If you thought Apple was finished when they announced their new iPhone 5 last month, then you’d be wrong because they just wrapped up one of their biggest product announcements yet. First Apple unveiled a thinner retina 13-inch display MacBook Pro laptop (starts at $1,699), then they introduced their new 80% thinner iMac ($1,299 for 21.5in/$1,799 for 27in), and they topped off all these big announcements with the 4th Generation iPad (starts at $499) with a new A6X chip, and a brand new iPad Mini. Starting at $329, the iPad Mini is 7.9 inches diagonally and 23% thinner than the 9.7 inch 4th Generation iPad. With all these new products from Apple, what are you buying?
In 2 years Apple’s iPad has redefined a market category becoming the most successful tablet computer in history.

It also has 4G LTE, voice dictation, and a new $4.99 iPhoto app. The 3rd Generation iPad will be available on March 16th in black and white: wifi only (16GB $499, 32GB $599, 64GB $699) and 4G LTE (16GB $629, 32GB $729, 64GB $829).

Software additions include FaceTime for video chat, PhotoBooth, iMovie and GarageBand. The iPad 2 is set for a March 11th release date, and is priced at ($499-$699) for wifi only and ($629-$829) for wifi + 3G in silver/black and sliver/white.

Seeing that Apple’s iPad is the hot gadget of the year, Chanel wasn’t going to sit by and let their competitors get a leg up in the luxury case market. In addition, making leather goods is one of the things that Chanel does best, so it was probably no hassle for them as they incorporated their quilted black leather and CC logo emblem into a lust-worthy iPad carrying case. Priced nearly double the most expensive iPad, the Chanel case will set you back ($1,555), but I’m sure you were expecting that.
