3 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablet Computers

Apple A7 processor tablets have excellent reviews on average and across all tablet computers Apple is one of the leading brands.

A Best Selling Product

The iPad Air is one the top selling tablet computer currently on the market.

Price Has Dropped by £30.05

In the last week the price of the iPad Air has dropped by £30.05.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Like most of the other similar spec tablets that have been available for more than two years, the iPad Air is not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit

Not 4G Compatible

The iPad Air is not 4G compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other tablets of this age and spec are also not 4G compatible.

Chart Edit

Only One Processor Core

Most A7 processor tablets that are a comparable age to the iPad Air have between one and three processor cores, including the Apple iPad Air which has one processor core.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

The internal storage capacity of tablet computers of this age and type range from 8GB to 130GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 49GB. The iPad Air has a fairly small internal storage capacity (only 16 gigabytes) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the iPad Air.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablet computers and we think cheaper tablets such as the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)[plb_2144802_price] is also worth considering.

Very Heavy

The Apple iPad Air is one of the heavier tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the iPad Air (478 grams) amongst tablet computers of this age. The weights of comparable spec tablet computers that were released more than two years ago range from 330g to 480g.

The iPad Air 2 is no doubt a five-star product. However, while Apple may have improved the processor, added Touch ID and tweaked the display in the Air 2, we don't feel it's enough to justify... Read more…

Slim and light (although a little thicker and heavier than iPad Air 2)
Still comfortably fast enough for almost all apps and games
Beautifully designed and built
Will start to feel slower as time passes and more demanding apps are released
Screen feels slightly plasticky because of 'flex'
