5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

This Apple tablet computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Frequency
At 1.3 gigahertz, the Apple iPad Air has a relatively standard processor frequency compared to most of the other tablets of a similar type and age to the iPad Air.
We compared this tablet to all the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablets and we think the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Average Internal Storage Capacity
At 32 gigabytes, the iPad Air has a pretty standard internal storage capacity compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the iPad Air.
If you are looking for a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Apple iPad Air[plb_2034560_price] (64GB).
+3 Other reasons
Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)
At 5 megapixels, the iPad Air has a relatively typical rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that came out around the same time as the iPad Air.
There are a number of other 5MP rear camera resolution tablets currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price].
Two Processor Coress
The iPad Air is a two processor cores tablet computer which is average compared to the other 25 A7 processor tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the iPad Air that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.
We compared all the other 2 processor cores tablets to this tablet and we think the iPad Air[pl_1737198_price], and the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_1847201_price] both from Apple which has better reviews is also worth considering.
