1 Reason For

Excellent Brand

Apple has excellent average reviews for its A7 processor tablet computers as well as across its entire tablet computer range.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3G

The Apple iPad Air is not 3G. Most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that came out around the same time as the iPad Air are also not 3G.

Chart Edit

Not 4G

The Apple iPad Air is not 4G, although this is within the context that most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been available for more than two years are also not 4G.

Chart Edit

Only One Processor Cores

The Apple iPad Air is a one processor cores tablet. Most of the other tablets of this spec and age have between one and three processor coress.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

The smallest internal storage capacity of A7 processor tablet computers that were released around the same time as the iPad Air is 4GB, the largest is 130GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 48GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the Apple iPad Air has a fairly small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the iPad Air.

We compared this tablet to all the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Heavy

The iPad Air is quite heavy (478 grams) compared to most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec. Across all the tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the iPad Air the weights range from 330g to 480g.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Apple released the iPad Air.

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 9.7 inches, the iPad Air has a pretty average display diagonal compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable spec and age to the iPad Air.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 9.7" tablet computers currently available including the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737198_price] which has better reviews.
