    Great extremely light tablet!

    |
    Posted .

    The first thing I noticed upon picking up the iPad Air is just how light it is. I have always liked the previous generations of the iPad but really felt it was to heavy. I know that sounds crazy but when you are holding an electronic device for long periods of time, that is something to think about. I really liked the 1st generation iPad mini because of the form factor and weight. The iPad Air is really just a larger screened iPad mini as far as the form factor goes. The retina display is truly candy for the eyes when viewing videos, checking emails, or surfing the net. I previously owned a Google Nexus 10 and one of the main things that the iPad Air has over it is the incredible battery life. I have been getting multiple days use on a single charge. Another advantage is the App Store. There are so many more apps designed for the iPad than there were for the Nexus 10. Don't get me wrong, I really like the Android operating system and I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S4. I really like the widgets on my phone but I really don't miss not having them on my iPad Air. In conclusion, the iPad Air is a great tablet that is easy to use and I just can't say enough about the battery life!

    I forgot I have a laptop

    Posted .

    I wanted an ASUS tablet, but I was going on price, what some coworkers have, my prior experience with ASUS products, and my reluctance to join the legions of Apple followers. My daughter bought an iPad mini with her birthday/inheritance money and wouldn't stay off of it. Within two weeks of her purchase, she talked me into getting an iPad so that we could face time. Plus, she convinced me that as a designer, my customers would be more impressed that I was using an Apple product rather than a competitor copy. Believe it or not, that's what sealed the deal. I bought the iPad Air because it is the latest and greatest in the lineup and therefore is less likely to go out of date sooner like the iPad 2 and others will. I also liked it's thinness and narrower frame along the two long sides. Using the iPad took some getting use to, as I have only ever had Windows and Android products. My daughter had to show me many shortcuts and maneuvers. I still get frustrated with the way Apple products work sometimes and there are many things that Windows and Android does better and more intuitively. But, I have fallen in love with my iPad Air and it goes with me everywhere. When I'm away from home, I tether it to my Galaxy S4 and the internet speed from Verizon is great. There is no need to buy a costly separate data plan. And don't listen to the naysayer mobile phone salespeople trying to sell you a data plan only for your iPad. With 4GLTE you'll be surfing along just fine, although there is some buffering, but nothing near like what you get with 4G. I love the easy portability of my iPad. I have the Logitech Bluetooth keyboard case which doubles as a cover. I hardly ever charge my keyboard. The battery lasts forever. Speaking of batteries, the iPad is very good on battery power. The usual power munchers will eat up the battery life, but not that quickly. I charge my iPad every two or three days and my keyboard maybe once a week. I am writing this review on said keyboard with the iPad propped up and held in place by the magnetic strip. My android phone has a more sensitive touch screen, though. That's one of my biggest peeves with this iPad. You have to touch the screen and hold your finger in place longer than with a product like my Galaxy S4. It's annoying that Apple didn't include a more sensitive touch screen. My daughter and I went out and bought ourselves some 97 cent stylus pens from Target. They work so much better than a finger and are more accurate. BTW, on that keyboard? It's smallish for large hands. I miss keys all the time, because I am use to a full size keyboard, so I have to backspace frequently to retype, unlike on a regular size keyboard. Final words: I have forgotten that I have a laptop.

    Great tablet

    |
    Posted .

    I have owned several Apple products, and the iPad is the most distinguished among Apple's line up relative to its competition. The most compelling aspects of this tablet are the beautiful design, and the 10 hour battery life. These are the two features that made me decide to purchase another Apple product irrespective of their business practices which try to squeeze money out of their customers by not supporting devices properly after they are released. After having used this product for over a month now, I can say it is an improvement over my iPad 1. The browser now crashes on the original to the point of making it worthless. My original iPad had 256 MB of RAM which is not enough to load a lot of modern web pages without the browser crashing. That is why I had hoped the 1 GB of RAM in the iPad Air would be sufficient, and it has improved, yet I still find that the browser crashes on occasion. The scroll latency is very subtle, but noticeable to me. It doesn't really impact my usage, but it could create problems for people who game on their iPads. Putting in 2 GB of RAM (which is what I have in my Nexus 4) does not cost that much, and would improve the performance greatly. For a premium product, I expect the best, and Apple has consistently under-delivered on processing hardware which created the same problems all the way back to the iPhone 1 I purchased on launch day.

    great upgrade

    Posted .

