For some businesses it is. So don't buy it and leave more supply for those of us that need it.

2 months ago they were focused on holiday sales. And few folks need something that big so it wasn't likely to sell well enough to push it.

I agree 100%. I have an 11" Air and an iPad both and when I travel for business (i.e. light) I just take my Air with me because for weighing almost the same, Air is a full fledged computer, running MS Office, being able to print to ANY printer and be able to true multitask with simultaneous windows open side by side, while the iPad is an enlarged iPhone with limited capabilities.

I could use a 128GB iPhone. I use it as my iPod and video player. Could easily fill up that space and not have even a 1/4 of my library on it.

you would need to be brain dead to pay this much for a tablet running a Mickey Mouse OS.

Hmm, 639 or 739 for a 128GB iPad, or a MacBook Pro for 999! You have seriously got to want the iPad portability to spend that much, especially considering the apps and power a Windows Pro running tablet can get.

Then again I spent 599 on a 32GB iPhone 5 so I'm as much a mugg as anyone who buy's a 128GB iPad

The other half of the things that laptops do only 5% of the user base actually does it.

At my local apple store with my brand new black 128 ipad connected to my computer as it restores my backup. I love the fact that I know longer need to cringe about memory rationing. Its soo beautiful.

A $500 laptop does that as well so why even buy the 16Gb ipad?

SUPPLY CONSTRAINTS?????

I thought SUPPLY CONSTRAINTS were a part of the game. There are always supply constraints....has there ever been a new APPL product release without some type of supply constraint?

Apple is cool, Apple is hard to get, buy now.....

6) some people don't trust or want to use cloud services

7) Speed, if you have a 2GB file, it is going to be faster to open, and easier to work with it on the local storage. multiply this out for a number of files.

8) many othe reasons that I'm to tired to think of right now.
The corporation I work for requires iCloud be deactivated if I want to use my iPhone/iPad for corporate email. Therefore, the cloud isn't an option. There's another very, very good reason for Apple to stop screwing over its loyal customers with these ridiculous flash prices.

At that price it's more of a yPad than an iPad.

Seriously, just get the base model and an SD card and . . . oh, right.

Why Apple? Why push a new high price instead of cutting current prices or just sitting on it till a model update?
For enterprises, which I'm assuming is the target market for this model, it's a drop in the bucket. I know a lot of sales guys who have been wishing for a higher capacity iPad. This fits the bill nicely.

799/929 is just too much.
And that's why Apple is a $100B company and you're just sitting to your computer deciding on how they should run their business.

Seriously though, Apple knows their customers will pay these prices and if you ran Apple's business with clientele that tend to have deeper pockets you'd do the same thing. Don't lie.

And I doubt there was ever a chicken that actually considered the benefits to travelling to the other side of the road . . .

Apple is just testing the waters to see who will bite.

Once sales drop off the price will drop.

But it is like Apple, that's why they did it. This isn't a rumor. The prices are set. I'll never live to understand this forum as to why the continue to be surprised at how Apple prices their products.
