4 Reasons For
Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Tablet Computers
On average Apple A7 processor tablets have excellent reviews compared to other brands as do all tablets manufactured by Apple.
Quite Large Internal Storage Capacity
The internal storage capacity of tablets of a comparable spec and age to the iPad Air range from 8GB to 130GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 49GB. With an internal storage capacity of 64 gigabytes, the Apple iPad Air has one of the larger internal storage capacity amongst A7 processor tablets of this age.
If you are looking for a larger internal storage capacity then you might want to consider the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] (128GB), the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519363_price] (128GB), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519391_price] (128GB) all from Apple which is also cheaper.
Quite Large Screen Size
The smallest screen size of tablets that were released around the same time as the iPad Air is 7.8" and the largest is 9.7". With a screen size of 9.7 inches, the iPad Air has one of the larger screen sizes amongst A7 processor tablets of this age.
Alternative 9.7" tablets currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper tablet computers such as the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], or the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] both from Apple.
1080p Video Recording Mode
This tablet computer has a 1080p|720p video recording mode, which is the most commonly found video recording mode on tablets of this age and spec.
3 Reasons Against
Not 4G Compatible
The iPad Air is not 4G compatible. Most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for more than two years are also not 4G compatible.
If you are looking for a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might want to look at the iPad Air[pl_3809771_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519374_price] both from Apple.
Not 3G Compatible
The Apple iPad Air is not 3G compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other A7 processor tablets that came out around the same time as the iPad Air are also not 3G compatible.
Tablet computers which are 3G compatible that might also be worth looking at include the iPad Air[pl_3809771_price], or the iPad Mini (3rd gen)[pl_2519374_price] both from Apple.
At 469 grams, the iPad Air is fairly heavy compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the iPad Air. The weights of tablets that were released more than two years ago range from 330g to 480g.
4 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

It was over three years ago when this A7 processor tablet computer was released.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 1.3 gigahertz, the iPad Air has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable age and type to the iPad Air.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers currently available including cheaper tablets such as the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], or the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] both from Apple.
Average Rear Camera Resolution
The Apple iPad Air has a relatively standard rear camera resolution (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that are a similar age to the iPad Air.
Alternative 5MP rear camera resolution tablets currently available which you might also want to consider include the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], or the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] both from Apple which is cheaper.
+2 Other reasons
Two Processor Cores
The number of processor cores on the iPad Air is two. That's average compared to the other 25 A7 processor tablets that have been available for a similar time to the iPad Air 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 tablets currently available including cheaper tablets such as the iPad Air[pl_1737207_price], or the iPad Air[pl_2108818_price] both from Apple.
