"I gotta have one!" – that's probably the thought bouncing back and forth in the mind of anyone who witnessed the iPad Air announcement. And we cannot blame them. After all, Apple has clearly put quite a lot of effort in designing its newest tablet, thus making it significantly superior to its predecessor in more than one way. The iPad Air is faster, thinner, lighter, and good-looking, so we won't be surprised if we see it selling like hot cakes once it is released.
However, the iPad Air isn't necessarily the best tablet of this size that money can buy. Some might need something more affordable, while others might prefer and Android or a Windows 8 based slate instead. Well, for them we have prepared a list of iPad Air alternatives that anyone should take a look at prior to impulsively adding Apple's slate to their shopping cart. Will any of these tablets end up in your hands instead of the iPad Air? Let us know in the comments!
