The king of the hill... for now
xtremesv has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Except for the iPad 3 I've owned all iPads and after a disappointing experience with a Samsung tablet (I got it because I love my Galaxy phone, big mistake) I returned to the iPad buying the fourth version and now the Air. Obviously the design language is mini-esque and you can tell it's lighter without compromising its premium look, my only complaint is the "glass" of the display which has a plasticky feel to it, everything else is excellent, superb display, very nice audio, amazing battery life, the best selection of tablet-optimized apps and accesories. Apple must not rest on their laurels though, competition is closing the gap quickly and one of the things Apple ought to change immediately is the premiun asked for larger storage options, $100 for doubling storage is insane nowadays you can buy a 64 GB SSD for $60.

Powerful And Slim
User72042 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
We're All Familiar With iPads But This One Is a Huge Upgrade From My Previous iPad,The First Generation Mini,Display Is One Of Those Huge Upgrades,Plus That Fast A7 Chip,But iOS Still Needs Some Work,And The Camera Is Nothing To Write Home About Plus It Lacks Flash,And iTunes Is Not My Favourite,But The Build Quality Is Awsome,Overall Its screen is identical to the one we know from its predecessor - a 9.7-inch Retina Display with oleophobic coating and resolution of 1536 by 2048 pixels. Under the hood, Apple has chosen to install its A7 chip, which is the very same 64-bit SoC powering the iPhone 5s. As a result, the new iPad is two times faster than the previous model And Connecting to the internet is done either via Wi-Fi, or over a 4G LTE network, Apple's iOS 7 operating system is loaded onto the tablet, with iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps included at no cost.

Thinnest ipad air with more power inside
htainlintha has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
It is just lighter, but compare this tablet to my Note 10.1 2014 edition,it isn't much competitive to it. The screen is just as the same as ipad 4, from this I should have bought ipad mini 2. Multimedia and the rest are quite OK with me. Battery life is among the best out there. I am a bit hateful about itune as ipad rely too much on it,I can't connect it to any PCs/Macs and clouding/syncing needs itunes, which is quite bad for me as I use windows 8 for both of my work and home. When android can do everything over the air,no software support is needed. Great app store is there to support the fame of ipad. 5mp camera sucks though I don't use too often.iOS7 is too boring now and too limited in usability.Unfortunately this is my last idevice.So,after using it for 2 to 3 weeks I just give it to my one of the younger cousins.

This is awesome compared to other android tablets out there. keeping in mind that other have a quad core processor and hell a lot higher frequency, apple still manage to keep up the pace even with a dual core 1.4 Ghz processor. it's just amazing. I think the only other company can design processors as good as apples' is intel.

The Power of Lightness
Shahriyar has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
You have to hold iPad Air to believe it. It’s just 7.5 millimeters thin and weighs just one pound. The stunning Retina display sits inside thinner bezels, so all you see is your content. And an incredible amount of power lies inside the sleek enclosure. So you can do so much more. With so much less.
The new A7 chip in iPad Air was designed with 64-bit architecture.So you get incredible power in a device you can take with you wherever you go.
The redesigned Smart Cover and Smart Case are a perfect fit for iPad Air. They automatically wake it when opened and put it to sleep when closed. They also fold to create a great stand for reading, viewing, and typing. And they come in a whole range of colors. So they don’t just work smart, they look smart.

The best tablet that I have, and possibly in the world
Elroy_Goh has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Speedy, sleek and satisfaction. These are the three words that describe the excellent iPad Air. Using it ever since I bought it on the first day it was released in 1 November 2013, the iPad Air is an excellent table has has brought me great joy to use. Upgrading from a 1st generation iPad from 2010, the iPad Air has all the qualities that make an iPad special, and along with a super-slim design that is comfortable to hold, lightning-fast because of the powerful A7 and M7 chips, and coming along with the essential critically acclaimed and user-intuitive iOS 7 and iOS 8 (I upgraded), the iPad Air is a tablet that is simply the best in its class. Too bad there isn't Touch ID.

A balance between Air and Pro
Alvin has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
iPad Air is definitely the best iPad from Apple , and it is the best tablet in stock right now . iPad Air continues the innovation since the original iPad . It is everything an iPad (4th generation) , adding stronger processor and a few new features , but in a body that is 24% smaller . Built with environmental-friendly materials such as aluminium and glass . High-class and solid unibody construction . A beautiful Retina display . 64-bit desktop-class processor , which will be significantly faster when playing heavy-duty games and using professional applications . It is a great step forward in the future development of iPads . All iLife and iWork apps will be available for free too which is just killer . If Touch ID is present and the camera has been improved . No one can compete with it . I used to own an iPad (3rd generation) . When I hold iPad air and use it for the first time , it's wow !
