  • The iPad Air shares the iPad mini’s design, and looks more modern than the now-dated iPad 2. The Air is smaller and lighter – 478g versus 613g – and has a thinner bezel. the iPad 2’s A5 processor is around 4x slower by Apple’s own admission. Graphics performance is 8x slower, meaning that the latest apps don’t run as well or look as good as on the iPad Air. Overall I would suggest save up longer and go for the air - the iPad 2 pales in comparison with the iPad Air in every respect save for battery life. Its screen, cameras and performance are all significantly worse.
