Ap­ple, from $ 579, ap­ple. com/ au THE iPad’s sec­ond coming cre­ated a yard­stick that the tablet mar­ket is find­ing hard to beat. Ap­ple’s up­dated slate com­puter comes with the same 9.7-inch screen as be­fore, but it has lost a lot of weight ( 117g) and some girth for easy travel. It is also sig­nif­i­cantly faster, thanks to a dual-core A5 pro­ces­sor. Cam­eras also fea­ture front and back with the rear snap­per ca­pa­ble of cap­tur­ing 720p high-def­i­ni­tion video, and hid­den mag­nets can be used to af­fix an added Ap­ple Smart Cover to the face of this ma­chine. On the down­side, the iPad 2 is still in­com­pat­i­ble with Adobe Flash and its rear cam­era has a res­o­lu­tion of less than one megapixel, giv­ing com­peti­tors some breath­ing space.
