    Can you adopt me? <img class=" src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />

    I admire your appetite, but leave room for an iPad Pro...

     

    I'm hoping that I can scrape up dinero for a Mac Pro first of the year, then it's a rumored iPad Pro along with an iPhone 6 of some screen size as yet undetermined.

    Oh, I wish I could justify the Mac Pro.  I have ZERO use for something like that, but I want one so badly. :)

    The word glee comes to mind, but I think you'll have better response from friends and family as opposed to a website forum, getting a lame response from the likes of me.

    Look your friends in the eye, and tell them you were right and why you are so proud of yourself now. You'll be amazed at their response, it could very well be an eyeopener.

    i dont care what anyone else thinks about me. They like getting the Apple toys i give them. I am the first one to admit when I am wrong.

    Tallest was bullying me around and making fun of me and other people on this forum were joining in. Naturally, Im going to gloat on this forum.

    Ouch, yeah. :)

    But that's some sweet, sweet HW there.

    PS: I was thinking about waiting until the PS4 came out to see if I could get a really cheap PS3, since the only game I want to play is the new Tomb Raider.  But apparently it will be coming to OSX before the year is out, so ...

    It's a great game. In my mind it's tied with The Last of Us for game of the year.

    Don't let the sour grapes get you down. Kudos for calling it right.

    Got two 128 GB AT&T, also delivered by Dec 4th at the latest. Of the ten Apple stores within 50 miles, none had this configuration available for pickup.

    Ordered 12  for reselling purposes. Already had my dummy accounts ready. Gonna make a killing with this tight supply.  Thanks Apple!

    Man when I saw the reports last night I thought they were wrong for sure. Good thing I had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and checked my phone! Got a 32 GB space gray on the way! Now back to bed haha!

    iPad Air for me.

    Just received the 32GB version I ordered. Perfect for my needs. A world of difference compared to my 1st gen... A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE.

    But the Mini looks interesting (screen too small for my needs)

    No Apple stores have any configuration available for pickup... the article title kinda already told you that. :)
