That's a ridiculous amount of ram for a consumption device, it's not a computer. I've got a 32gb Air with stacks of apps, over 1500 photos, hundreds of songs and I've still got about 4gb left.

64gb maybe, 128 overkill.
It's storage, not ram. And some people have thousands of songs, not hundreds (I have over 10,000 on my Mac).

I wish people would stop caring about other people interests and needs and just worry about what's right for them.

This.

I've never understood the whole "if I don't need it, nobody does" mentality. I personally could easily fill 128GB with music.

You can spend whatever you like, I know I do, doesn't alter the fact that you gave the wrong impression or didn't realise what you were saying. Anyway enjoy your music.:cool:
"As of 2014, most SSDs use NAND-based flash memory, which retains data without power. For applications requiring fast access, but not necessarily data persistence after power loss, SSDs may be constructed from random-access memory (RAM). Such devices may employ separate power sources, such as batteries, to maintain data after power loss.[5]" You learn something new everyday.
Your simultaneous arrogance and ignorance is comical.

Also, storage is referred to as ram a lot, as the difference is not that great.

This is the first time I have ever heard storage referred to as RAM. I must be the only one though judging by your comment. To me the difference between RAM and storage is major.

This is what you said.

"That $499 128gb iPad Mini 2 deal is a no brainer for anyone that wants a mini."
That's implying that anyone buying a Mini should buy the 128gb model, which is ridiculous, as most people would never use even half of that. For a lot of people even 16gb is ample, that's why Apple stills sells them like that.

You might have 10,000 songs on your Mac, but why would you need that many on your iPad. I don't download all my music from my PCs to my iPad, I just cherry pick the ones I'm going to use the most.

Had you said, That $499 128gb iPad Mini is a no brainer for anyone who has thousands of songs, thousands of photos and uses it to download movies, you would have been correct, but you didn't say that.
Of course I meant for anyone that needs that amount of storage. I thought that goes without saying. I've actually made the argument multiple times that it's OK that Apple has a 16gb version because that's more than enough for many people.

And yes, it would be nice for me to carry all those songs on my iPad. Worry about you, I'll spend the extra bucks to accommodate myself.

You call me arrogant and you call yourself Theheadguy, sweet.
It's how you speak to people, not what your moniker is. Your mother should have taught you that.
