iPad Air is thinner, lighter, and smaller than the iPad 4 it replaces, while retaining the full 9.7-inch display typical to full-size iPad tablets. It’s also getting rave early reviews on social media.

Apple announced it along with the new iPad Mini – the first with a Retina screen — and a new Mac Pro as well as new MacBook Pro laptops. All will come with the full iLife and iWork suite for free.
