Where exactly does the new MBA bring the Ipad together with the Macbook? The two most defining aspects of the Ipad are the touchscreen and the reader like handling. The MBA offers neither. If the MBA would allow to flip the screen completely over to get a reader like form factor and then control things via multitouch, then it would have brought the Ipad to the Macbook and I would be very temped to buy one. This way I will just wait until the Ipad comes with a higher resolution screen some day in the future.
