    I upgraded from the iPad 2 to the new air. Wow what an upgrade. At first I didn't think it was worth the upgrade but it def was!

    It's super light and quick. I traded my iPad 2 in at best buy and I had gift cards after everything with the smart cover it was $320

    It sure is. People have been complaining about how the display feels. I think it feels just fine.

    Thank you! I haven't noticed any issues as of yet. But I haven't really looked.

    Nice. I went with the black. I upgraded from a mini. Had a 2 before that.

    Black looks good. But I love white! Everything I own is in white! From my cars to my phone lol.

    It's a wonderful device. Grants on your purchase! How much storage did you get?

    I got the black because they were sold out of the white. Black looks sweet but I think I want my white back. The black just shows off too many smudges. Might have to go exchange it. Congrats on your upgrade!

    The speed of this iPad Air really impressed me coming from the iPad2. I'm glad I held out. It was hard to wait, but the iPad Air is really a quantum leap for me over the iPad2. Also, the added storage was a plus. Of course the display is also fabulous when compared to the iPad2. Man, if they get Retina on an Macbook Air with cellular I'll be all over that! In the meantime I'm looking hard at the Logitech Fabric Keyboard.

    Im also an iPad 2 ex-user and yeah - this is quite an upgrade in every area. That doesnt mean I still dont love and appreciate what my baby did for me. The 2 was an immensely awesome product but it was time. My youngest daughter has my 2 now so its still in the family ;)

    @ TC400: Where did you buy the stand for your iPad Air? I want to buy one! Thanks in advance.

    Also upgraded from an iPad 2 (which I loved and still own) and the difference with the Air is night and day in every aspect. It is just a killer machine. Lighter, thiner, smaller, faster and just a more modern looking design. Couldn't be happier.

    16gb.

    It was a cheap little dock I picked up at Gabirel Brothers. When I get home I'll see if I can get some more info for you. It fits in there nice and snug!

    I agree! While this iPad doesn't have everything I wanted ( touch ID and a gold option ) I am still very happy. I am sad to see my iPad 2 go. But I couldn't part with it. But when I heard about the promotion I figured might as well. They gave me what the site quoted. Mine was in immaculate condition. To be quite honest I hardly used it. But I enjoyed it very much. But the difference is night and day as you stated. So much lighter, faster and thinner. I love the thinner bezel makes it much easier to type now.

    Black is nice. But it's all to common. White is very nice and just looks better.

    And thank you!

    ----------

    I think we can all agree that the iPad 3/4 were not just not upgrade worthy if you were coming from the iPad 2. It seems a lot of people held on to their iPad 2 and for good reasons. Still runs the latest iOS and hell Apple still sells them!

    Sadly I couldn't keep mine in the family. If it wasn't for the trade in and the gift cards that I had I personally still would have my iPad 2.

    The white plastic on the back of the cellular model bothers me. That's why I'd choose grey. Although, what I really want is slated.
