I am super, super happy with my iPad Air. Even the more "hollow" sounding screen doesn't bother me that much (a thinner screen is something I am willing to sacrifice for a lighter iPad). The iPad is the best tablet on the market but I am so glad I only bought the base 16GB model since I plan on using this for only a year and reselling it next year for the next model. Anyone else think the Air refreshes a smaller amount of tabs much more often than an iPad 3 or 4? This is coming from someone that has owned an iPad 3 since launch and has logged in at least 4 hours a day for the past 19 months dating back to March. I feel this has to do with the Air having an "adequate" amount of RAM, and not a "substantial" amount. Like I said, I owned a 3 for 19 months before selling it and used it heavily. I can notice these nuances. I have been "burned" with the iPad 3 by getting the 32GB model since I figured I would own that model for years to come (and thus decided to get the $600 model) but it proved to be a little gimped due to the A5X. To me the iPad 2 and the iPad 4 have the longest "legs" in terms of staying power while the iPad 1 and 3 were underpowered for its time. I feel like the iPad Air 2 (if it has 2GB of RAM) will be the "next" 2 and 4 while the current Air is slightly gimped with the 1GB RAM.