    I upgraded from an iPad 2 to the iPad Air. Let me just tell you how much better the screen resolution is compared to the iPad 2. Crisp pictures and the blacks are nice and black. I knew when I bought it that the picture and features would be improved, but what surprised me even more was that the sound was better. I used to have issues watching movies with my friend using the iPad 2 because of sound. We were always straining to hear the audio clearly, and a couple of times had to set up small speakers. The iPad Air must have improved speakers or the volume is able to be turned up more, or both. You can also notice a huge difference in the responsiveness of the tablet. The A7 processor is quite apparent and a very big upgrade from the iPad 2. The one thing I do not like about the iPad Air is that the smart cases run a $79.99 (case, not cover, because who wants to only protect the screen?) which I find overly expensive. And Apple should really think about branching out in color choices. Apple pink is really ugly. Anyway, 10/10 on the iPad Air itself. At least, until a new and improved version comes out... which will make me want a new one!

    Awesome Tablet

    Posted .

    I've used the iPad 2, which is a great tablet, but Apple improved it. As with any Apple product, it's easy to use & reliable. This is definitely lighter & faster. The battery life has improved too. I use it alot & only need to charge it every 3 days or so. I use this for recreational only (Netflix, Facebook, Chive, etc) so I don't have the complaints others do about office software. In my opinion, this is a great tablet. I wish it was a hundred bucks cheaper, but you pay for quality. No regret's on this purchase.

    1st iPad - glad I chose the Air.

    |
    Posted .

    Borrowed a friend's Nook to see if I'd like the "e-reader/thing", I did and because I own several other Apple products, the iPad was the obvious choice. Then it just came down between the Air and the Retina Mini. Because I would primarly be using the device to read books, magazines and the WSJ, I ultimately decided that the sacrifice of a little bit of portability was small in relation to the gains in performance and more enjoyable usage in other mediums I would be getting with the Air. The only two qualms that I have with the device are that the edge of the screen is almost a perfect right angle and therefore creates almost a sharp edge when holding it AND (well this really isn't a complaint but more a heads-up to would-be buyers)..... if you travel by plane regularly, sit at the window (and keep the shade up during day flying) and plan to use the iPad, get yourself a nice smudge proof and matte finish screen protector because the glare is tremendous off of the screen without on - so tremendous that is borderline makes the device unusable.

    It's a slimmer, lighter Ipad with retina!

    |
    Posted .

    Well, I am probably one of the most anti-Apple people around but I love their iPads. I cannot get enough of Apple's tablets. I have 2 iPad 2's and just got the Air for my wife. Not much difference between the 2 and the air software wise. The OS is identical to the iPad 2. However the hardware is where this puppy shines. The air is so much faster than the 2 from a raw processing standpoint. Side by side launching the same apps and the air is ready to go while the 2 had to think a bit more, just a second or 2 but noticeable. The Retina is crisp, sharp and colorful. No jagged edges on the text. And then finally, it is light as a feather. After holding my 2 for a while I begin to notice the weight. Using the Air is like holding a book or a cell phone. I get nervous sometimes typing on it that I am going to punch my finger right through it, but it holds up. Very durable for its super slim physique. Also uses the micro charger unlike the 32 pin of previous iPads. Definitely an upgrade over the 2 but subtle upgrades. Nothing earth shattering.

    Great Tablet for Older Person

    Getting my mother-in-law acquainted with technology so that she can communicate with her grandchildren. This was a good choice because most of the kids have IPhones, so grandma can FaceTime, text and email them using her tablet. She also is able to watch TV in every room using this device.

    Great and easy use

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this iPad because my work made it a requirement. I was a bit skeptical at first with the size but it's great, easy to use, lightweight and compact. In fact I hardly ever use my computer anymore since the iPad is so comfortable! Also, my initial concern, which was typing on such a touch keyboard, turned out not to be a problem at all! I'm hooked!

    Best iPad yet

    |
    Posted .

