whats the point of it? i mean honestly, i have an iphone and an ipad, why would i need a mini? why would anyone else want a mini? i mean because of financial reasons? i cant see the mini being that much cheaper than the original, and why they would want a device with less real estate. i mean does apple want a variety of products? than why did they discontinue the 17inch MBP? imo, if they go through with it, its going to be a flop. im not going to say its gonna be horrible, but i doubt its going to meet expectations. just a waste of resources, why not invest on something else and bring something unique to the table. is that it apple? your just going to milk the iphone/ipad till u get sucked dry?
