I really don't understand the point of comparing the thickness of a device to another by putting one on top of the other. It makes no sense. The best way to compare thickness is to lay them side by side. This is a perfect example of what I'm talking about http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/15/3088889/13-inch-macbook-pro-retina-display-release-date-rumor Is there any reasoning behind this? It just makes no sense to me.
