The iPad Air is slimmed down quite a bit from it's predecessor, the iPad 4, but just how much? We've snapped a few quick images of the two side-by-side, and as you'll see there is a noticeable difference.

Holding one in each hand with your eyes closed, it's real easy to tell the difference.

We'll be back with more images, videos, and of course a full review of the iPad Air in the coming days. Seeing the size difference for yourself, does this make you any more or less convinced this might be the iPad for you? Click on down a little further for some more images.
