    Great portable component, not a laptop replacement

    Posted .

    The battle is ongoing. First it was the Galaxy product and now the battle ensues between Microsoft's Surface and the iPad. What I like about it: This iteration offers speed, portability, crisp screen resolution, great sound. The edge goes to Apple with its extensive iTunes and App Store. It's about the apps. Seriously, what good is a tablet if you have nothing to do with it. There are so many powerful apps available exclusively to iPad that make it worth the investment. No other brand comes close. There is as of yet, no viable iPad killer. Why this model? For me, as one who has a laptop and desktop, this 16gb is the perfect size for me. I'm not storing any videos as I stream most of my videos from Comcast Xfinity On Demand (there's an app for that) and Amazon Prime (there's an app for that). There is also an app for Netflix and Hulu streaming. Moving on to music, iTunes allows you to listen to your music in the iTunes cloud without storing the music and taking up valuable storage space on your device. As a student, I downloaded productivity apps, education apps, magazines, books, games, word processing apps, spreadsheet apps, presentation apps. Pages, Keynote, and Numbers can read and be saved as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel and they are available free with the device. If you save documents in iCloud, then you don't waste storage space on documents. While 16gb can fill up fast, if you're using this to replace your laptop, you may get discouraged at the limited memory size. That being said, the memory goes far. This model has less memory per dollar than its counterparts, but unless you're using it to download and store lots of video and music, this should not be a problem. I maxed out every slot with apps and still had room to spare. Honestly, I don't use half of the apps that I download regularly, so if I need space I can remove apps temporarily for space and redownload when ready. Who would need more space? The user who plans to use iPhoto in a high capacity RAW images. If you're planning on saving large amounts of video, photos, spreadsheets exclusively to the iPad, then you definitely need more storage. What I love about iCloud is that you don't have to download your video, photos, spreadsheets to the device to be able to work on them, and you can remove items from the device without permanent deletion. At one point, I would insist upon the 32 or 64 but with the iCloud technology it is no longer a pressing issue. Siri, the voice-activated personal assistant is also included. Siri has proven more useful than times past. I like the ability to speak to my iPad and have reminders set, music or video played, or applications opened. The biggest competition will be the iPad mini with Retina display, but size is personal preference.

    Light, fast and beautiful. Is it for you?

    Posted .

    The new iPad Air is Apple's latest, slimmest, lightest release of their hand-held computer. Oddly enough, it's so beautifully easy to use, it's almost doesn't feel like a computer at all. A word of warning - this review is written for people who've never owned an iPad before - and are wondering what all the fuss is about. If you're thinking of upgrading skip down to the "What's great about the Air" section below, or just buy it - it's amazing. Just what's all the fuss about? -------------------------------------- I used to own a laptop for work, and (very occasionally), it'd sit on my lap on the sofa, and I'd use it for pleasure (eMail, watching films or playing the odd game). Then I bought my first iPad, and the laptop became redundant, a boring "work device". Hard to explain, but the fact the iPad is so small and light, and you navigate around with your finger by pointing and gently swiping the screen makes the whole experience a lot easier - a lot more fun. Even my most "luddite" of friends have been won over. It's incredibly simple and easy to use (it only has one main button), and everyone have taken to without problems. It's size and shape also support using it like a book (literally to read a book or web page), but you can also watch TV and films. Personally I'm also paranoid about my password getting "hacked", and someone running up a huge Amazon bill or buying stuff with my credit card on eBay. Well one of the benefits of the iPad (and iPhone) is it's "almost impossible" to get a virus - one of the most common ways to get hacked. This doesn't mean you shouldn't use strong passwords, (both Sony and Adobe got hacked), but it's reassuring to leave the Windows world behind. Finally, I love the way these devices (iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Apple Mac), increasingly work together. The fact you can start a Pages document on your Mac and edit it on your iPad, or take photos on the iPhone, and in seconds see them on the iPad or Mac and display them on the Apple TV. The thing is, "it just works". What would you use if for?

    The Best iPad

    Posted .

