    I had planned to. But the other half put a stop to that!

    "Yours still works fine! Why waste the money!"

    So for now, I'm still rocking the original Air. She did however green light me getting a new MacBook, if I give my old MacBook Pro to her to replace her aging Dell. So I might start MacBook shopping sooner than I thought

    I'm considering it, was actually at the Apple Store today checking it out. I've been using an iPad mini 2 since it first came out and have lately been thinking about going back to a standard sized iPad. Really like the 9.7" Pro, but find it hard to justify the price the way I use a tablet. The new iPad it may be perfect for me...the cheaper price lets me put the money saved towards a MacBook Pro, which I've also been eyeing.

    Think I will stick with my Air 2. There's not much of a difference really apart from the processor bump. It's a great price for someone looking to buy their first iPad though..

    back when the Minis came out they were smaller and lighter. Now they are just smaller but weight is a lot more comparable!

    I'm sticking with my Air 2. The new iPad may have a slightly better processor, but that's about it. For all intensive purposes, they could've called it iPad SE.

    Got one. I'll never hear the end of it, but I figured it like this:

    If I could add another year of AppleCare to my nearly 4 year old iPad Air, would I? If I could also toss in another $50-$100, and get it refurbished to brand new condition, upgrade the screen, camera, and processor, and add Touch ID...? Well, trading in my iPad Air for $150 towards a $329 new iPad is basically that. Brand new, year of warranty, and all the upgrades, for $179 out of pocket.

    Plus I switched from Silver to Space Grey.

    I need the Apple Pencil so the 9.7 pro is good for me and it's all around better for me

    I picked one up Friday for a birthday present for my daughter next weekend. Replaces a first generation iPad. (Still amazed that thing has lasted this long.) I'll let you know my thoughts after I unbox and set it up next weekend.

    Not getting it. My 12.9" pro is just what I need right now. Hubby may want to upgrade his Air though.

    iPads will generally take longer due to the size of the battery. Also be sure you're using the larger adapter that [probably] came with it, not the smaller iPhone adapter/wall plug.

    Well looks like Best Buy will give me $60 for the aging iPad 2 and I can use BB store credit I can earn through a work program, so I'm definitely going to get one.

    I always use the charger electronicsā€‹come with but just wondering if it took 3 hours or even longer or shorter.

    It wouldn't surprise me to be 3 hours particularly if the battery was low. It's a much larger battery than the phone I haven't timed mine but I know it's longer.

    Finally getting comfortable with the 2017 iPad. Just received and applied a Tech Armor Ballistic Glass screen protector, and I'm reusing my old iPad Air Smart Cover until more 2017 iPad cases are released (come on UAG!)

    Did you happen to notice if the screen protector design is the same for the new one as it was for your Air?

    Yes it's exactly the same. The protector I bought says it's for the iPad Air & Air 2 on the packaging, but fits the 2017 iPad perfect.
