That is a nice piece of hardware.
Plus.. you just can't beat the full version of Windows.

Intel Core i7 (7624) vs Apple A8X 1606
As you can see the Intel Core i7 processor destroys all ARM processors without even trying.

Didnt need a charge during a whole week... moreIt just says it lasted as long as his other iPads, thats only his subjective opinion and usage pattern isnt detailed. I think we can be sure that Air 2 will last shorter in games, higher FPS and all is good but generally shorter battery life. The 2GB RAM is also great but will undoubtedly drain a few mA more, next gen LPDDR RAM need to come out fast, its ok if it will cost a few dollars more if it makes a difference in battery.
The less reflective display will allow for lower brightness in many cases, that will help the battery a little for light tasks.

Apple didnt just raise the bar for tablets,s it took it and beat the crap out of the competition.
Wonder how this added performance will affect battery life, at 3 billions it has a lot more transistors than iPad Air, that sucks battery even when all cores are idle, and in addition Air 2 is slimmer.
Hysterically funny comments from fandroids, even saying iPad dont need this much performance ahahha. How efficent they are, grasping at straws and manages to look utterly and totally pathetic at the same time, thats good multitasking.
So whats the taste in the mouth from the tablet that was underpowered yesterday and wipes the floor with your useless Android tablets today? Stupid spec readers, even iPad Air wiped the floor with any Android tablet up to this day. You can get great specs in a Hyundai car but it still handles like a shoppingcart.
Reaper8, 22 Oct 2014Oh you done did it now boys... you wanted more cores? More performance?
The reviews are in,... moreMan, Apple smokes the competition.
That's.. kinda frightening just how good it is.
Apple has always been more about getting the best efficiency, meaning a good balance between performance and battery, in an optimized environment, but these performance figures are downright beastly!

Now Apple is superb with xender(for fast file sharing ). iOS is unbeatable.
EagleZero09, 22 Oct 2014snapdragon 810 is not out yet...S 810 is gonne be released in next october when A9X chips will be revealed.
A9X chips will be produced with 14 nm tech and just imagine tri-core of those on the same bed. just beast!!!
Snapdragon lost the game. I think even intel is about to lose
WHY? just compare i7 U-4500 with A8X in IPAD air 2 in geekbench website. Additionally, take into consideration the power consumptions of both SoCs.
Apple can do quadcore rather than tricore on new macbook air series. Belive me it would be better that the best of intels out there (silicone based)
Just perfect!!! well done apple!!!!
good job apple!!definitely getting one of those ipads :) proud owner of ipad 2