    This was my third tablet purchase in the past month. I started with a Nexus 7, which was really an excellent tablet but as I was tied into the Apple ecosystem with an iPhone and Apple TV, I found myself missing the connectivity I would have with an Apple product. I returned the Nexus 7 and went with the iPad mini (non-retina) since I liked the smaller form factor. I thought the lower resolution display would not be an issue, but it was. It was difficult to read text and pictures were not as crisp as I came to expect with the Nexus 7 as well as my iPhone 5. I returned the mini and purchased the iPad Air on the first day it was available. I have only had it for two days, but this is clearly the best tablet for me. It is not much heavier than the smaller tablets and the larger display is great for websites and games. I have no problem holding it in one hand, though the mini may be better for people smaller hands or if you want to stick it in a coat pocket or purse. The cost was obviously significantly more than the other tablets I tried, but I feel it is worth it. The Air is fast, light, works without a hitch, and has a crisp, beautiful display. I imagine the new Retina Mini will look great as well, but I didn't want to wait another three weeks for it! The Air does everything I need and does it well.

    Awesome tablet

    Posted .

    This tablet is amazing. I traded in my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for this. I loved the note and all that it could do, but after getting this, I don't even know why I didn't buy an IPad in the first place. Everything, and I mean everything, just works flawlessly on it. It is super fast especially surfing the web, the screen is excellent, the apps for the tablet are just awesome. It is nice and light so holding it never gets tiring. The sound is great, the battery life is really really good. I have been using it heavily for 2 days now watching videos and Netflix, surfing the web, emails, playing games. I haven't charged it yet . It was at 93% when I got it and it is at 24% as I type this. I really recommend this to anyone who wants a first Ike tablet to people looking to upgrade their existing one. If you really love apple products, you won't be disappointed in this, and if you are an android fan looking to switch, I can tell you from experience, everything just works so much better.

    Great Tablet!

    Posted .

    I bought this tablet for my wife who is not that great with tech products. She found it easy to use and a great improvement over her ipad 2. It is lighter, has a better screen resolution and is much faster. It is the only tablet to consider for people that don't understand Android and want the comfort of Apple.

    Great for anyone in the tablet market, easy to setup and go. Battery life is excellent especially compared to the galaxy tab 3 i returned to purchase this iPad air. Super fast when opening apps or tasking between multiple apps. Great picture/video quality even though it isn't specifically classified as a "1080p" display.

    1st I Pad

    |
    Posted .

    Let me start off by saying that this is my first ever I Pad. I have seen them, but never actually used one of them before. I bought the IPad Air after reading the reviews online and was hoping it would live up to hype since I am predominately an Android user. Well let me tell you that if you are looking for a tablet look no further. This tablet is used both for work and pleasure. It works well for both. It plays movies beautifully with crisp color and decent sound. It also has the retina display so reading on it in any light is no problem. I use it just about every day and feel that it is definitely worth the money.

    Light and advanced

    Posted .

    The improvements are great, overall a wonderful product. However, 16GB may not cut it anymore. As someone that keeps barely anything on my iPad (no music or movies), the mandatory apps take up more room than ever. Nearly 1GB is taken with iMovie; it works well, but if you're not going to use it, it takes up a lot of space. Add on a a few larger apps and your out of room for even a small amount of music or photos; not to mention any movies or videos saved to the device. The wi-if connectivity is better than ever and the range is great; never a problem even at ranges I've never been able to connect before. Processing power is there too, but that's no surprise. If you've never used an iPad, it's still very easy to learn. If you own one, it's more of the same with good improvements to the model.

    Best one yet

    Posted .

    Having traded up from the original iPad, I was massively impressed with the improvements in this newer model. Totally worth the cost and I use it everyday for both business and personal tasks. Definitely recommend iOS over Android. I have a Nexus tablet as well and never use it because its difficult to operate.

    Love the new iPad Air

    |
    Posted .

    I upgraded to the iPad Air from the 3rd generation iPad. I traded in my iPad, got a $200.00 gift card, and used it towards the new purchase. If I did a trade-in at Apple they would have given me a lower trade-in value. I shop at Best Buy for the reward points. :) I am very happy with the purchase, the only thing I find hard to find is the case covers for the new iPad Air. Best Buy has some pretty good ones, but I will have to wait. I love how it is lighter then the 3rd generation and it is a little bit smaller which is a plus. Thank you Best Buy

    Amazing improvement on a great product

    |
    Posted .

