    Or wait for an iPhone 5S rumored to be due for release in May-June 2013 ;)

    Oh wait, what about an iPhone 6 probably due for release in 2014?

    I'm just bummed that my 4th Gen 64 GB iPad I bought in Dec is already getting trounced by a newer 128 GB version due on Feb 5th! For $100 more to double up the memory capacity was a no brainer as it would be much more ideal for video content storage :(

    On a happier note, I'm going to the Apple Store in Carlsbad to pick up my refurb iMac :)

    BB, do you also think Apple is suffering from an internal conflict (more so than ever) after Job's passing?!

    Think of all the iPad Mini buyers who will tear their hair out when the retina version comes out.:D

    No, I think the period of turmoil has passed with the recent reorganization. Forestall is gone (Mansfield has unretired), and Ive is now in control of both product design and interface design. I expect even greater synergy of Apple products going forward. The ecosystem will be stronger.

    Hahahahhahahaha ....... Hey now, don't be getting all "Lost in Space Robot" on me, just because you can't focus a camera Ol' Boy.

    It was a nice try on your behalf anyway, better luck next time.

    Just rumors at this point, but I would be surprised if they didn't do an update for the Mini in the next 6 months. They didn't have retina to start with due to the power/thickness/battery issues with the retina displays. The newer IGZO Sharp displays they are using now require less power to operate and aren't as thick as the iPad retina screens, which need two backlights. I don't know how soon the Mini will go retina, but I expect the next version will be.

    Even a dummy like me knew not to buy an iPad Mini based on Gen 2! I'm very happy with this Gen 4, but if I was within the 30 days return period, I would have gladly pony up the extra $100 to go from 64 Gigs to 128 Gigs. I'm not much into the thinner and perhaps a bit smaller (as rumored) Gen 5 iPad.

    Worst case scenario, I have a few Kids, some Ex's, some past sugar babies and some future SB's I can always pawn off my very lightly used Apple products to! Ah, and then there's the Ultimate Moocher: Jack Glen Frost III

    Agreed. Going from 16GB to 32GB, not a big jump. Going from 32GB to 64GB, a bit of a jump. But, going from 64GB to 128GB is a big jump in storage for only $100 more. A "no-brainer" if you were going to pony up for the 64GB model anyway.

    Luckily, Apple products have a high resale value. If you sell off your old model before the new one comes out, you can get as much as 3/4 the upgrade cost.
