Firm sent me to training last week.

Free iPad Air 16gb wifi came with it.

I'd say that's a good deal.

Can you tell a big difference from your older model in terms of speed and weight?  I always figured I'd upgrade at some point.

This is my first ipad and it's way faster and lighter then my last.

Wait.

But seriously, I've never owned one, only used other folks' from time to time so, while part of me thinks that it knows the thing is lighter, rational brain knows that I can't really tell the difference without a head-to-head check.

I'd wait.  I have an ipad2 and an iPad Air from work (32gb).  It's nice that it's lighter and the display is better but they haven't improved the device substantially.

Ha, yeah, well, I'd say that qualifies.

Antelope, I am with Matt, I am holding out as well. I've messed around with some Air's which my fellow nurses have brought to work, and I am not all that blown away. They are lighter, but my "New" iPad Retina's weight has never really bogged me down.

I have a feeling I'll be buying mini 2's with retina for my daughters before I get a new one of my own.

Anyone out there still using an iPad 2? If so, what version of iOS do you have on it? I've been hesitant to upgrade past 7.x for a couple years now, on account of not wanting to cripple the thing, but I'm now finding that a lot of the apps I want to use these days require 8 or even 9. Reports out there indicate poor performance by those versions on this model. I'd be interested to hear of any first-hand experiences.

Running the latest 9 on mine, which is really just my daughter's iPad at this point - it works fine for Youtube and her toddler games/apps, really no problem with almost anything I throw at it.  If I were using it as my daily, I'm sure I'd have a problem with it being laggy, but I don't really notice much, though in fairness, I have nearly all notifications and other features turned OFF!

Same here. Running 9 and I use it the thing everyday. It is slower than it used to be, but nothing crazy.
