Faster processor, much faster graphics, Touch ID, and the best part of all, it comes in GOLD!

Seems like an iterative update and not revolutionary but is a good upgrade from my old iPad 3.

I pre-ordered mine Friday (64gb, 4G LTE). I'm giving my "old" iPod Air to a relative. This will be my first 4G device.

My iPad 3 is a bit sluggish, but I am not sure I am replacing it now. An iPad 2 would be out the door due to lack of retina display.

When you get your new iPad Air's just don't do the bend test.

I bit yesterday and got a 128GB Air 2 WiFi (have a hotspot throug my iPhone 6 Plus on Verizon).

Colors are better, but resolution isn't. Performance improvements over the iPad 3 are obvious, but not crucial.

I don't know what fool would even attempt the above.

iPads and iPods have been very reliable from the beginning, and a lot of people feel that there is not need to fix something that's not broken. I still have a second generation iPod Touch. It has Wi-Fi, but that's it. Use it everyday to play music through a powered speaker (Tango TRX), and my wife still has a very old iPod with the "click wheel." Never had a single problem with then.

Yeah, me too. The first time I saw that I couldn't believe someone would just destroy a nice iPad like that. As an "eGeek" the sight of destroying a new device like that made me cringe. I guess some people just have that kind of money to just throw in the trash. LOL

I had a first gen iPod touch go into a lake in my swimsuit for ten minutes back in 2009. It survived and worked completlely fine after a bit. My iPad 3 has profound damage, but with a glass replacement, works fine.
