The 13" MacBook Air has a 12 hours battery life, while the iPad Air has a 10 hours battery. So, except for the obvious – the price –, what makes the iPad a better choice over a full featured computer with superior battery life? I remember that a few years ago the new tablet party made sense, since the 10 hours battery vs the 5 hours batteries found on most laptops was a pretty big deal. But now the story is different. Shamelessly, Apple has kept the same battery life on the iPad since its very first release in 2010. So again, what's the point? Cheers.
