That didn’t take long. Apple didn’t send out a bunch of gadgets to tech blogs hoping they’d review it, so to have such a comprehensive review on launch day is pretty strong.
When I grabbedÂ the iPad Air, I wanted to juggle it. So I did. I threw it up in the air a bunch of times, like you do with a giggling baby. I did so gingerly, like you do with a giggling baby, but it’s the first 10-inch tablet that feels effortless.
The Air’s weight is its killer app. You can’t see this. You have to feel it. At just 1 pound, it comes very close to the tablet ideal of a magical sheet of paper: thin, durable, easy to hold in one hand or two for as long as you want.
