Do you guys feel the difference?
They feel about the same to me.
Lol, what have you been smoking?
It's about the same difference in weight between an iPad air and a retina iPad mini. So the difference is fairly significant.
I have one in each hand... Not as significant as I expected
Objectively: 135 grams or 4.75 ounces or 27 nickels
Subjectively: I have both and find the 2 to be bulky and much heaver feeling than the Air.
Hood the iPad 2/3 on one hand and the iPad air in the other. There is a very noticeable difference.
We have a 2, a 3 and an iPad Air in the house and in can definitely feel the weight differences between all three. Especially when I'm carrying the Air around in my bag.
Even when it's in my case, the Air feels quite a bit lighter than my 2. It's rather dramatic, IMO.
I dont even want to use my iPad 4 anymore, its "so heavy" compared to the air. Much like my older iPad 1 to the 4. Night and day.
Just show how differently people "perceive" things.
Still not feel the difference.
The mini is a lot lighter than both ipad 2 and ipad air
...And the Air is a lot lighter than the iPad 2.
I wonder how much of the perceived weight difference is due to the thickness and knowledge of which one you are holding. Blind test time.
That would be because of ipad 2's volume
I know what you mean. Personally, I can feel that it's lighter, but I am not sure that it is $600 lighter . . .
Air is 22% lighter than the iPad 2.
rMini is 29% lighter than the Air.
(Who knew any electronic device could be "lighter than air"?)
The OP was probably holding the iPad 2 on his stronger side.
i guess what i am trying to say is that the difference is not that big. not as dramatic as Apple advertised.
They advertised it as 28% lighter, and guess what.... it's 28% lighter.
I fail to see how they are being overdramatic when advertising it.
To be honest I don't really feel the difference. Now from an ipad 2 to a mini...
...and the iPhone is a lot lighter than mini.
It feel as twice lighter to me.
Agreed. I thought the same thing when I compared them.
I'm not sure why some of you can't tell much of a difference. Maybe it's time to get a "powers of perception" checkup
I've had every iPad except the 4 and have a 2 and 3 and Air in the house right now. The difference in weight between the 2 and the air is quite significant, in fact I would just stop short of saying it's dramatic.
I never get tired of holding the Air in one hand or feel like it's digging into my leg when I have it propped up. It feels like a whole other class of device to me.
