Others are wondering if the new thinner iPad Air feels cheap? Or will it be too light for some people? Come check out the hands on video review and detailed pictures of Apple’s new iPad Air, we will tell you what we think!

The New iPad Air

Apple has been able to once again make a new product that is smaller, lighter, and faster without forcing the customer to feel like they need to compromise in features, specs, or size.

If you are upgrading form any other older version of iPad, the new iPad Air is a true upgrade that you can feel good about purchasing.

The new iPad Air has shrunk in all dimensions compared to its predecessors, Apple has actually made the new iPad Air tablet an amazing 0.29 inches thick (just like the iPad Mini).

This is Apple’s thinnest iPad tablet with a 9.7” screen to date, all while featuring the faster A7 processor, adding the amazing Retina Display (we all love), and still be able to pack in a 10 hour battery life.
