The iPad Air is Apple’s latest model and the company’s best ever. Most notably it’s 30 percent lighter, has a sharper display and runs faster. While you can pay less for a tablet, nothing matches its ease of use and the breadth of apps that are available for it. $499 for the 16GB version. (Spoiler alert — this is what I’m getting my wife!)
