There’s no such thing as too much storage, especially when it comes to mobile devices.
Yesterday, Apple announced a 128GB version of the fourth generation iPad with Retina display. The 128GB iPad with Wi-Fi ($799.99) and iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular ($929.99) models provide twice the storage capacity of the 64GB models. That means more room – a lot more room – for your photos, documents, projects, presentations, books, movies, TV shows, music and apps.
Connecting Point is your local iPad expert. We’ve carried the Apple iPad line since its first day of introduction (that was April 3rd, 2010, you may recall), we stock all kinds of accessories and enhancements for them, and – as with any purchase from Connecting Point – the tech support is free… and for life.
Our Medford store just took in a very nice iPad with Retina Display in trade. It’s a white, third-generation Retina display model, with 64GB memory, Wi-Fi + 4G LTE, front and back cameras, and is configured for AT&T cellular service.
Like all of our trade-ins, this iPad has been thoroughly checked out, certified, and restored to factory defaults by Connecting Point SERVICE. It comes with its original AC adapter and cable, as well as the original box. Best of all, it is covered under its original AppleCare warranty through April 12, 2013. Last year, this model sold new for $829; we’re offering it now for a very tempting $550. Sorry, one only at this price.
ASUS‘ critically lauded seven-inch tablet is available for sale, right now, at our Medford store. This rare beauty, the world’s first Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet, boasts a quad-core processor, advanced multimedia capabilities, 9.5 hours battery life, and a spectacular 7-inch (diagonal), 1280 x 800-pixel IPS screen, covered by Corning FitGlass for improved color clarity and scratch resistance. And with a 178-degree wide-viewing angle, you won’t have to squint to see what’s going on.

iPad mini: The full-blown iPad that fits in one hand.
We once thought them to be a mythical creature, akin to the unicorn or the jackalope, but we’re now True Believers: the iPad mini is real.
And we even have some available for sale. Specifically, our Medford store has the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB Wi-Fi models (only in black, and you may recall the LTE – AKA 4G – models won’t begin shipping until later this month).
Our Bend store has, at the time of this post, eight of the 32GB Wi-Fi models on hand — four in white, and four in black.
The iPad mini has been wildly popular and crazy-difficult to keep in stock. If you have holiday gifting plans built around one, you might want to act now. These are not going to be around for long.
UPDATE MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12: Our Bend location is down to two 32GB Wi-Fi models (both white). But our Medford location has all Wi-Fi models and colors in stock, with the exception of 16GB white.

It looks like the pundits and the rumor sites got it mostly right.
Yesterday, Apple announced a Shrinky Dinked addition to their tablet family, the iPad mini (7.9-inch 1024 x 768 display versus the original’s 9.7-inch one, making for a pencil-thin form factor you can hold in one hand).
Apple also announced a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, this time with a 2560 x 1600 Retina display. And they previewed a Kate Moss-thin revamp of the iMac (say goodbye to built-in SuperDrive, and hello to faster Intel Core quad-core processors, Thunderbolt, and an innovative hybrid storage system Apple calls Fusion Drive).
