4An iPad for doing all the things you love
By Jay
Apple recently unveiled the 2017 iPad at an affordable price of $329. Compared to the original iPad price of $499, this seems to be a steal. But is this worth it?

Design: If you've ever held an iPad, you know the design. It is lightweight, with rounded edges, and will fit in your hand like a small magazine. Just some numbers here, the 2017 iPad is slightly thicker than the iPad Air 2 (you won't notice the difference when using it). It has a gorgeous display, though, if you try hard enough, you'll notice that the display feels like it is sitting behind a sheet of glass. This is because it is not laminated, which the iPad Air 2 and iPad Pros have. Will this disturb your viewing experience? Highly unlikely. There are 2 speakers on the bottom, and you get the home button with the integrated fingerprint sensor. Overall, the design is very similar to the first iPad Air that came out a couple of years ago.

Function: While it has the body of an older generation iPad, the computing power inside is much faster. The processor that drives this iPad is an A9 chip, and this is faster than the A8x that comes in the iPad Air 2. It has a 64-bit architecture, which is nerd-speak for "future proof" (Apple's newer iOS will mainly focus on 64 bit processors, making older iPads more obsolete since many 3rd party apps will no longer be supported). Watching movies, reading books, viewing webpages will feel like a breeze.

Who is this for: Those who 1) never had an iPad before, or 2) have an iPad 1-4 and want to upgrade, or 3) don't plan on using this to replace their laptop (it can be done, but the OS is not there yet), or 4) students who want a way to digitize their books on the cheap (while $329 is by no means cheap, if you look at the long term value of this iPad, it is much better than the Android competitors). If you have an iPad Air or Air 2 or iPad Pro 9.7, there is absolutely no need to upgrade.

Competition: At this price range, for the performance, there is not that much competition. You might go for one of the Samsung Galaxy A or E tablet series, which are usually around $200 range. But those will not last more than 1-2 years and are much slower to begin with. The other piece of this is the app store. Android is almost on par with Apple now, but the Apple App Store still gets the newest apps and the most attention from developers.

Final thoughts: The 2017 iPad is great for doing the things that bigger tablets are good at: reading, watching, browsing. This is not meant to be a workhorse, not because it's not powerful but because the iOS lacks a real file explorer and mouse input. If you intend on just sending emails as part of your workflow, then this should work (as long as you don't need to have too many attachments). Customers have come to love the iPad because it is so good at doing the few things that people want: reading, watching, browsing-- media consumption. It has a long battery life and a gorgeous screen. The only reason why I deducted 1 star is because of the price. $329 is a great price on paper for an iPad because Apple has conditioned us to think that an iPad should be at least $499 (or $399 for the iPad 4 last year). However, when you realize that this is a thicker iPad (with no significant improvements in the battery life dept) with older display technology (non-laminated screen), the price seems to be a tad on the high side. Apple is a master at supply chain and manufacturing, and using older technology and more forgiving designs should lead to less manufacturing cost, which further maximize the profit margins a bit. Given that many retailers cleared their iPad Air 2 inventories at $280-299 over the past few months, I believe the new iPad 2017 should've started at $299 instead. $29 may not seem like much, but a lot of people love Apple's own accessories, and those certainly have also increased in price over the past two years. This is probably a moot point. Overall, if you get this iPad, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Feel free to ask me any questions that you may have.

5Great iPad for those on a budget, still is everything awesome you expect from iPad!
By Matt Ontiveros
This is truly a fantastic iPad for the money. I was skeptical when comparing to the iPad Pro model. There are certain differences but if you can get passed aesthetics, this is most likely the iPad for you. Let's address what it doesn't do/have. It does not have the fully laminated display so there is a slight airgap between the glass the the display. This also means the display does not have the anti-glare coating. It has the A9 vs A9X chip. It has dual speakers on the bottom and not quad stereo speakers like on the Pro. It also does not have the smart connector for utilizing Apple's new Smart Cover Keyboard, and is not compatible with Apple Pencil. Other than that, I don't think you can beat this value.

If you are upgrading from an iPad 3 like I am, this thing is lightening quick! Even though its slightly heavier than the iPad Pro or Air models, its still a light device, coming in at just under 1 pound. It is no strain to hold it for any matter of time. The screen is bight and crisp. Apps open, close, and run flawlessly. One thing I noticed is any app that requires internet is now blazing fast! Safari, YouTube, Netflix, and others are so much faster than previous models. iOS10 and using the multi-app split screen feature is great too! The camera is eh, but I never intended on taking pictures with this anyway.

If you are into graphic design, and you have to have the smart keyboard, get the Pro. If you like an easy touch interface for web browsing, YouTube, basic photo and video editing, and playing music, get this new one. I've been hands on the with Pro, and while I did appreciate the better camera and stereo speakers, if I'm not going to use them I don't need to pay for them. Also, inside your home or office, this iPad's sound output will be plenty loud to enjoy whatever you are listening too. I purchased the 128 GB model and count not happier.

Great value and a definite buy if looking to upgrade and on a budget!

4Nice price but with compromise
By J
The good news is that the iPad is now more affordable. The bad news is that it comes at a cost. In a nutshell, the iPad Pro is now pretty much the old iPad as far as features. The new iPad looks identical to the Pro at first glance but the compromises become evident immediately. The first is the thickness and weight. This iPad is closer to the Air 1 than the Air 2 as far as thickness. Speaking of the Air 1, this iPad has the same non-laminated screen found on the Air 1 which gives it more of a cheap plastic feel. The screen is also not laminated, so reflections will be more noticeable in certain situations. The quality of the screen is also a roll of the dice. I had to return the first 2017 iPad I purchased because the screen quality was abysmal with severe back-light bleeding along the edges. I included a photo. The 2017 iPad is on the left and an Air 2 on the right. Both have back-light bleed but the 2017 is much more pronounced. Imagine trying to watch a movie with dark scenery on that ugly screen. The replacement was much better with minimal bleed, like the Air 2. The color saturation and temperature on the 2017 iPad are also not as nice as the iPad Pro (with True Tone disabled). The 2017 is noticeably warmer and dimmer than both the Pro and Air 2. Performance is good compared to the Air 2 but once again, lags behind the Pro. However, you'd be hard pressed to notice in most real-world situations. I had a 12.9 pro and it didn't seem blazing fast compared to the 2017 iPad.

The 2017 iPad is not a bad tablet. In fact, it's a very nice tablet. It's just not as nice as the Pro or even the Air 2. However, it is absolutely a bargain at a starting price of $329. Even the $429 128GB version is still a bargain and offers enormous storage capacity to boot. If you don't have an iPad or your iPad is an original Air or older, I'd say go for it. If you have an Air 2, especially 64GB or higher, and are looking to upgrade, I'd be a little reluctant to advise upgrading to this particular model. I'd advise either going with the Pro or wait to see what 2018 offers. Going from the Air 2 to this is an upgrade in some areas, such as processor speed, but a downgrade in others, like weight and screen quality.
