128GB LTE @ $929 can't be selling well. I bought my open box MBA for $935... Price is getting to close to MBA MBP pricing and for the price I think most would go with a laptop. Something's gotta give
Funny enough flash prices have dropped flat in 2010, yet Apple pretends they didn't and continually overcharges customers for capacity. The 128gb model should easily fit the 64gb price point but alas Apple plays us for dumb and adds 100 charge for the extra 64gb space.
iPod touch is even more hilarious, same price points for 3 years in which 2 of the years the product hadn't even changed.
Apple is looking for profits, if people continue to buy the 16gb model they'll continue to milk the cow.
