In the Box

True to Apple's brand reputation, the box of the iPad is minimalistic, as is what comes in it. Inside, you will find your tablet, an interface cable, and a wall charger. Aside from a small amount of documentation, that's it.

Handling

The new iPad is heavy compared to its predecessors, and if you're going to be using this thing for a long period of time, you may have a little bit of arm fatigue. The rounded edges fit well in the contour of the hand, and the added millimeter of thickness doesn't feel all that different. After a while, you'll start to notice that the iPad is getting warm; like, really warm. This isn't just your model, all of them seem to do this. We suggest getting a case with a stand.
