    I'm still using an iPad 2. For almost everything I do, its fine for me (I don't play games, I'm not bothered about high pixel density).

    The only thing that irritates me is tabbed browsing. I can only have 2-3 tabs open before tabs need to be reloaded when switching. I suppose this is a RAM issue.

    How much better is tabbed browsing on the iPad Air?

    Until we get updates to the IOS nobody can say. Personally I wish safari was tabless or at least had the option at this point.

    I'm not sure you understood my question. On my iPad 2, if I have 3 tabs open I can generally switch between tabs without the tabs having to reload. However, often if I have a 4th tab open, pages need to reload when I switch tabs. I assume this is because having 4 tabs open pushes the RAM capacity. iPad Air had more RAM so surely can handle more tabs. The question is, how much more?

    iPad air may have more ram (vs iPad 2) but it is running iOS 7 and 64 bit apps which take up more ram. End result is iPad air reloads tabs just as often because of a mistake apple has made.

    Ah ok, I didn't even know there was an issue with tabbed browsing on the Air. I guess there's no point me upgrading then.

    Exactly, nobody can tell if the Air will handle tabs any better until we get 7.1 released.
