Re: iPad Mini

said by Octavean:

I’d also like to be able to dock an iPad with a Mac Mini and use the iPad as a display for the mini.

Fully aware that its likely to never happen I was only referring to what I would like to see. I’ve seen concept devices they may have come to market doing something similar with Windows and Android so it technically already been done.

For what its worth Air Display always seemed a little sketchy to me.

Apple's done a dock before, too. In 1992 for the PowerBook Duo line. I really don't see them doing it again. None of the previous dock-type devices have caught on, and I don't think they will in the future. Just my opinion though.

Sketchy in what way? It worked well when I tried it out about a year ago. Some lag, but that's to be expected over Wifi.

I was referring to the Lenovo Ideapad U1 Hybrid Tablet

»www.engadget.com/2010/01/05/leno···essions/

I don’t think they ever went to market with it though. Excellent idea IMO and I don’t recall seeing anything like this concept.

That’s what I was suggestion by “sketchy”. I should have just said laggy.

I've seen some nice concepts for windows 8. Not 2 different OS but that seems more cumbersome than having metro and desktop for windows.

HP Envy 2 looks like something you might want to look at. But i've seen all OEMs, sony samsung asus have their own hybrids.

Asus has a Transformer All-In-One Android and Windows 8 hybrid 18.4-inch desktop / tablet:

»www.engadget.com/2012/06/04/asus···mer-aio/

Great concept design IMO, not necessarily practical due to the size of the tablet though. Not totally unmanageable considering there are 17” laptops,….just no 18.4” tablets,……

(youtube clip)

Yeah, the concepts only work if the tablet is under 13". I'm personally going to go for either the lenovo »www.engadget.com/2012/10/09/leno···nounced/ or the asus.

I like the dell concepts but i'm not sure i trust dell hardware.

450 Euros is 580 USD give or take the current exchange rate. A 16GB iPod Touch is $300, while a full size iPad is $500. Even if Apple made the pricing equivalent (450E = $450), that's still makes the full size iPad only $50 more, at which point I say "what's the point of that"?

That's not really how they do the pricing anyways in comparison to the Euro (Atleast I hope not. Please don't be so expensive). Also, the ipod touch doesn't come in 16gb flavor.

ipod touch 5th gen 32gb = $299

The prices in the chart may be euro but that's how it'll be in USD. So we're looking at this right now

ipad mini 8gb: $250
ipod touch 32gb: $300
ipad mini 16gb: $350
ipad 2 16gb: $400
ipad 16gb: $500

A 16gb ipad mini for $350 wouldn't be bad if it was the same or hopefully better than the ipad 2. Hope it's really $300 for 16gb but I doubt it now.

Where do you see on the chart that the Mini 16GB is $350? The cheapest one on the chart is $450.

It's the 3rd row... can you not see? O.o

370 - 1629642 - Apple ipad mini wi-fi 16gb / 349,00

If you're already considering conversation rate, don't.

Ah, I must have missed that, was lumping it together with the cellular versions.
