The only way "around" this is to max. out the RAM when purchasing new and looking for maxed out units when buying used. The down side is that what Apple defines as maximum and what the board can...

Of course you can be (more) productive with a keyboard involved, but I'm talking about a plain iPad. I considered exactly that before purchasing my MBA. I looked at various keyboard cases considering...

I'd call this their ability to sustain those profit margins. Why is this? Great products that people are willing to pay a premium for. You can't will that level of profitability into existence, just...

I'm glad to hear that your friend found a solution that works for her. She needed mobility and power and she found it in the Surface, great. But does that means everyone has the same need?

Possibly. But that would've meant a MagSafe and a USB-C port and in this case, space is at a premium - ultraportable. It's just a different class of computer, as is the iPad...no MagSafe there...
