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.

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.

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"?)

maybe.

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.

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 :D

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.
