Here is an altered version of previous theory: Apple makes good margin off the Air / now Air 2. Makes good margin off of the phone and laptops. Since iPads can be seen as a replacement for a second computer in the home, it seems they don't want this lower margin Mini 3 cutting into its high margin products. They specifically don't want the mini 3 cutting into the Air/Air 2 margins. So why sell the Mini/Mini 2 cheap? Probably for 2 reasons:   1) Apple has no choice - if...
Agreed. Not sure why they called it a "3", when it should have been a "2S" at the most. Or they shouldn't have even mentioned it. Maybe they want two distinct categories, Air and the "lowly" mini. Oh well, Apple is a company that is hard to figure out sometimes. Just like what seems like two steps back on the Mac mini. Maybe they just want to sell MacBooks and not Mac minis. 
Just kidding, but they could also throw in the phone hardware and claim it to be the world's largest cellphone. A lot of people would buy it.
Is it exactly the same chip? What about external drive specs and buses and all of that biz? Then you can't run OS X - for better or worse. Just asking as we have a Chromebook (the old 720) as getting the C720 sounds like a good idea for the average person. Depends on what you want to do with your computer...
I'm thinking one or more of the below needs to be done:   1) Make and sell it cheaper (while keeping most of the   2) Add more features that make it more compelling to buy ("a must buy")   3) Give people a reason to buy one (new buyer or someone upgrading) Unfortunately, people don't want tablets all that much when they have their smartphone. Your smartphone does "everything" and it fits in your pocket (not sure about the new Google phone). We have an iPad and two laptops...
Must be for sure. The Air 2 is a huge upgrade (to me). Primo product. Priced fair, but too expensive to be a regular consumer product.
Maybe they should have called it to 2S rather than the 3. Smaller upgrade than the iPhone 5 to 5S.
You could hook up the AppleTV to a regular 24" display and have a computer of sorts using your iPhone/iPad?
Probably waited too long to admit that their software has bugs...
Seems like Apple wants to tease you with the cheaper product and expect or hope you to spend the extra $$ for the more expensive iPad with far more storage. Sounds like their iCloud plans: You either get 20 GB or 200GB and higher. No 100GB. So, 20GB is not enough for many people, and 100GB is not there, so they are trying to tease you in and try to get you to dole out $3.99 a month. No thanks, there are 100GB plans out there that are more affordable and most people are not...
