3 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablets

Based on 6,560 owner and expert reviews, Apple has excellent ratings for its tablets. Apple also has excellent ratings specifically for its A5 processor tablet computers compared to other brands.

Fairly Large Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of tablets of a comparable age and type to the iPad (3rd gen) is 7", the largest is 11", and the average display diagonal is 8.8". With a display diagonal of 9.7 inches, the iPad (3rd gen) has a fairly large display diagonal compared to most of the other tablets of a comparable spec and age to the iPad (3rd gen).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 9.7" tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad (2nd gen).

4 Reasons Against

Not 4G

The iPad (3rd gen) is not 4G. Most of the other tablets that were released more than two years ago are also not 4G.

If you want a tablet computer that is 4G then you might also want to consider the iPad Mini, or the iPad Mini (£365.40) both from Apple which also has a higher rating.

Not 3G

Like most of the other tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to the iPad (3rd gen), the iPad (3rd gen) is not 3G.

If you want a tablet that is 3G then you might also want to consider the Apple iPad Mini which also has a higher rating.

4 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad (3rd gen)

Released Over Four Years Ago

This A5 processor tablet has been on the market for over four years.

Average Processor Frequency

At 1 gigahertz, the Apple iPad (3rd gen) has a fairly typical processor frequency compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the iPad (3rd gen).

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 1GHz processor clock speed tablets and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad (2nd gen) is also worth considering.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 32 gigabytes, the Apple iPad (3rd gen) has a relatively average internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets of a comparable spec and age to the iPad (3rd gen).

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 32GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the iPad Mini, or the iPad Mini both from Apple.

If this A5 processor tablet internal storage capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Apple iPad (3rd gen) (64GB) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Two Processor Coress

The number of processor coress on the Apple iPad (3rd gen) is two. That's average compared to the other 15 A5 processor tablet computers that have been available for a similar time to the iPad (3rd gen) that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.

There are a number of other 2 processor cores tablets currently available which you might also want to consider including the Apple iPad (2nd gen) which has better reviews.
