from 16GB+16GB is only $100.. yet for $200 more you get 48GB!!!
I think we have a true sherlock in the macrumors family.
pure mathematical genius
Sure, it's not logical that you pay the same price to go from 16GB to 32GB and from 32GB to 64GB, but that's how Apple's pricing scheme has always worked, and it's to encourage you to buy the bigger model which has a larger profit margin.
If you don't need 64GB though, you don't have to fall for this marketing trick and just buy the model you think you really need.
$200 for 48GB more is hardly a "deal", but thats what I'm getting anyway.
Anyone have that link to the cost breakdown of the actual NAND apple uses? I remember it being just a few dollars between 16GB -> 32GB -> 64GB but Apple $100 per tier.
Regardless, the best "value" is getting exactly what you need and nothing more or nothing less.
i was thinking the same thing..though was Watson a part of this breakthrough?
when i got my ipad 2 i went with 16gb ive never seen a need for more storage as i dont fill my device up with music and only put a few movies on when i travel. I've done the same thing with all my iphones started with 4gb on the original and always got the minium storage they sold. I'm really thinking about going all in and getting a 64gb ipad this time around and may do the same thing if I upgrade to the iphone 5 whenever we see that come out.
My god, another "My choice is best" thread. If you're happy with your device, good for you. Different people, different needs.
Here it is:
That's for the iPhone 4S but the new iPad's NAND should be very similar.
64GB is no value if you don't need to spend the extra $100. I suppose the 180 oz tube of preparation H is a better value than the 2 oz tube, but I'll stick with the 2 oz thank you very much.
Not a great value if I only use 0-14gb.
Given how bloated some of the of the Retina Apps are going to be, 64GB is a safe bet, which is why I got that. I rarely maxed out my 64GB iPad 2 unless I loaded it full of movies (Digital Copy FTW). I think that may be more of an issue as Retina-optimized apps hit the App Store.
I could have gone my entire life without knowing this.
You must be kidding, right?
Yeap I was right. 64 is the way to go
