Want to get your hands on the latest iPad Air or iPad Mini with Retina display? Well, we don’t have to wait anymore in Malaysia, as the fifth generation iPad tablet (named ‘iPad Air’) and iPad Mini with Retina display are now available in Malaysia.
The new iPads were originally announced by Apple at their October 2013 event. All the versions of the iPad Air, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, are available to buy in Malaysia. Local Apple resellers like EpiCenter, Switch and Machines have all released their pricing structure for the latest Apple iPad tablets. So if you want, be sure to check out their stores.
You can also visit the Apple Online Store Malaysia to learn more about the products and to purchase them online.

Both Space Gray and Silver color options are available for purchase. Also, looking at the prices, it is quite obvious the Air launch prices are much higher than that of the iPad 4. The iPad 4 128GB model was priced at RM2,399 when it was launched and the iPad Air 128GB model is now priced at RM,2579, which is almost RM200 more. However, this likely won’t deter the loyal Apple fans.
As reminder, the iPad with cellular functionality means you can connect to the internet with a data plan (e.g. mobile network), typically giving you more coverage and sometimes faster speed. For example, Maxis offers 4G LTE access in some areas, which is a very fast wireless internet connection.