    What can be said about the new iPad that hasn't already been said? I've owned 2 of the 3 previous models, and this iPad fixes all of the shortcomings of those previous iterations. This device is incredibly svelte: it's one of the lightest tablets I've held but doesn't even come close to feeling cheap (unlike others.) The screen size is the same as my older models, but the form factor has been reduced which means the screen occupies even more of the unit. The display is as sharp as ever, photos, images and movies look tremendous in all lights. I watch one or two movies / TV episodes a day on this thing and it looks gorgeous. The 64-bit CPU has some noticeable speed increases, but it won't necessarily blow your socks off. I assume that speed gains will grow as more apps take advantage of the 64-bit architecture available to them. I bought a matching Apple case for it that fits like a glove and looks pretty sharp too. All in all, this is the best iPad yet! Highly recommend it!!

    Best Tablet for Entertainment

    |
    Posted .

    The tablet is perfect for all entertainment and general internet surfing purposes. The size and portability make it ideal for reading books, watching internet streams and internet related business such as paying bills. I own 3 other tablets and this by far is best tablet that has replaced my others. The weight and portability rival the mini version of this tablet. I had another 10 in tablet for internet movie watching and that too has been put in retirement because of this tablet. Overall for entertainment and web browsing, this tablet replaces the need to have a tablet for that specific function I could not quite get out of 1 tablet. As all other tablets this tablet does not quite replace the need for a personal computer even with all attached peripherals. But it comes close. The manufacturer finally got it right. The screen size that is required to truly enjoy a streaming movie and the weight and size that make the mini version a bit easier to handle.

    Best gift EVER!!

    |
    Posted .

    My husband surprised me with the new iPad Air for Christmas this year. I always wanted an iPad, but there always seemed to be something else that took priority. So he was a great Santa and made my wish come true. I thought it would be fun just for games - but reading books on it is phenomenal! I've already told him next year I want iTunes gift cards so I can download more books. We're also thinking of getting iPad Minis for the kids - so they stop asking for my iPad! If you're thinking of getting one - don't delay. You won't regret the purchase!! (Review written on my iPad while relaxing on the couch - ain't technology grand?!)

    Posted .

    I love this tablet! It is so convenient and fast! Once I figured out navigation, I was off and running... it is thinner and lighter than most and I have the smaller processor and you would never know the difference, it is so fast! If you are in the market for a tablet, this is the one you want!

    Perfect gift for a 'special needs' relative

    |
    Posted .

    Although I have purchased four previous iPads for myself and my family, and just many iPhones, this purchase was for a member of our family who is "special needs," and was going through a serious health crisis and was in an ICU for weeks. My wife and I saw the iPad as an easy to use tool to provide this loved one comfort, entertainment and mental stimulation. Its ease of use and our ability to personalize it to his needs were key. We loaded it with his favorite movies; queued up some favorite YouTube topics like the Space Shuttle launches; and installed games he could play with us, with nurses or by himself. HE LEARNED HOW TO DO EVERYTHING. IT RESTORED HIS CONFIDENCE, and I believe it helped him heal. He's fine now, back at home, and that iPad never leaves his side. It was the perfect gift.

    Apple has created the most revolutionized instrument that is capable of replacing 90% of our computer needs. The iPad is useful not only for basic functions like emailing, social media and listening to music and watching movies, it is also used for many great Busniess needs such as creating and editing documents, presentations, and excel spreadsheets.

    Posted .

    I am very pleased with this new version of the iPad, the iPad air is far the best iPad ever, it's faster, lighter, and smaller, but losing the screen size, the bevel seems t be shorter, which is a great idea. I'm on my iPad when I wake till I go to bed, I use it. Ore than my laptop.

    Love my iPad!

    Posted .

    I used to have an android phone and really liked it so when I needed a tablet it made sense to get an Android. After all, it was ALOT less expensive. It only took a few hours of trying (and failing) to set up/sync my calendar to realize I had made a huge mistake. Best Buy exchanged it for me without any hassle. The beat part -- I had my calendar set up in about 2 minutes. The bottom line, the ease of use right out of the box makes the iPad well worth the price. My only negative comment: wish there was a USB port but I knew that going in.
