Earlier today Apple released the latest generation of its tablets that are now both equipped with retina displays.

Surprisingly, Apple’s new full-size tablet isn’t called the iPad 5. Instead, the Cupertino company brought over the Air branding from its MacBook line to its tablet and gave us the iPad Air. As we all know, the MacBook Air was one of the devices that revolutionised the notebook industry with its super slim profile, which was later on adopted by Windows-based devices to bring about the Ultrabook generation of laptops.

So it appears that Apple is trying out the same strategy with the iPad Air. But does the same formula that made the MacBook Air a success also applies to the iPad? Well, here are two things to consider.

Design and Construction. For starters, the design of the iPad Air is really its main selling point. In contrast to its predecessor, the new iPad Air is undeniably thinner and lighter. It also has a smaller bezel, which certainly adds to the sleekness of the device.
