Apple makes 128GB iPad with Retina Display official


We've heard plenty of rumors about Apple's intentions to start offering a higher capacity fourth-generation iPad, but now the new gadget is official: You can snag a 128GB iPad with Retina Display beginning on Feb. 5.

The Wi-Fi-only version of the higher capacity iPad will cost $799 while the LTE-capable version will go for $929. As usual, you'll be able to choose a white or black model.

It's worth pointing out that, at $929, the LTE-capable 128GB iPad costs you nearly as much a base MacBook Air model. Alternatively, you could also snag  an iPad Mini — which starts at $329 — or three for the same price. (Mind you, neither of those devices will have a high-resolution Retina Display like the fourth-generation iPad.)
