User Reviews 1 User Reviews I was surprised by how fast and responsive it felt for basic tasks like launching apps and animations. Overall, while it lacks some bells and whistles of the Pro like a laminated display and 4 speakers, Everything Apple Pro felt it does everything you need in a basic iPad for media consumption and light usage at a great price point.

Apple recently released an updated 9.7-inch iPad model for 2017. This new budget-friendly iPad delivers strong performance and features at an appealing price point.

While it lacks some of the premium capabilities of the iPad Pro line, the new iPad handles everyday tasks smoothly and responsively. 

Independent reviewers found the A9 chip provides plenty of processing power, scoring only around 15-20% slower than the iPad Pro CPU. 

The GPU trails the Pro by about 30% in graphics performance. 

Still, the 2017 iPad runs iOS 10 fluidly and proves speedy at launching apps, web browsing, light multitasking, and basic animation. 

It can even edit and export 4K video thanks to the capable A9 chip.

The affordable model also touts excellent battery life to keep you powered up on the go. 

And it conveniently retains Touch ID for quick unlocking and Apple Pay purchases. 

The 7.5mm thin iPad is easy to grab and fits nicely in bags. It feels light at just over 1 pound in weight.

On the downside, cost-cutting is evident in a few areas. The display lacks lamination, so a visible gap exists between the cover glass and LCD. 

This diminishes the premium look and feel when touching the screen. Viewing angles also suffer a bit, causing occasional washout in bright ambient light. 

Furthermore, the tablet makes do with a dated first-generation Touch ID sensor and skips the four-speaker audio of pricier iPads.

What's impressive is how few concessions Apple made with their affordable 2017 tablet revamp. Performance, battery life, camera quality, and ecosystem integration remain solid. 

There’s simply no better tablet value today for basic gaming, web surfing, video/music playback, e-reading, and communication needs.

So if you're seeking an iPad on a budget, don't require cutting-edge features, and value responsiveness over raw horsepower, Apple's newest 9.7-inch model is a compelling choice. 

It retains enough speed and functionality to satisfy most mainstream users. 

Power users seeking maximum multitasking muscle and a premium feel will still prefer the iPad Pro. 

But everyday tablet shoppers get a strong blend of value and capability with Apple's reasonably-priced iPad 2017 release.