    Apple has done some impressive things in the days since the iPod first came out. With the advent of the iPhone and the iOS operating system, things changed. Then came the iPad. A revolutionary new device, a vision from Jobs himself. The third and fourth iterations of the iPad were major improvements, with the Retina display, and an upgraded processor with each subsequent release. The fifth iteration, this new iPad Air, is the biggest improvement yet. While the Retina Display hasn't really changed in the three generations it's existed, it does of course continue to be a sharp, beautiful, high quality display. The hardware is a welcome improvement. Unfortunately, the memory has not been upgraded yet, but it's negligible. The processor has been upgraded to the new A7 processor, the first mobile processor built on 64-bit architecture, and the new M7 co-processor, for motion. The iPhone 5S was probably the main intent for this feature, but the motion processor still allows for some interesting innovation too come. Beyond that, I'm not exactly sure what else it's for at this point, but it's impressive nonetheless. The A7 on the other-hand, you really can feel and see the difference on many tasks. Unfortunately, iOS 7.1 is still a little buggy, and this potentially takes away some of the awesomeness you might otherwise see in the new processor, but that will improve with later iterations of iOS 7. Overall, it's still great software, and by far the greatest looking mobile operating system there it. Not clunky at all like android or windows, but fluid, dynamic, with depth. It's beautiful. Overall, the iPad Air is a fantastic piece of technology. The software is great despite its flaws, and it's gorgeous, the device itself is powerful and fast. The body is now tanner and lighter than any previous model, and with a thinner bezel, while keeping the same great screen size. The App Store is the largest of any mobile system. And since Apple requires a $99/year developer license to release apps in the App Store, the vast majority of iOS apps are made by people who are dedicated and care about what they create. They follow quality design standards and are well-built. A tablet is a vastly more intimate experience than a computer. The iPad, probably more so than any. If you want a fast, efficient, beautiful, tablet experience, this is for you. Whether you want it for content consumption, like mail, browsing the web, Facebook, YouTube, Netflix, etc, or for content creation such as writing, school, or business, I highly recommend this device. I hardly use my laptop. Well, I do use it, but this is my daily driver now. The iPad began my Apple conversion, after spending 25 years - basically my whole life - as a PC guy.

    So happy, worth every cent!!!!

    Posted .

    The Apple IPad Air blows all of the tablets out of the water. I have slowly been an android and PC user but this iPad is simply amazing. Everything works so easy and fast. The applications are great and the iPad has good multi tasking features. I have been using it for over a day straight and haven't even had to charge it so the battery is excellent. I enjoyed using FaceTime, the camera and Skype. Each were used with ease and great clarity. I am so glad I chose this over the surface 2, that product did not impress me at all. If you are an apple fan already obviously you'll love this and if you are like me and had no other tablets you'll definitely be enjoying this. I am writing the review from the iPad now and the keyboard is great, it's thin, it's light, has no lag and is just overall a very smart electronic device. I am so happy with this!!!!!!

    Good deal, fine for most people needs

    I'm a Mac consultant by trade. I bought this for a client. She had a stroke and the full size iPad makes a great communication device via FaceTime with her daughter. I simplified the home screen by moving extraneous apps, making the FaceTime app more prominent. It really is fantastic technology for communicating with loved ones as you can see their faces and assess their condition whereas a caregiver may not detect the subtle facial clues that a family member will notice. We chose the full width, full size iPad as it is easier to handle with reduced hand dexterity than iPad Mini. I didn't see any value in spending more money for the iPad Air 2 for her needs. It also makes a great web reader. Most people aren't aware of the "reader view available" when browsing the web in Safari. Tap the horizontal lines to the left of the address bar, and Safari will strip out all the ads and superfluous info, enlarge the text and make things much easier to read. Works with an iPhone, too.

    The Best iPad ever

    Posted .

    I had Apple iPad 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition before this device. Comparing to them this iPad Air is much better. I mostly use it for education (books). What is great about textbook reading that all heavy PDF textbooks iPad Air opens very fast. I can switch between pages, search text in book instantly. On ipad searching part of text in book works much better than on PC. Moreover iBooks automatically know the edges of text. And if you double tap on text text's width would fill edges of screen. Add to this 4:3 screen wich close to original books format and you will get perfect device to read heavy PDF files. It also works perfect with CHM books. In addition you can download full Office apps for iPad Air for free from AppStore. Games works perfect. Music sound perfect. It will not get as hot as Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition while playing. I remember that even during browsing Samsung was warm. Don't get me wrong, Samsung has it's own advantages. But for book reading it is not perfect device. Overall I strongly recommend this device.

