In this week’s show we talked about the new iPads (who’s buying?) and what advice we’d give to people on size and storage and even cellular data plans. We discussed whether the iPad lineup is getting too fragmented with all these different options and why the iPad 2 even exists any more.

We shifted gears to talk about the new MacBook Pros and whether processor speed even matters any more. We talked about the new versions of iWork and iLife and Mavericks and whether we’d recommend rapid upgrades for muggles.
