Apple - iPad Air 2 9.7" - Tablet A8X Triple-core (3 Core) 1.50 GHz - 2 GB - iOS 8 - Space Gray

So capable, you won't want to put it down. So thin and light, you won't have to.

With iPad, we've always had a somewhat paradoxical goal: to create a device that's immensely powerful, yet so thin and light you almost forget it's there. A device that helps you do amazing things, without ever getting in your way. iPad Air 2 is all that. And then some.

Best Buy Customer Reviews

New Apple user... Posted by: from: on I went into Best Buy with the intention of not purchasing an Apple product. I'm afraid I do not have a good reason for this other than just always being comfortable with Windows based computers and gadgets. If it wasn't for a very friendly and knowledgeable sales associate I would have walked out with what I wanted BUT, it would have been the wrong choice because this product is the perfect fit and was on sale for a great price. I needed a fast processing, sharp resolution tablet to be able to show multiple presentations and take clean pictures in no time for potential and current clients. I am pleased how easy it is to navigate around and sync with my Windows based phone and laptop. To the seasoned tech user I am sure this sounds pretty basic but not everyone lives each moment of their day in a virtual world. This is more for a novice like me trying out new gadgets on their own and satisfied how easy the transition has been.

Love My New Ipad Air 2 Posted by: from: Michigan on I own the original Ipad (still going) and had the first Ipad mini. However, a year ago, the mini died and I decided not to replace it. After a year without an Ipad, I was ready for another one. I began looking six weeks ago, trying to decide which one to buy. This week, Best Buy had the mini on sale and I was torn between that and the Ipad Air 2, which was on sale elsewhere for the same price. I went into Best Buy to make my final decision and was thrilled when they price matched the competitor's ad and I was able to get the Ipad Air 2. Absolutely love it. The size is great but the speed is even better. Leaps ahead of my previous Ipad(s). I was a little hesitant about the 16GB, but having the 64 GB IPhone 6s Plus, I decided the 16 would be fine for the Ipad. I am one happy grandma with my new purchase. Love the Apple products and now know you get what you pay for and this is worth the extra money over a cheaper Android.

Best Ipad I had so far Posted by: from: Henrietta, NY on I have had the original Ipads (1, 2 and 4), then I bought a mini when it lauched. Updated to the retina mini (mini 2). Habing this mini2 for a while, decided to give it a try in a Air2, the top-of-the-line non-pro Ipad currently. I have to say I am impressed with a few points in this ipad. The screen state does make a difference, even though I try to have my equipment sizes in the smallest form sizes while keeping it functional. I see myself no longer using my mini2 in favor of the new Ipad Air2. Its also fast. A lot faster then any Ipad I had before. I never wait for any operation. Games load fast. Final comment: the screen quality is amazing. I cant tell the details, but see for youself. Use it for a while and you realize the screen quality of the Air is hundreds of years ahead compared to the mini.

Still The Best Posted by: from: on There are a lot of great tablets on the market, and if you just want something for reading books or viewing Netflix, something like the Amazon Fire would serve you well. However, Apple's iPad is still the best all-around tablet. We bought this particular iPad for my mother-in-law to replace an old netbook and first generation iPad mini. She'd loved the mini, hated the netbook, and was looking for something with a larger screen that could potentially pair with a bluetooth keyboard if need be. For the little bit of email, the large amount of card games, and the occasional word processing that she does, this has served her well. It should be noted that the iPad Air 2 is still being sold, but Apple has an identically sized iPad Pro (at 9.7") that also includes a display that is compatible with their pressure sensitive Pencil. If you don't plan on doing much drawing, the iPad Air 2 will serve all of your needs just as well as the iPad Pro.

Great Technology Posted by: from: on I bought this for my father-in-law who wants so badly to keep up with his new great granddaughter! Now he is able to take pictures, receive pictures and send text messages with great ease! Not to mention he and my mother-in-law have game apps on it to keep their minds busy/sharp! He didn't want to get a smart phone due to budget concerns so I got him this along with a router and he couldn't be happier. The picture quality and overall ease of use is awesome! He picked up on how to use it with no problem!

Best Ipad I have Ever Owned! Posted by: from: Kentucky on I am coming from an Ipad 3 32GB. Althought there was nothing wrong with the IPAD 3, it seemed to get slower and slower with every new version of the IOS operating system. I decided to Downgrade from the 32GB to the 16GB as I only use the IPAD for internet, email, weather, pay bills and a few misc apps. I still had only 12 GB used on my 32GB after 3 years. The new Ipad air 2 is much faster, response time is great! I think the 2 GB RAM also helped a lot in this new version. I also used the fingerprint sensor to lock it. I love that feature, and yes it does work and if a stranger tries it a few times it locks it out and requires a passcode before you can use the feature again. Overall I am pleased I upgraded.

OK product. Posted by: from: on I am a Microsoft/Windows person but my wife convinced me to buy an ipad to try it. She loves apple. I am impressed with how responive and fas it is. It is well engineered and there are tons of apps. However, I do not like it as much as I thought I would or nearly as much as my wife expected me to. First of all, unlike Microsoft/Windows phones and tablets, there is no "back" button and ir sucks having to figure out how to return to the previous thing you were doing. Each program and app has its own way of doing it. I can't stand it. Also, there is no memory card expansion and once you use all of your space, you're scrambling to delete stuff to make room for more. The ipad is ok, but my wife was unsuccessful in converting me to apple.

A little disappointing. Posted by: from: Madison, WI on This tablet was a little disappointing for me. I am usually a big fan of apple products...but this one fell a little flat for me. Not as snappy and responsive as other products of theirs. I know thats a combination of hardware and software. The screen is beautiful, gets very bright. The battery life is acceptable. The build quality is very nice. But the whole user experience with the hardware and software combined...just didnt do it for me. I have since upgraded to a Ipad Pro and it works much better for me!

LOVE THIS PURCHASE! Posted by: from: on I have had one IPad before, and had been wanting an upgrade ( newer version) for a while. Best Buy made my decision easier when they had their Apple products on sale. I got my Apple Air 2 at a steal! But, honestly, it's totally worth the full price. My old iPad is about 4-5 years old, and although I still like it, I have passed it down to another user. The Air 2 is so incredibly light, and has new and advanced technology, but it was a seem less switch from my older version. I absolutely love this product, and can not imagine anyone else not loving it. If you don't need all of the features of a full fledged PC, this is a no brainier. It also works great as a companion to a PC, and works so well with all of my Apple products.

Love My Ipad Posted by: from: on I don't know why I did not purchase one of these sooner. Best Buy had them on sale at a great price and I took advantage of it. I use it constantly during the day to quickly look up something on the internet, or send messages to family & friends without having to go to regular computer. So handy can use it anywhere with WiFi. I don't know how I survived without it. Love it!!
