Speaking of Fraser Speirs, he wrote up his new iPad Air and is impressed. 

"I don't want to bury the lede here: the major story about the iPad Air is not the reduction in size and weight but the increase in performance. It is, to put it simply, an utter delight to use. "

I've heard a similar version of this from all of my friends driving iPad Airs. What is even more interesting than how fast the A7 is making existing  apps, is what kind of new apps developers will create to harness this power.
