Average Processor Frequency

With a processor frequency of 1.3 gigahertz, the iPad Air has a fairly typical processor frequency compared to most of the other tablets of this type and age.

We compared this tablet 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; or the Apple iPad Air[plb_2034560_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
