3 Reasons Against

Not 4G

The iPad Air is not 4G, although this is within the context that most of the other tablets of this age and spec are also not 4G.

5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air

Released Over Three Years Ago

This tablet has been on the market for over three years.

Average Processor Frequency

At 1.3 gigahertz, the iPad Air has a pretty average processor frequency compared to most of the other tablet computers of a similar spec and age to the iPad Air.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablets currently available including the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) which has better reviews.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

With an internal storage capacity of 64 gigabytes, the Apple iPad Air has a relatively typical internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable age and spec to the iPad Air.

If you are looking for a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to look at the iPad Air (128GB), or the iPad Mini (3rd gen) (128GB) both from Apple.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

The Apple iPad Air has a relatively standard rear camera resolution (numeric) (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablet computers that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Two Processor Coress

The iPad Air is a two processor cores tablet which is average compared to the other 25 tablet computers of a similar age and type 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 and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen) ($319.25) is also worth considering.

Tablet computers with more processor coress that might be worth looking at include the Gigaset QV830 (4 processor coress).
