Ha ha i like it !!

Even as big apple fan...this is a bad deal....it is good vs RRP but £100 extra for finger print scanner on iPad is pointless...I got a 64gb 4g mini 2 for £30 more a few months ago from currys...I'd wait as think prices will drop further as nobody is interested in mini 3 vs picking up mini 2 with more storage for less

The 64GB iPad Mini 2 was on sale at Curry's for the same price a few months ago.

16GB is just not big enough if you're using it anywhere near it's full potential.

If you're just going to use it for checking email and surfing the net, there are much cheaper alternatives available.

A new, latest model iPad for a hundred quid?
I'll have whatever it is this guy's on please!

I never even knew there was a 3rd ipad mini

Exactly the same specs as the ipad mini 2 anyway, except with the fingerprint scanner added.

Do people actually still buy ipads?

It may be optimistic, But I do see were he is coming from, Apple have turned into Samsung were iPads are concerned, I am totally confused with there model range, Retina,Non Retina,16gig,32gig,Mini,Min 2, Is that the old model, Is that the new model, Is that one discontinued, Is that one not discontinued, Is there an iPad 3, Is there not an iPad 3.

So you specifically clicked on the thread to make, I presume, what you thought was a clever remark. Unfortunately you failed in everything you were trying to achieve. You might find it hard to believe but some people want to read about deals on this site, unlikely you will gain a loyal following or lifelong friends with your silliness.

No. Apple make them because no one buys them.

Don't forget that classy gold colour!

You don't want the supermodels on your yacht to think you have the previous generation iPad Mini, do you?

Beware buying ipads from Currys. This fiasco is still fresh in my memory...

16GB , IOS takes up 3GB leaving just below 12GB to use. Some games for example are up to 5GB.

A couple movies from the iTunes Store and your memory is full.

Can you tell me at which point I said the word 'proper'?

can you tell me why thats relevant?
read it again and stick in 'using to full potential' instead of proper if that helps

Space isn't grey.

It is clear, with, if anything, a very very very slight blue tinge.

so you mean you made some sort of 'look at me i am so superior with my ipad knowledge' statement and didn't add anything to support it when questioned?
ok i am convinced!

Watch out, you've been collared by the "Opinion Police".

You are not allowed to have one, apparently.

This obviously assumes you're using it for games and movies. I never play games on my iPad, though I might watch the occasional movie if I'm on a flight. I mainly use it whilst out-and-about with the 4G. I do some light reading via the Kindle app, PDF annotation from files on DropBox, web browsing, and Twitter sometimes. I also listen to music which is streamed as I have an iTunes Match subscription.

16gb does me just fine.

Moral of the story: each usage case is different. Never consider your own usage patterns as those of the 'average user', as invariably you will be making incorrect assertions and/or assumptions about the usage patterns of others.

yes he can but that doesn't make it relevant
if it does stop people posting unfounded opinions as fact without bothering to back up then... great!

I ordered the iPad mini 2 for my second cousin yesterday from amazon for £216.99. i oppose getting a 16gb model because of how little storage is available, great if you you are just streaming videos, iMessage & youtube.

I agree with Brilly actually. I understood what he meant by proper, we all did. Just spinning words to wriggle out of him asking Ian182 to put some meat on the bone on his glib two liner.

But the reason I agree more, is that I am using a 16Gig iPad. I presume as I can see the games I am playing that counts as using it properly? (or "to its full potential" )
I stream music, surf the web and watch youtube.
Games > I have a couple of 1Gig sized games like Vain Glory, but then I have about 2 dozen more including but not limited to:
Plunder Pirates, Clash of Clans, Kings Road, Star Wars Commandor, Dino Crisis, Secon Earth (actually lemme get my pad, brb) : ok, so.. Boom Beach, Call of Duty Heroes, Battle Heroes, Heroes O&C, Gang Nations, Drop Assualt
Solstice, Samurai Seige, ThisMeansWar, Castle Clash, Kingdom, Marvel Champions Warfire and WWR

So no, you can't game or us it properly at all

Update: I also have FTL and Papers please. I have 0.9 Gig free, used 11.1. So Ian is right on 12 Gig being usable.
Apart from the built in apps, I have 26 installed. Including 800M of OneNote notes. And a 500M iOS update pending that is taking that space. I hope this helps someone way up whether 16Gig is enough for them.
