2 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

On average Apple A4 processor tablets have excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all tablets built by Apple.

Very High Battery Capacity

Tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the iPad have battery capacities of between 32mAh and 25,000mAh, and the average battery capacity is 5,100mAh. The Apple iPad has a very high battery capacity (25,000 milliamperes * hour) compared to most of the other tablets that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Like most of the other tablet computers of this type and age, the Apple iPad is not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other tablet computers of a comparable spec and age to the iPad, the Apple iPad is not 4G compatible.

Chart Edit

Only 2.1 Bluetooth Version

The Apple iPad supports a 2.1 Bluetooth version which is newer than the 4 Bluetooth version supported by most tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as it. Comparable spec tablets that have been available for more than two years Bluetooth versions range from 2 (worst) to 4.1 (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The processor clock speeds of tablet computers of this spec and age range from 1GHz to 2.7GHz. The Apple iPad has a very slow processor clock speed (only 1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 1GHz processor clock speed tablet computers and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad[plb_346892_price] is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad

Released Over Six Years Ago

It was over six years ago when this Apple tablet was released.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

The Apple iPad has a pretty typical internal storage capacity (16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other tablets of this spec and age.

There are a number of alternative 16GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad[plb_346892_price].

If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the DELL Venue 11 Pro[plb_2289023_price] (32GB).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Screen Size

The Apple iPad has a relatively standard screen size (9.7 inches) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that are a similar age to the iPad.

We compared all the other 9.7" tablets to this tablet and we think the Apple iPad[plb_346892_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger screen size then you might want to consider the Google Nexus 10[plb_1910288_price] (10"), or the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10[plb_2341887_price] (10.1") which also has a higher rating.
