Apple Special Event: Yiheeee!
Yeah, yeah. Just let my inner fan girl come out and start indulging on the latest from the Apple+Microsoft+Google showdown. First stop, the Apple special event, which is scheduled sometime tomorrow. Am I excited. YES. If the specs are great, I just might get me one of dem iPad minis! Buuuuuut, from what I’ve read (and I read quite a few) it seems the expected RAM is around 512 MB! 512 MB so 2009, dammit. And it will run an older processor too, so at this point, I don’t even know what to think anymore. I mean, as much as I love Apple’s hardware, its innards are just as important and I don’t want to buy an inferior tablet just because of the logo, you know?
For example, Microsoft is all set for Surface’s debut on the 26th. Despite offering their flagship tablet with a diluted Win8 OS, the Surface is made with VaporMg, a premium alloy that’s light as a feather yet super strong! It’s just as pretty as the much lauded iPad mini and with loads of other goodies (HDMI, Micro SD card slot and 3.0 USB ports), etc., I’d be crazy choose it over the mini (if predictions about the specs were to be believed). Let’s hope the tech sites I checked out got the specs wrong otherwise, this could be a deal breaker for me and I really, really wanted an iPad Mini 😦
Hay, first world problems are the best 😀
