    I am upgrading from an iPad 2 to iPad Air. This iPad Air reminds me of an iPad Mini "big brother". The shape and design is exactly like the iPad Mini, except that it's larger. The iPad Air is much lighter than the iPad 2, but weight was not an issue for me. However, I do admit that I read Kindle books lying flat back on the bed and occasionally the iPad 2 did drop on my face. But, guess what, I did the exact same thing with the iPad Air! The reason is because I doze off to sleep when I read too long lying down, not really because it was too heavy. The SPEED of the iPad Air is definitely faster, but honestly, if the iPad 2 processor performance wasn't hit negatively after upgrading to iOS 7, I would not had switched to iPad Air so quickly... if at all. If this is your first iPad, then get it as you will not be disappointed in the performance, apps and quality of the tablet. If this is an upgrade from iPad 2, get if you plan to do MORE than reading books, browsing/surfing the web and reading email messages. iPad Air is heavier and larger than the iPad Mini so that's a preference selection (whatever floats your boat). My wife loves the iPad Mini but does not care for the iPad Air.

    Not intuitive and no way to know what to do with it after you get it set up. Written manual? One sentence on a little card. Downloaded manual? Sketchy at best. If you know how to use your iPhone you are all set--I guess. I don't have an iPhone but my neighbor does, so I'll ask him how to use it. As you can tell, I'm not a Generation X or Y or whatever.

    Probably will be great--if I ever understand fully how to use it.

      I bought this as an upgrade gift for my wife. She uses it for e-mail, web surfing, and especially, Facebook. She absolutely loves it. Other uses are for Scrabble and and a few other games plus taking photos. Resolution is outstanding. B&H shipping was fast and packaging was well done.

              touch screen feels a bit strange as if there is a thin layer of empty space beneath the top surface.

                  First IPAD I purchased. My wife is using it for school. Is much lighter compared to her laptop and much easier to work with. It takes less space and battery last for days. It can be used anywhere in the house without being bulky. I also connected the IPAD to the Apple router on the N band. Is extremely fast. Her laptop has G only wifi card. Laptop company wanted $$$ for thier N card, as is proprietary. With the IPAD the N 2.4 and 5 Ghz is built in so it works perfectly fast. The school she goes to has a lot of course on line and on podacast so it works great for that. Recommended for school, college and anywhere in between.

                      This is my second iPad. I also have the iPad 3. This one is much lighter but more importantly much faster than the older model. Getting it from B&H offered the best price and fast fast shipping. I always feel confident when buying from B&H.

                                  The Ipad Air's battery life is awesome. Over 10 hours so far. Young and old and in-between find it a wonderful product. We ordered two for gifts from B & H Video Store online assuming we would not get them by the weekend with Holiday shipping, but they were our first gifts to arrive for our early Christmas. B & H Video had the best deal too!

                                      The iPad Air is much thinner and lighter than earlier models. The iOS operating system is great, very intuitive. I highly recommend this product.

                                        I got the iPad Air for my wife who also has an iPhone 5. The user interface is almost identical to it, so there's minimal learning required for anyone who is familiar with an iPhone but doesn't want to squint at a tiny phone screen. The iPad Air is, as expected, very snappy and responsive when browsing and watching videos.

                                          I had the iPad 2 and sold it to buy the iPad Air...I LOVE it...the size, the resolution, the weight...at 1st, I didn't think that I would notice these changes, but I do now...My Mac Book Pro might be staying at home in 2014 when I start traveling.
                                          Get this item or any Apple Product from B&H... they have live chat if you need any questions answered, like had!!! Free shipping and awesome Customer Support...I have all Apple products now and they came from B&H

                                            nothing to complain about here except the Apple price, not B & H!! The iPad air screams at super speeds; a huge difference from our older model.

                                              I have been looking for a new tablet since my last iPad 2 stolen. I decided to try out Android tablet cause I get so used with my Android Smart Phone. I was looking at Samsung then bought a Sony. They all plastic design, heavy and kind of cheap looking. The OS is not really up to the part as I expected. Thanks god, B&H allows me to return my Sony and trade for this iPad Air and WOW, its unbeatable. Solid design yet very slim and light. I love laying in bed reading materials, news, catch up emails and watch movies before bed. Its a PERFECT tool for me. I love everything about it. Access internet with a new Apple Airport is WILD. The OS works flawlessly with the hardware. Animation is so smooth and real to motion. Thank you B&H and Apple for such a wonderful product. My investment worth every penny.
