Apple should be a little embarrassed to still sell notebook computers with only 128 GB non-removable storage... which is more like 100 GB with OS.
If it's your primary laptop, sure, but I'd rather save money on internal storage for something like a MacBook and get more RAM. I see your point, but I'm ok with it as an auxiliary 2nd machine.

The 128 iPad is actually a decent offer. Can I get a geek squad warrenty? You better ask me 7 times.
What are you gonna use the 128 gb for? On iPads you hardly take photos (afaik only my father does with his iPad Air 2), you don't need to use its internal storage if you use it to do anything creative like writing (actually you shouldn't, if iPad gets lost without a backup you are as good as effed), anything related to image editing can still be saved on the cloud. Only f you install a lot of games and play them all or if you edit videos on iPad (who does that?) you might need that big of a storage. iPhone storage needs are a different story tho

I get 30 GB of files per semester, and since all the content builds on itself I need access to all of my notes and papers. If the university had reliable WiFi, sure, but I have no control over when I will have access to my cloud.
