    Do I buy the IPad Air 2 64gb for 599 or the IPad Air 32gb for 399? I know it may be somewhat subjective but do those of you who have or have had both think the extra 200 would be well spent?

    I think it would be better to get the Air 2. It has a much faster processor, has better cameras (comparable to the iPhone 5), and has 2 GB of RAM, which for most people is enough reason to buy it. I have the Air 2, upgraded from an iPad Mini with Retina Display, and I think it is worth the upgrade.

    I just bought the iPad Air and honestly i am happy with it. It's really fast and camera is pretty awesome and apps and videos load pretty fast in my opinion I think the differance between the two is the processor and touch id and improved camera but from the iPad Air your still getting everything from apples second best tablet plus you will save 200$

    2 gb of ram is enough of a reason to get the air 2. Also he gets double the space

    Well, for double the storage, plus 2 GB of RAM, along with a more powerful processor and less reflective display, I feel that the Air 2 would be worth the extra $200.

    Depends on what you want it for, in my opinion. If high-end games then go for iPad Air 2. If for internet browsing, reading and today standard games save money.

    If I was purchasing an iPad at the moment I would be buying the iPad Air 2 and not the original. You will be future proofed for much longer by getting the 2.

    Yeah for now but I would think the 6s will have 2gb of ram and iOS 10 should be optimized for that

    Yeah but iOS 10 would be probably in two years time and considering the fresh releases are not stable he would be waiting until 10.1.x to get the most stable system so that's even 2,5 year. If I would be short on cash I would go for the iPad Air original one and if I would just look at it as a snob I would definitely buy the 2nd generation. Considering that Apple 'upgraded' the iPad Mini 3 only with the TouchID leaving it with the last year processor it shouldn't be that bad (owner of original iPad Air) Furthermore, battery of the original iPad is far more superior.

    It's because it really needed it according to the ones who had to live with the iPad Air constant reloads. Basically they say it almost had no multitasking at all.

    Also,it is the first iOS device ever with 2GB of ram. Surely this iPad marks the beginning of something extra for iPads. Not sure if it is iOS features or upcoming apps that require higher specs.

    Nobody wants a gold iPad. That's why yours isn't on back order.
