    Why would you want a thinner bezel on a 9.7" tablet? I doubt that it will make holding the iPad anymore comfortable, and then they RUINED the Smart Covers by removing the 4th fold. Good bye stability!

    Well, you have choices other than Apple... if you're so disappointed, I suggest you vote with your feet. And money. Spend it elsewhere...

    For one thing, a lighter iPad will be much more comfortable to hold for longer periods of time. As when watching YouTube videos, or reading books. I'm very happy with the new look. So much so that I'll gladly sell my iPad Mini for it. Which by the way is much lighter and thinner than the iPad 4, and yet I've had no "stability" issues with it during the whole year of using my Mini.

    Where did you get a promise never to come back. Don't read into things. I'm pissed about the the thinner bezel. I do think that the weight will be helpful while holding, the iPad 1 really weighs a lot. And with the bloody smart covers, I cant use it like a grip anymore because of the lack of the 4th segment

    What don't you like about it? I would think having a smaller bezel will also make things like viewing web content and videos more enjoyable.

    Hi all,
    I listen to the Imore podcasts and love them. This is my first time posting on the forums. I am so disappointed in the new ipad Air I just have to add my 2 cents about it. I currently have the ipad3 and I do a lot of video editing on it using Pinnacle Studio for the ipad. I also transfer a lot of files Back and forth between my ipad and my Apple Router Time Capsule HDD.
    First the reasons I am disappointed....
    1) a faster wireless, 2 Wireless-N channels but it is not full Wireless-AC. I thought since all the MacBooks got Wireless-AC the ipad would have also.
    2) the camera does not look like it has been updated or very little. I was hoping for the 120FPS shooting mode.
    3) no mention on if there is an upgrade in Ram. This probably means the answer is no. And what exactly is the amount of Ram.i think it might be 1GB but not sure.
    4) No mention if ios7 can do the memory compression thing talked about in Mavericks for the MacBooks.
    5) no Fingerprint scanner. I have so many places on the net that I have to log into I hate it. The Fingerprint scanner works great on my ipone5s. I can't wait for the day when I can just use my Fingerprint to access my Keychain and not have to enter another password again. What a time saver. And I get really frustrated when I have to enter a password sometimes 4 or 5 time to log into a site. Or even sometimes I have to reset my password even though I know it is correct. Very frustrating. The fingerprint scanner could eliminate all this hassle.
    Now to the reasons to upgrade.
    1) my sister gets a newer ipad. I give her my old one.
    2) the A7 and M7 chips. For an app like Pinnacle Studio this should make the app run that much smother.
    3) I just recently got the new Apple Wireless-AC TIME Capsule router and I am getting about 20% increase in speed using my ipad3. So this means at least another 20% or greater increase in speed. That not to bad. Probably not as nice. Speed increase if it has true wireless-AC.
    4) I need the 128GB or storage space.

    I love the design of my ipad3. I don't think it is to heavy to hold in one hand. I am holding it in one hand now as I type. For those that want to be lying in bed reading, etc. you guys should get an ipad mini. I think the ipad mini is perfect for that use. I watch Netflix on my ipad in bed. I just place my ipad in my Zagg keyboard case and set it on my nightstand. Works great. And plug in my external speakers.
    I would have rather had Apple just take the same form factor and just add more stuff in the ipad such as the above for mentioned items and a mini usb3 port so I could finally hook up an External HDD.
    Apple also did not mention the Stereo Speaker or did I miss that part.

    My third gen iPad fell and busted my lip while reading. Yeah, Ill take a lighter one. Plus the iPad minis ability to recognise unwanted touch when holding works fine, why wouldnt it on the Air?

    I'm not disappointed. I would have liked to see touch ID and maybe gold. :-).

    I still can't justify getting iPad Air because of just getting the 5S. I got to try out G Band on the iPhone 5s to see how good it is on the A7 to get a feel for it on iPad Air. I know it's gonna rock.

    Damn I feel like Pookie from New Jack City. That **** be calling man. It be calling me.

    The only thing I would have liked to see on the iPad Air is the Touch ID. At first I didn't use it on my iPhone 5S but I an now using it and it is almost as good as "sliced bread." I like the addition of more LTE channels. The 64 bit processor and motion co-processor should really speed up some APPs I use. the slightly smaller size and .5 pound less in weight would not make a big difference to me. Just means I will have to bye a new case. I'll be in line at my local Apple store @ 6:00 AM on Nov. 1st.

    Back the truck up there Bozo ( <=== THAT was snarky - see what I did? Made a clown reference to a clownish statement).

    It’s neither rude nor snarky to tell someone to vote with their wallet. Frankly, it’s pure common sense. Why be forced into a platform that doesn’t work for you. It’s your money (in this case, it’s the OP's money) and you/he should purchase what works for you/him.

    Clearly the OP was not happy with an Apple product or choice, so the smart thing to do would be to take your money to the platform that works for your particular situation.

    What's rude, snarky, or uncivil about a suggestion to a user to find something that pleases them? Were I not happy with something, I'd heed my own advice, and the last thing I'd do is to come to a place like this and whine about being unhappy. Sorry if that offends your sensibilities...

    But explain the problem of having a big thumbs/thin bezel combo. I'm not trying to be snarky or anything. I'm honestly trying to understand what your problem is with that.
