Well, since there was no pro launched and since the Air 2 looks like a spec bumpped 1 with a slightly thinner design I'll be skipping this one. My current Air should be fine for the next 12 months. TouchID and an improved screen aren't enough to warrant the upgrade for me.

I'm going for the Space Gray WiFi-version anyway, but I still doubt between the 16GB and 64GB option. Only 100 bucks extra for 3x more storage. But do I really need 64GB? Where the hell is thee 32GB option?! :(

In most cases, men go for the Space Grey version. White and Gold are typically reserved for women.

I can live without touch ID, but for every 12 months you wait to upgrade, expect to lose another $100 or more in resale value for your current device. The more often you upgrade, the less you lose. A used Air you can sell for $300 today will be older, slower, and likely more worn looking in 12 months.

Very difficult to know which one to go for. Space Grey for colour as I've gone off the white front although loved it a few years ago.

I've always gone for 32gb but my use of the iPad has changed over the last year with my current Air. Don't put music or movies on it any more, just a few photos and not that many apps. Got bored with all the daft games etc.

I think I'll save a few bucks and go for the 16gb. The money saved will cover a nice dark blue smart case!

Space Grey 64GB 4G + WiFi for me. I've had the 16GB Air without cellular since Christmas and been very happy with it, however i miss having a black bezel iPad to match my iPhone 6 in Space Grey. The temptation for only an extra £100 for the 64Gb over 16Gb rather than 32GB is a definite plus for me!

If it turns out the Air 2 has 2GB of RAM, then I _may_ end up getting one. And if I do, it will be the 128GB Space Gray.

Strange to admit, but the more I see of the gold one I am beginning to prefer it to the other colours. Features a lot in the Apple adds so maybe they know people will migrate towards the new colour. Was the most popular for the iPhone 6 I believe.
