iPad 2: Faster, Lighter & Thinner

The Mac Observer
25 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Apple has done a great job of taking what was already a compelling product and making it even more enticing in its second generation version. If you skipped the original iPad, the iPad 2 is a great place to get in on the tablet action.
  • Pros: Better performance and graphics, thinner, more comfortable to hold, video mirroring.
  • Cons: Poor camera quality, tapered edges make ports and buttons difficult to use.

Apple iPad 2

ITP.net
9 June 2011
  • Summary: Verdict: If you already own the original iPad there’s little reason to splurge on the latest. While the cameras bring new functionality, the results as far as the rear camera is concerned, are basic.
  • Pros: More horsepower under the hood, slightly lighter, looks and feels great, battery life is still brilliant.
  • Cons: Rear-facing camera offers basic results.

  • Conclusion: In some ways, this new edition of the iPad is a subtle refinement, in other ways a drastic expansion of its functionality and its very intent, allowing us to create and communicate with technology which simply was not available in the initial effort.

  • Conclusion: As much as Apple touts its wonderfully new slimmer design, which we openly agree as being eye catching, one of the most alluring things about the iPad 2 is its spot on pricing. At $500 for the entry-level model, you’re presented with a fantastic looking tablet that’s filled with plenty of goodies to...
  • Pros: Impressive thin profile, Fast performance with its A5 processor, Enabled for video chat, Solid price point

The iPad 2 Review

Maclife
14 March 2011
  • Conclusion: With properly calibrated expectations--think minor refresh, rather than next generation--the iPad 2 continues Apple’s reign as the king of tablets. If you haven’t bought one yet, the iPad 2 is a stellar device that still feels like a little slice of science fiction come true.
  • Pros: New A5 chip and RAM significantly improve overall performance, and gaming in particular. Dual cameras work fine for video calls. Thinner, lighter unibody looks slick and makes the iPad more comfortable to use. Video mirroring adds “teaching and presentation tool” to the iPad’s list of many useful...
  • Cons: No transformative new features. Display is unchanged, so it still isn’t usable in bright sunlight and attracts lots of smudgy fingerprints. Cameras yield poor, low-res photos. Using cameras is often difficult and requires awkward grip. No support for 4G cellular data. Still no expansion ports.

LAPTOP Magazine
9 March 2011
  • Summary: The camera quality isn't great, and there's no 4G data or mobile hotspot feature. At the same time, Android 3.0 tablets such as the Motorola Xoom do a better job with multitasking and notifications.
