After ripping open the packaging to the Apple iPad (4th Gen.) like a kid at your winter holiday of choice, you'll not only find a tablet, but a USB to Lightning cable, a wall charger, and assorted documentation.

Handling

For those of you that haven't used or owned an iPad before, the first thing you'll notice about holding one is the weight. A bit on the hefty side, the Apple iPad (4th Gen.) can cause fatigue over long periods of time, but it could be a lot worse. The edges of the casing are rounded to a degree to fit the crook of your hand without digging into it too much, and it doesn't put focused pressure on the softer parts of your hand. Due to the weight, it's difficult to hold with one hand for any extended period of time, so avoid this if possible.
