In response to this, Apple released its latest iPad (simply called “iPad”) in early 2017 with an entry-level price to spur new interest. The new iPad looks, feels and runs like most other iPads, except it doesn’t have all the coolest high-end features that the iPad Pro models have. (But since this is much less expensive, that shouldn’t be surprising.) This model has a 9.7-inch screen with 2,048 x 1,536 resolution and weighs just over a pound. Inside, the new iPad has an A9 processor with 64-bit architecture, 2GB of RAM, an eight-megapixel camera on back, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a battery that claims to give 10 hours of active usage. You can purchase this model in silver, gold and space gray and it offers either 32GB or 128GB of storage, depending on your needs.

Hitachi's ultra-short throw projectors have always been impressive, so it's no surprise that the CP-A221N ($1,300 street) carries on in that tradition. It can throw a big, bright image onto a screen only a few inches away; it delivers high quality data images and better than par video for an XGA data projector; and it goes beyond the basics, including features like the ability to mount it facing straight down to give you a tabletop display.
