I'm coming from an Ipad2 and haven't really played around much with Ipad 3,4 or mini. The Air display really feels like plasticky to me. It has that plastic texture and feel and seems to give and flex a bit when touched. You definitely know the Ipad 2 display covering is glass. Please tell me I'm wrong and there's a reason for the way it looks and feels. It feels like it would scratch very easy. I generally don't put screen protectors on my Ipads but wonder in this case if I should. Hopefully there is a logical explanation. No other complaints about the Air except I extremely dislike the IOS 7 display changes compared to IOS 6. I read other's are unhappy too, do you think Apple will release an update to give users the choice to revert to previous display layout? I wish Apple would allow third party keyboard apps. At least I found a decent looking third party calculator app.
