    Just acquired an Anker Smart Cover that includes a very thin, keyboard case and flip stand. Now I can actually do documents, spreadsheets,etc. via Pages, Numbers and keynote. Wow! plus all the stuff mentioned in the quote and then some. I have a big notebook also. But, iPad reigns supreme for consumption ... now productivity also

    My wife had an ASUS net-book, with Win XP (as my desktop has). The grand-kids surprised her with an iPad as a birthday gift. She was completely flummoxed by the differences and wasn't very interested in trying to figure out the iPad. A couple of weeks later, she was working on the iPad and the power cord, across the side table, dumped a glass of Pinot Grigio all over her (powered-up) net-book. She didn't realise it had happened until the following morning. Needless to say, the net-book is history.

    To my surprise, since DW isn't particularly computer-savvy, she decided to abandon MS and learn Apple. It's still a project in work, but she's a lot better on the iPad than I am. My computing background goes back to the mid-1960s, with ALGOL (programs on punched paper tape), then FORTRAN (using IBM cards) and later, in flight simulator engineering, Singer Link and Honeywell assembly language. Finally, before retirement, I got into real-time scientific FORTRAN in flight simulators.

    I have absolutely no experience with Apple and I'm no help to DW at all. Surprisingly, she seems to be figuring out the intricacies of the iPad without much involvement with me. I guess that's an accolade to the non-geek capabilities of Apple software.

    I second all of the above. Plus, after 4 years of use (first by my wife, now by me) along with PC laptop and iPhone 5s (new), I am thinking the iPad2 with 64 Gb of storage is rather ideal for quick transfer of photos from my camera(s) ... SD cards (while traveling). Later on, I will use my laptop as my main storage and backup since it has a huge hard drive (750 GB). It also backs up both mobile devices. I back up further from the laptop to external hard drives. iCloud seems nice at first, but expensive to access and is slow (my Mi-Fi is slow and expensive when I exceed its capped 5 gb limit).

    I use it to stream music to bluetooth speakers (Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud) and play games. I also use the kindle app on commutes.

    Watch videos on Youtube, check emails, shopping, play games, listen music, edit photos (even though it is not the best option but I like editing photos on my iPad and then to the final touch ups on my PC, yes I use a PC). Also recently I came to know that you can edit videos on iPad Air, is it true?

    Apple has the iMovie app, for editing videos, available free to purchasers of a new iOS device, such as your new iPad Air. Look in the apps made by Apple section in the AppStore.
