Review: Technology - Apple iPad (2012)

It’s also about 50g heavier than the previous version, mostly because it needs a larger battery to maintain its 10-hour battery life. Smartly, Apple is keeping the previous iPad 2 model alive with a cheaper $429 price, although some stores have it for $399 – pretty decent value. However, be aware that these cheaper models have only 16GB of storage and it’s not expandable on any model. You can plug in headphones and a digital AV adapter ($45) to connect it straight to your big-screen TV’s HDMI input, but that’s about it. Still, the new screen is the best looking one going around.
