The Exterior

The exterior has also changed in its thinness.  The thickness has now been shrunk by the shrink experts of Apple to a mere 1.75 millimeters.  The Apple iPad has never become this thin before and were all excited!  The bezel around the edge of this new iPad air is also 43% smaller then the previous models.

The batteries performance has also been improved to last up to 10 hours.  This obviously depends on your type of usage, but it’s an impressive statement nonetheless.  We expect reviews to hit the web concerning the real-life battery life.  However in the past, the Apple iPad product lineup has never disappointed when it comes to increased and excellent battery life.  We all want better battery life, but we also want a thinner design.  Apple has again found a perfect balance!

iPad Air Summary

Yes, the new iPad Air is expensive, but the overall specifications indicate that the price really isn’t that bad to todays standards.  Many other tablets made by other brands actually cost similar, but with the iPad, you get Apple quality.  You also get the 1 year warranty which is better then any warranty offered by any company.  I have experienced the warranty myself and they do everything to make you happy.  Not only that, but the iPad has quality that is seen in every aspect.  Quality is worth paying for I believe.  This iPad Air isn’t an exception at all.  What do you think?
