5 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Tablet Reviews

On average Apple A7 processor tablet computers have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all tablets manufactured by Apple.

Quite Large Internal Storage Capacity

Across all the tablets of this age and type the internal storage capacitys range from 4GB to 130GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 48GB.

Quite Large Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 9.7 inches, the Apple iPad Air has a fairly large display diagonal compared to most of the other tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the iPad Air. The smallest display diagonal of A7 processor tablet computers that were released more than two years ago is 7.8" and the largest is 9.7".

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 9.7" tablet computers currently available including cheaper tablets such as the iPad Air[pl_2031190_price], or the iPad Air[pl_2034560_price] both from Apple.
