Could this coming iPad mini move next "big" iPad launch to later than the usual March timetable? Any thoughts?

That could be speculated, but I didn't say that. What I can say China does care about is population control

Your math is incorrect.

It's what we like to call in the quality industry as a "workaround"

I'll believe it when I see it. There's basically nothing new about this iPad or exciting in comparison to the current one.

A new iMac would be much more exciting at this point. A new Mac Pro would be even better at this point.

I have an original iPad, but it doesn't get all that much use. It's not enough of a jump in convenience as far as carrying it around goes in comparison to a Macbook.

If they release an iPad mini, I will almost definitely pick one up if the price is right. It would perfectly hit the sweet spot of something bigger than an iPhone for traveling.

Oh jesus christ, I have to explain this to you??? It was in quotes, sir. As in, I was quoting...a movie. Austin Powers, to be precise.

Seriously, I love how people feel the need to correct what was obviously a joke.

Wow. Just wow.

My wife wants one, too. Family of 4. So 33% plus 25% is 58%. 58% of all people want one!

New and exciting about this iPad: Every freaking kid in the developed world will want one. And at ~$250, they will likely get one too. = Apple will sell 5 million plus by Christmas if they make them fast enough.

New and exiting about iMac: Spec bump, although a needed one. = Apple will sell maybe 10-20k by Christmas.

The world has gone mobile and your beloved Apple is a consumer products company, not a computer company.

I'll order 3 the day they are announced. Perfect Christmas gifts for the kids, who won't keep their sticky hands off my iPad. A smaller model with a lower price tag will fit the need perfectly.

Apple will sell a ton of these.

Glad to see some people have a sense of humor about this.

But, I do not believe your 58% statement. I happen to know that 73% of all statistics are made up.

With all of the leaks happening, I would suggest that Foxconn installs machine guard towers at crucial points in and around their factories. They should also thoroughly search everybody entering and leaving the premises.

Thieves and criminals should know that if you try to steal Apple products, then you might end up in deep ****. That might make them think twice before stealing.

BUT 73% of the time, it works EVERY time.



On a serious note, I can see buying 1 of these for sure, possibly 2 if they're priced around $249 - $299.
