If you’re not planning on traveling with a laptop, then bringing an iPad Air along is a great second option. It definitely makes sense if you’re already in the Apple ecosystem with an iPhone or Macbook. The Apple iPad Air includes all the refinement that you have come to expect from Apple. If you have an external keyboard you can even use it as a pseudo laptop. The long battery life also makes for a decent e-reader.
iPad Air brings more of our most powerful technologies to more people than ever. The A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. A 10.5‑inch Retina display with True Tone. Support for Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. And at just one pound and 6.1 mm thin, carrying all that power is effortless.
The iPad Air features a large 10.5‑inch Retina display, while remaining extremely portable and perfect for getting things done anywhere. It’s thin and light and has advanced wireless connectivity. And with up to 10 hours of battery life, iPad Air can go all day on a single charge.
