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.

              Very happy with the purchase. Purchased the device as a business tool for square register for my dance studio. Not only is this more convenient for the business but it's also pleasing to the eye of my costumers. B&H Photo has not let me down and I will continue to buy from them and recommend to my network.

                We bought this iPAD for my son as all students entering his high school are required to have a full or mini iPAD. We bought the iPAD air because its larger size helps with keyboarding.
                The iPAD air is fast and has been working flawlessly. The voice recognition feature is great and we're still discovering all the various functions built into the machine.
                The only issue we've had was to figure out that the password to our modem is case sensitive! Once we got that figured out, the rest has been easy.

                  Upgraded from the iPad 4th Gen to the iPad Air, it is much lighter, smaller, and noticeably faster than the last generation. I use it for many music apps, and the performance is great. I don't have any complaints. The service from B&H as always was professional, fast & courteous.

                        This is my second iPad. I also have Android Tablets. I use my iPad Air exclusively when I am away from home. It gives me seamless access to my iMac at home because it mirrors my iMac. This and its very fast WiFi connectivity is a great advantage for me. It has wonderful resolution which makes watching video clips a pleasure. All the features are great. I recommend this iPad Air with great pleasure. Thanks.

                        Bought this for my wife. Her (previous version) iPad was still in fine shape but she's been exceptionally good lately so...got her the iPad Air. It is significantly lighter with the same screen size. Quality build like most Apple products. She likes to read the paper, check her mail and sometimes read books on her iPad while in bed. The lighter weight was immediately noticeable to her and she likes it. All in all a good move. I'll be collecting on it for at least 4 months. B&H shipped it fast at a price as low as anyone's. No hassles whatsoever with them. When I'm ready for a new computer or my wife is ready for a new iPad, they will get my business.

                          Purchased this for my daughter who is in college. She LOVES her iPad. She's only been using it for about a week but says it has been great to use in class to take notes. She is loving how light weight and easily portable it is with great internet access.

                            For a long time I could not see any use for an iPad. However, while on vacation hauling my books around during quiet times was a chore. I saw many individuals using tablets at poolside and decided, "why not?" I have an iMac, iPod, iPhone and I took the plunge. All my electronic needs, both photo and electronic have been fulfilled by B&H in the past. The product itself is Apple quality and wonderful design. The lightweight unit and its capabilities separate it from other "similar" products. One pays a premium for Apple products which I believe is money well spent.
