The 9.7-inch screen itself supports a Retina display that packs a resolution of 2048×1536. It’s powered by Apple’s still-impressive A9X chip, and it comes with a 12MP rear camera that can shoot video in 4K. It’s powerful and compact, which makes it a welcome device to bring along for both work and play while you’re on the road. Generally, you’ll get about 10 hours of battery life out of it. You’ll also love the built-in cellular connectivity if you need constant access to your work on the go.
In our review, we said it “hits the sweet spot between size and price,” and that’s even truer now that deals like this are on the market. We pointed out that it used less RAM than its larger cousin, but we also noticed that this difference barely seemed to affect the battery life.
