    The iPad Air is a serious improvement over the forth-generation iPad, as the fifth-gen iPad is 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than the iPad 4 and has a iPad Mini-like design. It also comes with the A7 chip, that provides a blazing fast performance with the 64-bit desktop-class chip architecture. Just like the iPhone 5s, Apple's fifth-gen iOS tablet also comes with M7 motion co-processor which will do wonders in fitness-related applications. iPad Air also has improved ultrafast wireless connectivity and faster built-in Wi-Fi.

    But besides these major differences, there are other tech specs that you need to take a close loook at. To help you decide whether you need to upgrade to iPad Air or not, have a look at the detailed specs comparison table above. After having compared closely the two iPad models, are you going to get the iPad Air or wait for the next year model?

    Thanks for that! I bought the iPad 4 a few months ago, but the iPad Air looks quite interesting.

    It is a difference for those who have only an IPad 2. This is a big update to what I currently have, however, pleased to say that my iPad 2 continues to do what I need it to do without issue!

    Thanks for that, that's awesome!

    Doesn't seem to be a huge difference though. Not what I thought. Doesn't mean I don't still want it!!

    I'm not to knowledgeable about CPU-related things, but I have a feeling the processor difference is a bit difference.
