When will Apple get the speaker placement right.Love the Air but hate speaker placement. I know there is not much room to work with but I also wish they would try some different kinds of speakers for the Air
It is what it is. Apple keeps making it thinner and lighter so speakers and their placement will always be restricted. My Air's speakers seem quite good.
Then never pick up a Kindle Fire HD or HDX
Seriously - I love my iPad Air (as I loved the Mini, 3, 2, and original iPad before it) ... but the speakers are NOT one of the reasons. Low volume, crappy low-frequency response, one-sided orientation, and so on.
Note that it isn't something Apple is touting - and also how the 'thin & light' 7" Kindle Fire HDX is nearly as heavy as the 9.7" Air ... different products for different needs.
"different products for different needs" and the choice is your to make.
