the tablet with a case? be it Android or Ipad?

Yes I'm completely serious.. I'm a professional and often take either my Asus Infiniti tf700 or my iPad 4.. I use it in conjunction with docs to go with a keyboard and also in presentations I use my iPad with a stylus for groups in meetings. Not that I need to explain to you how I make a living. Also I have a child and would never trust him with a SS product even in a case.. Not to mention the weak graphic chip inside the N10 or the weak library of apps that I sometimes require.. Maybe when the play store grows up and has a healthy selection of tablet apps ill use my Infiniti more but until then the iPad is the tablet to own... I will say it again though the price for this particular iPad is stupid expensive.. I will be ordering a surface pro when it's released for hard work while at home.. As it stands my laptop almost never gets used

Are they stupid or something? 700$ for a ipad? U might as well buy a laptop/Mac book with that kind of money. I mean seriously what kind of idiot would shell out 700-900$ for a WAY OVER PRICE IPAD??

No, a MacBook is over 2k....lol, I can get a high quality sony laptop with 5 yr warranty for 800.00....major ripoff, these iProducts. But, in America, people just do not have common sense - people here love their fashionable name brands, and will not open their eyes up to what other possibilities lie beyond.

Wow, when you compare what you get with an ipad with a Nexus 10 or 7...there is just no debate...NEXUS wins...
unless, you are Wendy, then I guess you can afford to blow your money on iNFERIOR products. I know here in the states people will buy this thinking that they are now superdeeduper cool...if blowing money is cool...then, I guess I am not.

Apple knows that Microsoft is releasing the Surface Pro on Feb 8 and it is trying to get as many sales as it can before the release. There is no comparison, APPLE LOSES ,Tablet Computer against a tablet. Spend your money wisely
