Discount? I'd pay at least $40/month more. 
Not surprising. Even rocket scientists cannot use the newest technologies. The Curiosity Rover's computer uses a (hardened) PowerPC chip, far less powerful than those in the newest phones. This is generally true of all satellites launched. These systems are in design 20 years before launch and are paced through years of certification and testing.    The fact that it would take years to certify and harden devices the President and other high ranking officials use is not...
Rate data without absolute sale data is worthless.
I would consider this unlikely, but today, wishing my iPad was the size of a pad of paper (8 1/2 x 11), I may have to reconsider. An iPad that size and the same weight of a pad of paper might be useful.

The purpose behind the numbers being pushed is to create a market which doesn't yet exist. Most people want to go with the herd as consumers, and most developers do also. Where the herd is is where you can be confident that you're not making a mistake. As has been noted in the restaurant business, if you want to know which restaurant to eat at, look for the restaurant with long lines. Apple certainly gets the benefit of long lines -- you don't think long lines at an Apple...
I tell you what my solution is likely to be -- pricey and risky. Buy a Mac Pro when it comes out in December and use the old iMac as dumb screen.
