The Apple Ipad beats all of the other company tabs available on the worldwide market today.The features are awesome and its ios 7 makes it very beautiful the displays are beatiful as I expected.It takes alot of time to charge but has a good battery life.I use this thing more than my laptop.The design is very impressive and I really like the APPLE logo on the backside of the screen.I bought this thing in 2010 and still using it.I JUST LOVE MY IPAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very good entertainment/email/internet tablet but not so good for productivity. Tends to get warm/hot.
