iPad Air 2 Costs Just $399 For The Base Model – Not Bad For A Powerful Slate

Now carrying a price tag of $399 for the base model, Apple has presented a nice little price slash for the 9.7 inch slate and that is definitely a great deal for consumers looking to snare themselves a pretty powerful tablet. It definitely cannot overpower the 12.9 and 9.7 inch iPad Pro in terms of sheer processing power, but in terms of providing you with a near perfect and fluid experience, and that too for $399, this is a deal that you should definitely look into.

Incorporated with Apple’s powerful A8X SoC, the processor running inside is a triple-core 1.5GHz Typhoon CPU with a PowerVR GXA6850 graphics processor. There is also 2GB of RAM present inside the slate and the storage models that are currently available from Apple are divided into the 16, 64 and 128GB capacity models. This means that the 16GB model will carry a price of $399. If you are able to work your way through with smaller amounts of internal storage, then this is the tablet for you.


iPad Air 2 also features a 8MP rear camera sensor with an aperture of F/2.4. With the rear camera sensor, you will effortlessly be able to shoot 1080p videos at 30FPS, and record slow-mo videos at a resolution of 720p (frame rate will be 120FPS). For wireless connectivity, iPad Air 2 comes with a 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter, and a Bluetooth 4.0 module.
