    I'm loving mine! I only bought a 16 gb wifi for the sake of using it to watch tv in bed but if I decide to skip the retina mini to replace my 1st gen mini then I'm going to return this one for more space and lte. It's so lovely and light!!

    If my iCloud restore would finish I think I'd have some love. God iCloud sucks. :mad:

    Mine restored in like 5 minutes. It was the smoothest ever restore for me.

    It never takes 5 minutes for me. That's what 64GB of restoring will do though :D

    Love mine.
    Solves all the problems I had with the 3rd gen. Now the horrid 3rd gen is a distant memory.

    The Air is feat of engineering.


    Love it.

    Very pleased! It's a very solid device. The size/weight are impressive but the thing folks won't realize until they use it is how FAST THIS THING IS. It's performance is off the charts fast.

    Well done Apple on this one.

    Totally love mine. Best tablet ever. People love to find things to hate. I woke up at 3am to make sure I got 128GB space grey. My iCloud restore was the fastest and smoothest I've ever seen. My iPhone took overnight and multiple restarts to restore. I expected to not have a usable tablet but it restored everything in like 10 minutes. Best of all, I was able to download 6 movies and I still have a little over 60GB free. The device is such a joy to hold and use I can't put it down. I can also finally can hold a full sized iPad with 1 hand and interact with the other. I still have my old iPad and the heavy ness is dramatically less.

    I'm happy with mine. The upgrade to Retina is nice and it is lighter. I just need my keyboard case to come in.

    Lucky for you. I don't know why I have such issues with iCloud on my iPad. iPhone works great. Anyway I had to resort to iTunes. Whoever designed the mess that is the current version of iTunes needs to be fired. :mad:

    I'm very happy with it and it has met or exceeded my expectations thus far.

    Seriously don't understand how anyone could not love this thing

    I upgraded from an iPad 3 to the iPad air and I like my iPad 3 but there were many things about it that I found frustrating mainly the fact that there was a seemingly slow response time especially when I use speech recognition. But now the iPad air is everything I always hoped a tablet would be. When I try to do something it does it right and very quickly. It feels much more comfortable in my hands. The iPad 3 always felt like something that I was really looking forward to in a futuristic sense but not quite there yet. This thing makes me feel like I'm John Luke Picard dictating my captain's log.

    I upgraded from a iPad 4th gen. My main reason was size/weight. I love it. It feels so much lighter and smaller that I had to double check the box to make sure it wasn't a mini. I don't notice any crazy improvements in speed over the previous generation and I turned on reduce motion because the animations stuttered. But overall love it! Was considering the tmobile version but I think I will never need data enough to justify. My 2 cents: love it worth the upgrade.

    It blows my Mini away and now I have a bigger screen for movies and games etc.

    The weight and bigger size is EASILY tolerable.

    What is not to love? And no, I have do not have screen defects! :D

    Loving the Air. Everything about it is an improvement over previous gen's. One handed handling is a breeze and not uncomfortable. Battery life is great. Can't really say anything negative because it's awesome.

    Coming from a Mini to the Air was a much better jump than I thought it would be. The thinness and weight are so much better than I originally envisioned. Has to be held and used for a bit to really appreciate.

    I LOVE it!

    I love the big screen for videos and reading the newspaper and sheet music. I'm coming from a Mini and I adore the Retina and larger real estate. I'm a bit sorry that Next Issue has no Retina support as ease in reading magazines was another big reason I upgraded from the Mini, but at least the other magazines in Newsstand look pretty good on it.

    I am still using the Mini at the gym (easier to hold while on a bike) and for reading in bed, but otherwise the Air is now my go-to iPad.

    I'm going from a launch day iPad 2 16GB to my 32GB iPad air. So I have a whole lot more to see and love about the Air than most people. The size, the weight, retina, lightning, the speed. It's all a huge leap forward from what I was used to. That's the great thing about skipping generations.
