Sorry, but the difference between a MBPro and an Air is several pounds, not a few ounces.  One is a relevant difference, one isn't - I'm just not feeling it, that anyone is forced, with no alternative, to hold an iPad long enough to be a discomfort.   The one comparison I will give you is, that a medical professional, for example, would probably find a smaller device easier to work around, but, without knowing how many enterprise uses this would apply to, its still...
Not to be argumentative, but I just don't see people staggering around under the oppressive weight of their iPads.     I think the current design is light enough for comfortable one-handed use, and will, itself, only get lighter.   So, inconvenient heft isn't the reason for a smaller iPad, I don't think...if it were, wouldn't nearly all the people who opt for other tablets opt for the smaller sizes?   Come to think of it, I'm not sure what the reason is, unless it was...
  Well, I think you sort of countered your own point right there.   The Air was the appropriate name for that product, to differentiate it from other laptops, which were so much heavier at that time.   In the case of iPad, its weight has never been a weakness, so touting the iPad mini in that respect doesn't stress its improvement, or anything unique about it.   I always also sort of thought that the "Air" designation, aside from weight, was intended to mark its departure...

Did you actually just copy your own post, and then describe it as "brilliant"??? Strange way to pump up your post number...
By "we" I think he meant the industry as a whole, not just Apple. And he also said it would cost the same to build shit or beauty, so, let's do beauty.   Its like taking the stealing quote out of context, as an apology/rationalization for Samsung copying... gotta take the whole idea, not the bit that supports your point.   Sorry, if I misapprehended why you quoted this "bit".
That's why it took them 25 years... They wanted to get the snores just right!
To be fair, a square is an equilateral rectangle...
Well, that nails it down!  Now the Surface is sure to be perfect!!!   (oops, should have caught and corrected "Slate" way quicker...well, I knew what I meant anyway!)
