New iPad with insane storage costs as much as a MacBook Air
No, no, the iPad hasn’t gotten any faster, bigger or thinner: instead, just like we heard yesterday, Apple has upped the storage space on its slate to a whopping 128GB – along with an equally large price tag.
Unless you have mountains of music, video and apps, you might struggle to fill the whole 128GB, but Apple’s not just targeting home surfers with this slate: it’s aiming at professional designers and producers as well, whose files can eat up space in no time at at all.
Available from 5 February in either the black or white, the standard Wi-Fi 128GB new iPad model will set you back £649, whilst the iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular will cost an eye-watering £739, not to mention a data plan on top of that which makes it nearly the same price as a MacBook Air.
Do you need an enormous amount of space on your iPad, or is this just a bit too much? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
