    I owned the 4th Gen iPad Air and debated for a while whether to upgrade or not. My older version works smoothly and is a thing of beauty. Finally, I decided to get the IPad Air M2 11. This one is much faster than the 2 generations past. The camera placement is an improvement, the .03 inch real state is negligible, the design unchanged. Its worth the upgrade. It is not a Mac Book substitute but hey it is somewhat a better alternative that its competitors. If you are in Apple ecosystem you cant ask for anything more.

    I absolutely love the new Apple 11-inch iPad Air M2 chip Wi-Fi 128GB. I bought it in the color blue, which is gorgeous. It’s the perfect size, easy on my eyes, so I don’t have to wear my reading glasses as much! It fits easily in my bag or backpack. I ordered a blue case to protect my iPad and it has a stand so I can watch or work anywhere! The graphics are outstanding and it’s easy to operate, is fast, and battery lasts a long time! I’m enjoying it tremendously!

    Great iPad. Upgraded from a 6th gen so this is a large move up. Bought on Best Buy online with pickup. Very easy, walked in and they have a special location with the iPad ready to go!

    I am really happy I got a new iPad. It’s nice to be able to see a normal clear screen instead of a cracked screen! I basically play games on mine and use it for a few other things but 98% games! I bought a paper feel screen protector that is awesome! I bought the light purple one!

    I was in the market for a new ipad as sadly my old one just wasn’t what I needed it to be anymore. Best buy staff were friendly & helpful & I even got a deal on my brand new ipad! It was quick & easy and it works like a dream.

    Overall I like the iPad Air and pencil. I’da given it a five if the power/recharge cord would have been longer than a meter, that’s a fat yard, not enough to sit comfortably with it in your lap. Another $20 out of pocket.

    I downgraded from the M2 iPad Pro 12.9 in because it was very cumbersome. I got the air because it was smaller and a lot less money than the iPad Pro m4 11 inch. Everything was great with this air until I turned it into dark mode and noticed all the light bleed. It would be okay if I couldn't see it but because it's noticeable I had to exchange it I have a photo to demonstrate what the light bleed looks like. I do expect better manufacturing for this kind of money sorry.

    I will try to make this a short story. I randomly decided that I needed a laptop. Tried two Dell products and it was just terrible. I have had APPLE products before so I knew that I could not go wrong with getting an apple product. I did not want to break the bank too much so a macbook or desktop was out of the question. I cannot really compare an ipad to an actual windows laptop as they do slightly different things but I was tired of wasting my time with windows not working for me. I went for the Ipad air 11in (purple) and wow!! I love the lightness, the color, the quality, and the speed. I highly suggest this as it does mimic a laptop to an extent.

    It’s an iPad. We have probably purchased and owned 10-15 over the years and they always last 5+ years before a child destroys it, it faults out, or the battery dies. I purchased it for my MIL as her computer died (it always dies around year 2-3) and I’m hopeful this will last longer. We also got her a keyboard and mouse and she was able to do her Facebook and games with minimal difficulty as she already owns an iPhone. Great replacement for elderly people (and kids) who have difficult with more complex equipment.

    I love everything about this iPad. The size, the speed and the ease of everything I need. I purchased the pencil and bought a screen protector that feels like paper, so it feels like I am writing on paper= amazing!!! I use it to take notes for school and found that I don't even need to use my MacBook Air anymore.
