I had a old iPad 1 and had not upgraded in years. But I was blown away by Air 2.nnPros:n- Great display, brilliant colors and PPIn- loved simple games like subway surfers, temple run and the standard fare, yet to try 3D intensive gamesn- decent camera, nothing to brag aboutn- epic zen garden with the unreal engine really pushes the gfx and performs greatnnCons:n- price, price, price! com'on Apple you cant be this greedynnGiven the really steep price its just making it unaffordable unless you are a real apple fan.
IPAD if spoils after warranty (even after 1 day) is not repairable. Mine was just out of warranty for 20 days. I am at a loss. Apple is insisting I buy one more new one at 70% of the cost. Which is insane. It's like saying its an use and throw device.Please be careful before you make a decision to buy IPAD. I have lost my time and patience running around Apple service centers and customer support. IPAD IF GONE BAD IN ANY FORM IS NOT REPAIRABLE. YOU NEED TO BUY A NEW ONE !!!!!This is my Apple case ID if anyone is interested. 1050504324
