Jason Snell Reviews the iPad Air 2

1 December 2014Apple

Jason Snell:

Yes, Apple has shaved 1.4 millimeters off the thickness of the original iPad Air, and roughly 33 grams off the weight. There’s a nice commercial where a laser beam cuts off part of that pencil from the original iPad Air commercial, because the iPad Air 2 is thinner than a pencil, you see.

Forget all that. Apple’s continual quest for thinness remains intact, but the biggest improvements on this device come courtesy of features any old-school computer nerd could love, namely fast chips and more RAM.
