Engadget Review

The iPad Air 2 is Apple's most powerful tablet yet, and is incredibly thin and light. It's a solid upgrade over last year's Air, and should definitely be one of your top tablet considerations.

With the inclusion of Touch ID, 2GB of RAM, the power of A8x, and 802.11ac w/mimo, this is a solid upgrade that propels iPad into the future. It's absolutely beautiful. It's like holding a display and nothing more. Everything about it is a dream, including the fact we get double the storage for the same price as last year.
