GOOD GEAR GUIDE - EDITOR'S CHOICE

Expert review by: Ross Catanzariti (goodgearguide.com.au)

Apple iPad (4th Generation)

 

Apple's new iPad remains the tablet to beat, but this is a minor upgrade over its predecessor

4G capable in Australia ; Improved front-facing camera ; Quality app ecosystem

Only a minor upgrade over 3rd Gen ; Lightning accessories are expensive ; Gets warm with regular use

The 4th Generation iPad is only a minor improvement over its predecessor but still remains the tablet to beat. An upgraded A6X processor, Apple's new Lightning connector and a better front facing camera are the main differences. All in all this is an...

Apple iPad with Wi-Fi (32GB) (preview)

 

The Apple iPad ushers in the era of tablet computing, with a slate-style handheld that looks nothing like a typical computer.

Best-in-class touch interface, large display shows pics and videos beautifully, all-day battery life

No way to manage files, no camera, no multitasking, lack of Flash support cripples many Web sites, poor scaling of iPhone apps

One app that doesn't come preinstalled is iBooks, Apple's one-stop shop for reading and shopping for e-books. The first time you access the App Store, you get a prompt asking whether you want to download iBooks. And of course, you can add apps from the...

Apple iPad review: why it's a genuine leap forward

 

The most important part of any tablet, whatever the quad-core brigade may say, is the screen. Unlike any internal component, the screen is what you'll still be noticing a week after your purchase, the part upon which all of your attention is focused....

If you already own an iPad 2 – or to a certain extent, the original iPad – the core tablet experience remains similar; if you avoid looking at any new iPads, you could carry on as before. But when you’ve seen that new screen, it will be hard to resist...

Apple iPad

 

The Apple iPad is the first affordable tablet computer worth owning, but it won't (yet) replace your laptop.

In an act of aggressive tech convergence, Apple has consolidated your Netbook, e-reader, gaming device, photo frame, and iPod into an elegant, affordable supergadget ; Bluetooth ; 802.11n Wi-Fi ; Movie rentals ; 10 hours of battery life ; Optional 3G...

The iPad's large size is as much a hindrance as it is an advantage ; The iPad can't entirely mimic many of the specialised products it seeks to replace ; Limited multitasking capabilities ; Lack of integrated video camera, Flash support, and HD video...

The Apple iPad is a gorgeous piece of technology and is sure to wow your friends and make them instantly jealous all at once, but it is not something you need. The iPad is a luxury item, like a foot spa or a chocolate fountain, and while it's nice to...
