Last November 1, all-saint’s day, Apple released its latest upgrade on one of its hallowed devices… the iPad. iPad Air is officially the 5th edition of the gadget since its release in April 2010. Almost all reviews for the ‘Air’ have been positive.
With CMS IT being one of the top IT service providers in the planet, I think it’s only right that we right our own review of this product.
LIGHT AND THIN
It only weighs 1 pound; which was lighter than the previous generation and heavier than the iPad mini.
Just like the Mini, Air has the excellent retina display. With its 9.7-inch screen and 2048 x 1536 resolution, it can display full HD images.
The LCDs are great, as always. Apples LCDs are one of the best in the business.
It has the 64-bit A7 processor, just like the one in iPhone. This processor is too good, it performs very fast and it has a long battery life.
The starting price is a little steep, the 16GB version being $499. This is definitely higher than the opposing brands.
NO TOUCH ID
Although this is just a minor flaw, it is a consistent complaint among the other online reviews. It is not much of a big deal now but it may be in the future.
ONLY A SINGLE ACCOUNT IS ALLOWED
Much like the previous generations of iPad, only one user can access the iPad with their Apple ID and no options were made to use several accounts.
It has its own share of flaws, just like everything else. But by and large, iPad Air is most definitely a great gadget.
If we’re talking about comparisons with its competitors, it’s still the best tablet out there. iPad is the undisputed tablet champion—so to speak. It’s a fact and it won’t change anytime soon.
Not only is it better than the previous 4 iPads, it is arguably the best product upgrade that Apple has made in quite some time.
With that being said though, let’s go the “closing argument.”
SO, SHOULD YOU BUY IT?
Are you a tablet kind of guy? Then yes, we recommend that you buy this. But in terms of it being a must-have? I’m not so sure. Tablets aren’t necessarily all-day all-night devices; you’ll probably use in the morning and then some at night. And that’s it.
Basically, it always goes down to importance. Ask yourself how badly do you need an iPad and think about how well you can utilize it.
