Apple iPad Air review

 

A clear winner in the large tablet market, and perhaps the best consumer-based tablet ever made

Stunningly thin and light ; Excellent performance ; Great battery life

Increased price ; Speakers easily muffled ; Reflective screen

If you already own a fourth generation iPad the iPad Air certainly isn't an essential upgrade, but for everyone else, this is a clear winner in the large tablet market, and perhaps the best consumer-based tablet ever made.

Apple iPad Air

 

It's functionally similar to last year but faster, better designed and, simply put, the best full-size consumer tablet on the market.

More performance for comparable battery life ; Incredibly thin and light ; Better front-facing camera

Touch ID would have been great ; Expensive compared to competitors

REVIEW: iPad Air

 

Impossibly thin and light, yet more powerful than ever, the iPad Air proves that Apple hasn't lost its way in the post-Jobs era.

Tech Guide's iPad Air review

 

The iPad Air is certainly an appropriate name for Apple's latest device. Despite its amazing thinner and lighter design it still delivers a powerhouse performance.

iPad Air: 5 Seconds With Serrels

 

Mark Serrels is a gadget whisperer. He can not only produce fine words for Kotaku Australia, but he can instantly tell whether a gadget is worth its salt after 5 seconds. What are his thoughts on the new iPad Air?

iPad Air Meta-Review: So Light, So Fast, So Beautiful

 

The iPad Air is Apple's best iPad yet according to the reviews just posted. But what does that mean beyond the usual lighter, faster, everything-er that Apple typically slaps onto its latest products? The first reviews of the iPad Air have hit the...

Apple iPad Air

 

Ten hours of battery life; twice as fast as fourth-generation iPad; light and thin

Still too big for long-term one-handed use; no Touch ID
