    My experience with the mini is that it can be less stable - i.e. it can drop the signal - re wifi than is the standard iPad; however, it is supremely portable. Only you can answer the question of what it is that you want (or need) from such a device.

    It'd be good to have 128GB of storage in my iPhone for my music and photo collection. Same reason for buying the top end storage Air. I can fit more on it. 16GB is too small.

    Well, look. The iPhone 6+ will be strapped to the head to do phone stuff; the iPhone 5S is, like, totally useless, so it'll be framed and displayed prominently; The iPad Air 2 will be for the right hand; the iPad Mini 4 will be for the left hand; the iPad 1 be for the left foot; the iPad 4 will be for the right food; the 13" MBP will display MR; the MBA will stream all the Apple Keynotes on a loop; the 15" MBP will be a dedicated Steve Jobs shrine; the 2011 Mac Mini will be used as a coaster.

    Totally reasonable.

    I heard they were saving it being able to do "things" until they get the iPad Pro 2

    Get the Air for photos, web browsing, gaming, etc. Get the phone for...phone stuff. Forget about the Mini.

    One-third the way to your goal, congrats!
    Yes, but it's a solid 110GB.
    Half way there!

    The iPad mini 4 is £70 cheaper online than buying from Apple direct.

    If money mattered to you, you wouldn't buy so many redundant devices.

    How are they redundant?

    The storage inside is partitioned, the 128gb is used for boot, recovery, apps, and what's left is the space for your apps and data. Plus, it's like buying a 500gb hard drive, we're still dealing with x bits in y bytes.

    They're essentially the same device with slightly different sizes.

    You can't possibly expect me to believe you don't know that. Either that or you're bloody delusional.

    I have an iPad Air and I can't even figure out a good use for it. I'd take my MacBook or iPhone 90% of the time over an iPad.

    That said, I'm not sure why you'd 2 new iPads in addition to 2 existing models. Perhaps sell off the old ones.

    At the beginning of the thread it looked like you don't even have enough money to afford these without using credit. This isn't a waste of money--- it's a waste of money you don't have. If you're waiting for your mother to pay you back... why not be patient and buy each item when you can actually afford to do so.

    I'm still baffled why anyone would need 2 iPads and an iPhone. But to each his own. For the amount of money being spent here, I think a MBA would be a better deal.

    Buy what you want. When you can.
    Trade in or sell down to family and friends to nelp get the latest. Be wise with money now - it will help you a lifetime
