APPLE's revamped tablet line-up, including a high-definition "Retina" iPad Mini 2 and a slimmed-down, speeded-up iPad Air, has received an enthusiastic reception from the critics - and both models are now available to buy.

Overview of the new iPad models

The iPad Air, which Apple says is 20 per cent faster than its predecessor thanks to a new A7 chip, will be available in silver, white, 'space grey' and black. It has the same 9.7-inch screen as the iPad 4, which will no longer be available. The iPad Mini 2 also gets an A7 chip and it too now has a Retina display - Apple's term for its highest-definition screens. The previous generation of iPad Minis had less sharp displays. We can say without reservation that it absolutely rocks for watching HD movies even Blu-ray movies. 

Meanwhile, it is just in time for holiday shopping, and many Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Blu-rays are on Sale. During Thanksgiving, it would be a nice thing to watch Blu-ray movies with our families.