    I purchased the Ipad Air to get into tablet computing and work with my Iphone.as well as my wife's. The Ipad is very fast, the graphics are wonderful, and is extremely lightweight. I have found that Safari doesn't work with some web sites so I downloaded Chrome which works fine. I do think IOS 7 has some issues that will be resolved in future releases. Other than that I am very satisfied with the device.

    Fastests, most user friendly tablet on the market

    |
    Posted .

    The newest addition to the iPad family continues on a strong tradition of quality from Apple on the iPad line. I was a bit disappointed when Apple released the iPad 3 and then immediately released the 4th gen right after, but they seem to have done this for a purpose and have gotten themselves back on track since. The iPad Air or 5th gen iPad is a remarkable device. It is significantly faster at loading the bigger game apps then my 4th gen and is soooooo much lighter. This iPad is easy to hold in the air for long periods without causing any strain to the user. The interface was significantly changed via the OS7 update for everyone just prior to the release of the iPad Air; however it is easy to tell that OS7 was made for this product. Everything works pretty much flawlessly right out of the box, and can be customized just the way you like it (even by my 84 year old grandmother!). It is not the best tablet for business (as most businesses operate on Windows OS in lieu of the Apple OS) as it does not have a USB port or a already included Microsoft Office functionality (though it can utilize apps to provide this function in a limited capacity. That being said, in my opinion tablets are meant more to be a really advanced, high tech toy than anything else and when it comes to makeing high tech toys, no one can touch Apple products. I highly recommend the iPad for anyone that wants something fun and easy to use.

    Just What I Needed!

    |
    Posted .

    I have been anti-apple for a while, as I believe Apple's products are way over priced. Over the years I have been a Droid fan, and most recently a Windows fan. As I have had multiple "gadgets", I realize Droid is a little glitchy and Windows is "GREAT" but lacking in the app area. I am a new small business owner and needed something that was portable to design, and keep track of my sales while on the go. Droid would work for this but Adobe products are more compatible with Apple plus I am learning that just about every app that is designed, ends up on the Apple platform first anyway, so brings me to i-pad air. I bought a Surface 3 thinking this would work. It didn't so I returned it and settled on the i-pad air. The air still upgrades to the latest software and does everything I need it to do. It runs Adobe apps seamlessly and also runs Square which allows me to accept credit cards on the go. Perfect work partner! I would recommend an i-pad to anyone who is trying to run a business on the go and with a slim budget. With my i-pad and my Microsoft phone, I have the best of both worlds!

    Nice Upgrade To the iPad line

    Posted .

    I just upgraded to the iPad Air from the iPad 2. I was looking for something a bit lighter, easier to hold and something with the retina display. The iPad Air has delivered. The size and weight are exactly what they should have always been. It is easy to hold with one hand and read. The thinner edges makes the device feel very different and are a great addition. The best thing about eh device is the retina display. The display looks absolutely amazing. Also, it is extremely quick. The A7 chip is very nice. Great device from Apple.

    The big disappoint for me. No finger print scanner. I have the iPad 4, biggest improvement, lighter weight. That being said, if you have the iPad 4, I would not rush, to buy this. The camera is a bit better. Sound quality about the same, maybe even a little worse. Battery life, seems about the same, as iPad 4. Also, it does not have,slow motion on camera recording, like the iPhone 5s. The accessories, when you slide up, to use these did not include flashlight function, or calculator? I know it can be added, with software update, but why not have it, like the iPhone 5s? Not included is the earbuds? Fit and finish, is very nice,as with most all, Apple products. I know it is not a phone, but why not have a phone dialer? If you have cellular function you paid extra for? Can you imagine a phone wit retina display this size. I know,sure you can do FaceTime!

    Simply Excellent

    Posted .

    I purchased an iPad Air 16GB white on Nov. 1. I upgraded from an iPad 4 mainly because of the lighter weight. What I love about the iPad Air (and all Apple products for that matter) is that they just work. I've never experienced lag or software crashes with iOS 7 on my other Apple products so I'm certain I won't experience any on the iPad Air. The iPad Air is a great tablet for consumers looking for a tablet that allows them to do simple things like web suffering and email, along with watching videos. It doesn't do anything extra that will slow down its performance unlike many Android tablets. After owning Android tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 I will NEVER go back to Android. Too many bugs and cheap build quality are a no-no when spending $500 for a tablet.
