Apple has today started offering the fourth generation iPad with 128GB storage for purchase in the Apple Online Store and in Apple retail stores. The new model is available in both black and white and in Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi+Cellular options. The price for the Wi-Fi only model is $799 and the cellular model is $929. Currently, the online Apple Store is listing the new version as being available to ship in 1-3 business days.
It is difficult to predict how popular the 128 GB iPad will be, having launched sometime after the initial launch of both the third and fourth generation iPads, albeit with more storage. The top end version of the iPad 128GB with cellular is $929 which approaches the price of the 11 inch 64 GB MacBook Air, so consumers looking to purchase the entry level MacBook Air may look at the 128 GB iPad as an alternative investment.
