    Be sure to lodge that complaint for 'JanePete' who was the first to bring up iPads and has an extensive history of arguing and hijacking threads under several names because each time it gets ...

    Whoosh! Wiggle wiggle. If you think something is a ripoff, don't buy it. There are alternatives. You're still ignoring that the iPad mini 3 is cheaper than the same capacity and lower configuration ...

    Tim still has your phone number, doesn't he? Maybe you should call Tim. He must have misplaced it. In other words, anyone who disagrees with your opinion is an idiot. That's nothing more than a ...

    It's the 3rd generation iPad mini, so Apple is calling it what the world will be calling it, iPad mini 3. Simple and straightforward, which anyone can understand. Apple's official name for the 3rd ...
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    Since it hasn't been discontinued and the specs are on Apple's web site, they do.
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    Nope. Macs with the same names confuse people to no end. Ask someone what Mac they have and they will say 'iMac' or 'MacBook Pro'. For the iMac, that could be anything in the last 16 years! You ...

    The iPad mini 3 is not an 'S' version and people should check the specs before buying, not after. There are also other differences than just TouchID, plus it's $100 cheaper for the middle and top ...
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    It's $100 less than the entry price just a week ago, making it even cheaper and more accessible, and you keep ignoring that the vast majority of people configure it at the time of purchase and ...

    The user could resell the leftover 8 gig, which might net them $40 or so since it's used memory without a warranty. Hardly worth the bother.
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    You're not buying a 'second 8 gig'. You're buying 16 gig, which is $184 at Crucial . Except they aren't doing that at all. Apple's sales have greatly outpaced the industry as a whole for many ...

    I'm not apologizing for anyone and I didn't say anything about the name, but at least people can figure out which iPad it is, versus naming Macs all with the same model name regardless of generation. ...
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    No, that's the current unibody generation. The previous generation required a pair of putty knives to pop the top off which itself was a pain and then substantial disassembly beyond that to get to ...

    Apple is the farthest thing from a monopoly. Every company does. To not do so is stupid.
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    They added new features so the iPad mini 3 gets a new name, and they kept the price the same for the base model and less expensive for the others, while the previous Retina iPad mini is now as ...

    That says "not user accessible", which may mean soldered or it may mean really hard to get at, like the previous generation Mac mini, which was also considered not user accessible.
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    Such a poor and horrible experience that users gave the iPad mini 2 a 100% satisfaction score last year (ChangeWave) and then Apple went and added the most requested feature, TouchID. Unforgivable.
  • Replied in Maximise RAM
    It's $184 for 16 gig from Crucial , so $200 from Apple is very reasonable, especially considering that the computer is ready to go out of the box and everything is guaranteed by Apple rather than ...
  • Photoshop does not use Java. For some reason, Apple thinks the installer does (which it doesn't), but if it's already installed, that should not be an issue.
  • They aren't the same. Apple's trackpad is entirely their own design, a multi-touch glass trackpad, which also uses their own driver. The trackpads you find in Windows laptops are off the shelf ...
  • Replied in Yes (nt)
    Stop over-compicating things. Pick Reinstall Mac OS X and choose the new drive, then migrate from your old drive when it asks. Do not do what the above picture says. The migration will take a ...
