Battle of the Ever-Slimming Gadgets: iPad 2 vs. MacBook Air 11-inch

We all know that the Macbook Air is incredibly thin. But the question is: how thin is it?
Statistically speaking, iPad 2 has a thickness of 8.8mm whereas the Air is 17mm at its thickest, and2.8 at its thinnest.
Now feast ye eyes on a couple of photos Taimur has snapped comparing iPad 2’s thickness to the 11-inch Macbook Air’s:

The Macbook Air definitely looks thinner… thanks to the tapering design Apple has used. But overall, iPad 2 obviously is more handy and portable to use when on-the-go.
