USA Today’s Baig reviews Apple’s 64-bit iPad Air: Best of breed, superior to each and every rival

“This latest full-size Apple tablet is the most tempting iPad yet, better than its already best of breed predecessors, superior still to each and every rival big screen slate that I’ve tested,” Edward C. Baig reports for USA Today. “Apple dominates the tablet apps ecosystem. Its tablet remains the easiest to use.”

“The thinner and lighter design on this latest iPad is the chief reason to cheer the new model. It measures 9.4 x 6.6 x 0.29 inches and is 20% thinner than its immediate predecessor,” Baig reports. “And you really feel the difference in weight, which is down to 1 pound for the Air, vs. 1.4 pounds on the fourth generation iPad.”

“Apple refreshed internal components of the iPad Air as well. Wi-Fi gets a technological boost. Apple beefed up the processor with its own A7 chip, doubling the processing power, it says, compared to the prior generation. A motion co-processor was also added,” Baig reports. “The thin design only enhances what is already the best and most successful tablet on the market.”
