I was really hoping for a 200 dollar price point on this one. In the end I think I will hold off for a price drop in 6 months

My problem is why do they have to take a step backwards to move forward with a new product. A5 instead of A6, no retina display. It's just so predictable. Next years model will be what this years model should have been. They will get on stage next year and show the ipad mini two with the A6 and retina display for the same great low price and all the idiots in the audience will applaud like they have just been given an amazing surprise. What is the difference to them in price, a few bucks when their ordering millions of processors and displays. It may cost them lets say 20 bucks more per unit but will cost their loyal followers another $329 and up next year. They do this to get people to buy the next one a year later(or six months). The problem is that people are finally wising up. I see plenty of comments on this site of people who are already willing to wait for the next one because they know it will be what this one should have been. Their greed is legendary.
I use to get the latest greatest but now I skip generations.

Outdated already, the only selling point is the smaller size, no retina display and lacking a lit of the current generation iPad, as an Apple Fanboy, I was greatly disappointed in the mini. Apple better step up their game, the initial looks of the Microsoft Surface is pretty awesome!!!

Its over priced and not really needed the iPad is a great size not that I'd buy one because I hate the tablet market, I'd rather buy something with more power and ability, like the MacBook Air

There's an interesting thing in America (assuming you live in America) called the free market system. You should really study it and find out how it works.

You should take your own advice and study the free market system. But study how it actually works in reality, not the business-biased crap you find in books. One of the main principles of the free market system is that both parties in a transaction expect to gain from it. When both parties are happy with their exchange, they do business again. If one party or both parties are not happy with their exchange, they don't do business again. It's a simple principle.
Unfortunately, that most basic principle is where the majority completely screws it up. The majority is stupid and continually opens their wallets back up to the same companies that screw them time and time again. Those companies thus have no incentive to compete because they know that the stupid will line up in droves to get raped. Thanks to the stupid majority, the free market only rewards greedy companies with very good marketing departments. And that is how you end up with Apple.
In the words of my all-time favorite comedian,"You can't fix stupid." As long as stupid makes up the majority, nothing will change.

This is a site for apple products. Some of you seem to be very much against apple. Which makes me wonder why you are on this site at all. There is another site called modmymobile.com that I think might be better suited for you.

When you say, "the majority is stupid," what you really mean is that the majority disagrees with you and it bugs you. It doesn't make them stupid. It makes them different.
BTW, if you hate Apple products so much why the hell are you on this forum? It'd be like me visiting a University of Alabama merchandise store and kicking and screaming about how much I hate everything in the store.

In any case, when you call other people stupid for buying Apple products then say that Apple continually rips off their customers it isn't much of a stretch at all to infer from that that you hate Apple products, and I'd be willing to bet money that I'm not the only person here who thought that.

Power Macintosh 8500/120 (it still works!)
Power Mac G4 Cube
PowerBook G4 500 (case made of Titanium, but it didn't survive the free fall from the 3rd floor balcony - now rests in a box in pieces)
iPhone (later sold to buy...)
iPhone 3GS (later sold to buy...)
iPad 3g/wifi (1st gen)
Apple TV2 (1st gen, 720p)
iMac 27" (2011)
I do not hate Apple products, I just hate the ridiculous prices. The only products in that list that I bought myself were the Mac mini and Apple TV2, and the mini only because it was a customer return and I had a friend that worked at the Apple store that had it - it's fully loaded but I got it for $400. Everything else was either free (512K found in an abandoned apartment in 1990, Cube picked up at a yard sale and thought to be non-functional - $0), a gift (8500/120, PowerBook), or purchased by my company (everything else). If I had actually bought everything in that list at retail myself, I would have spent over $17,000.
Do you see $17,000 of value in that list? I sure don't. Even excluding the 512K and 8500/120, it's still roughly $10,000 for the rest. Utterly ridiculous. And that's why when it comes to spending my own money, Apple is not even considered.
