sure you need the 64gb version? I'd say 32 is the sweet spot for the price. I wouldn't use it to store music on and you sync it so much with a computer that its easy to add/remove stuff that takes up space, but thats just my opinion. I'm thinking about a 32gb wifi

I'm betting he will love it too. I never even considered an apple product until my wife got her first ipad. She soon got the ipad2 then I went out and got an ipod and now we have iphones.

I love ios and the hardware that runs it.
On the other hand, I still won't try a computer from Apple

I'm too used to Windows now though.

I am pretty new to smart phones with less than 2 years experience so I wasn't used to having many years experience with a certain os. ios does blow away Android in stability and polish. I do wonder if a Mac is the same way against Windows...

What do you sir think about the upcoming windows 8?, I know nothing about it as I'm just a gamer at heart but I'm getting older now, so I'm going to start using my pc and the new Ipad for other things beside gaming.

It's just a shame that they're forcing Metro on the Desktop. So I'm kinda on the fence about it.

I barely use my PC since I don't game that much anymore, so I'm not sure if I upgrade. I'll get Windows 8 through Technet but there has to be a good workaround to get rid of Metro before I install it on my PCs.
Wana piece out your gaming rig then? ^_^
