So, my trusty 1st-gen iPad Air is starting to give up the ghost, and I’m looking at my options for a replacement. Looking at Apple’s refurb offerings, I’m kind of shocked at the price difference between the Airs and the standard iPad. The Airs are substantially more expensive.
The main reason I got the Air way back then was for the weight savings. At least back then, the difference was striking. Is the weight difference between Airs and not-Airs still as marked? How about performance differences between the two?
