    +1. I am so use to the Mini handling it every which way daily for reading, web browsing, games, etc and really appreciating the weight.

    In 1/2 hour's time, I love the Air's form facor as it is easy hitting the sweetspot amongst larger tablets. So light and I can easy palm it one handed and I do not feel I will get tired holding it or being uncomfortable with it! It is bigger and heavier than the Mini obviously but it is still great.

    Kudos to Apple!

    Its like Apple was listening to my needs. I was missing the big screen. However, the weight was more than I would tolerate.

    How light does it feel? Mark Gurman from 9to5Mac tweeted that it felt heavier than the reviews stated. But it's hard to know when he's being serious or just posting something to get retweets.

    It was light as heck. It feels like a big mini. I can hold it with one hand easily.

    Yeah screen is big and clear, meanwhile the chassis is thin and light.

    It must be really tiring being an Apple hater when they keep knocking out quality products like this :D

    Yes, it feels like a big mini.

    So far, no case for me... but time will tell.

    How light is it? Light enough that I noticed it immediately when handed the box at the Apple store. The same can also be said about the Smart Cover. Yea, the smart cover feels less rugged now that they got rid of the aluminum hinge, but man, the combination of the 2 is the optimal weight.

    And don't forget the compactness of it now. For it to lose of its width, its soooo much easier now to type on screen in portrait mode. Its almost like the ipad went to bootcamp and lost its love handles:p

    If the iPad Air is a person, this guy's in its primal shape and weight now. Go Apple and iPad Air:)

    My feelings exactly. They have the same size screen but with the decreased bevels, it feels like a slightly larger mini.

    The combination of weight and size reduction has an huge impact. Honestly love it more than I thought I would.
