On sale for $559 (was $599), the new Apple iPad Air comes with a large 10.9-inch Retina Display (the standard version and the iPad have a 10.2-inch display) and 64GB of on-board storage and 3GB of memory—so it’s more powerful and speedier than previous models. In just about every way, it’s bigger, faster, sharper and sleeker too. There’s a reason why it’s called an iPad Air: It’s lightweight, coming in at about one pound. It truly hits the sweet spot between power and design.

“I love this iPad,” raved a delighted Amazon shopper. “It’s lightweight, easy to use and the battery is long lasting. After knowing all that it can do, it is very well worth the price. I am very happy with this purchase and it was delivered in a timely manner with no issues.”
