This new "iPad" isn't going to save Apple given what we've seen from the iPhone5 in terms of build quality and iOS6. And something tells me they are still going to overcharge just because it's an Apple product.

Just my 2 cents on it.

The ONE good thing about Apple putting out tablets is that other manufacturers compete & then you get to buy very inexpensive Google & ASUS tablets. HOORAY FOR OVERPRICED TABLETS!

How do you figure they are overpriced? How much is your CELL-PHONE off contract?

Miniaturization costs money. What is an "ultrabook"? Its a really thin notebook that costs a shitload of money. The $1000 ACER Ultrabook is no better than their typical $400 model, other than its half as thick and half the weight.

In the real world, the best sellers for Windows Notebooks are in the $350~450 price-range, doesn't matter the brand. Only the Apple brand is able to sell a $1000 bottom end model. Have you ever priced a notebook battery? They are all about $100 to replace.

A 10~11" tablet going for $400 is a fair price. You have a large battery, a display, memory, a CPU, Wifi radio, etc... and they need to make a profit.

Why do you think its also laughable that anyone thinks the PC market is going to go ape-shit over the $1000~1400 x86 Win8 tablets?

You will know if the rumours are true because some Foxconn workers would have jumped. I sh*t you not! It will happen. Or a riot or something...
