5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this tablet computer was released.

Average Processor Frequency

At 1.3 gigahertz, the Apple iPad Air has a fairly standard processor frequency compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the iPad Air.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519374_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

With a rear camera resolution (numeric) of 5 megapixels, the iPad Air has a relatively standard rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the iPad Air.

Chart Edit

Two Processor Coress

The number of processor coress on the Apple iPad Air is two. That's average compared to the other 25 A7 processor tablet computers that are a similar age to the iPad Air that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.

We compared all the other 2 processor cores tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price] is also worth considering.

If this tablet has too few processor coress then you might want to consider the Gigaset QV830[plb_2981383_price] (4 processor coress).

Average Display Diagonal

The Apple iPad Air has a pretty average display diagonal (7.9 inches) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 7.9" tablet computers currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price] which has better reviews.

If this Apple tablet display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Gigaset QV830[plb_2981383_price] (8"), or the Apple iPad Air[plb_2031190_price] (9.7").
