5 Reasons For

Apple Tablet Computers Have Excellent Reviews

Apple has excellent average ratings for its A7 processor tablets as well as across its entire tablet computer range compared to other manufacturers.

4G Compatible

The Apple iPad Air is 4G compatible, unlike most of the other tablets of this type and age which are not 4G compatible.

We compared all the other 4G compatible tablets to this tablet and we think the iPad Air[pl_3809771_price], and the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519374_price] both from Apple which has better reviews; or the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737207_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

3G Compatible

The iPad Air is 3G compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other tablets of this spec and age are not 3G compatible.

We compared this tablet to all the other 3G compatible tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Air[plb_1737207_price] which is cheaper; or the iPad Air[pl_3809771_price], and the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519374_price] both from Apple which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Very Large Screen Size

The iPad Air has one of the largest screen sizes (9.7 inches) amongst A7 processor tablets of this age. Across all the tablets that are a similar age to the iPad Air the screen sizes range from 7.8" to 9.7".

We compared this tablet to all the other 9.7" tablet computers and we think the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], the iPad Air[pl_2090829_price], and the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] all from Apple which is cheaper is also worth considering.

4 Reasons Against

Across all the A7 processor tablets that have been available for a comparable time to the iPad Air the weights range from 330g to 480g, and the average weight is 390g. At 478 grams, the iPad Air is fairly heavy compared to most of the other tablet computers of this spec and age.

Across all the A7 processor tablets that have been around for more than two years the browsing times range from 9h to 10h, and the average browsing time is 9.4h. With a browsing time of only 9 hours, the iPad Air has one of the shorter browsing times amongst A7 processor tablets of this age.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

Released Over Two Years Ago

This Apple tablet was released over two years ago.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 1.3 gigahertz, the iPad Air has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable type and age to the iPad Air.

Alternative 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers currently available that you might want to consider include the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], the iPad Air[pl_2090829_price], or the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] all from Apple which is cheaper.

Average Rear Camera Resolution

At 5 megapixels, the Apple iPad Air has a fairly average rear camera resolution compared to most of the other tablets of this type and age.

We compared this tablet to all the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers and we think the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], the iPad Air[pl_2090829_price], and the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] all from Apple which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Storage Capacity

With an internal storage capacity of 16 gigabytes, the iPad Air has a relatively standard internal storage capacity compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that were released around the same time as the iPad Air.

If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the iPad Air[pl_2090829_price] (64GB and cheaper), the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] (128GB and cheaper), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519363_price] (128GB and cheaper) all from Apple.

Two Processor Cores

The Apple iPad Air is a two processor core tablet which is average compared to the other 25 tablets of this age and spec that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2 processor core tablet computers currently available including cheaper tablet computers such as the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], the iPad Air[pl_2090829_price], or the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] all from Apple.
