Pre-order new iPad PRO, Macbook AIR, Mac Mini

The biggest news of yesterday’s 2018 Apple event taking place in Tim Cook’s new favorite city is that *gasp* the beloved iPad Mini 4 continues to be in the line-up as an active and “latest” model 🙂

On a more serious note, Apple revealed a handful of new products, a total of over 90 SKUs (when colors, storage, etc options are factored in). The new products include a promising upgrade of the 11″ and 12.9″ iPad PROs with USB-C [good thing I stopped buying accessories at 30-PIN ;-)] with prices starting at $800 for the 11-inch model and $1000 for the 12.9-inch and go as high as $1900.

Also arriving is the highly anticipated Retina MacBook Air with prices starting at $1200 and going up to $2600. All these come with on-board SSD ranging from 128GB to 1.5TB and either 8 or 16GB of RAM.

Last but not least, the most numerous of the new products with over 50 SKUs is the new MacBook Mini with prices ranging from $800 to $4100.

So if one wants to buy one of each, at the entry-point model, that’s $2800. On the other hand, if you want to buy the flagship of each product, that’s $8600. Still less than a decent used CR darling Honda Accord 🙂

EU: Used Sony RX10 Mark IV for 1448 euro

Price aside, the Sony RX10 Mark IV mayhaps is the closest to a “do it all Paul” type of a camera with a 1″ sensor, a solid superzoom range with OIS, fast autofocus, 4K video, etc, etc, etc. But the price is quite high for this model. If you are tempted but you are fond of buying used, as of the time of writing, the German Amazon Warehouse Deals has it in USED condition for 1448 euro.
