Apple has supermodel aspirations with its latest tablet.

It’s free! No, sorry, not the iPad Air but rather the now included iLife app suite, which includes perennial favorite GarageBand as well as iPhoto, iMovie, Pages, Numbers and Keynote.

Something familiar but no less welcome is the 9.7" Retina display screen, still boasting a 2048 x 1536 resolution at 264 ppi. Gone, however, are the thick bezels; these have been significantly trimmed to make the Air more compact.

Beating beneath its beautiful screen is an A7 chip with 64-bit architecture and M7 motion coprocessor, possibly transplanted from, if not inspired by, the iPhone.

Thinner than Kate Moss at her modeling career height, the iPad Air is a mere 7.5 mm, a whisper thinner than the iPhone 5s’ profile. Apple’s newest tablet barely registers on the scale at a mere 478 g.

As was the case on the now ancient and defunct (in certain Apple users’ terms) iPad 4 from last year (ugh), the latest iPad also goes up to 128 GB.

Worry not, a thinner and lighter profile doesn’t mean lesser battery life. Apple has reassured that the iPad Air will still offer up to 10 hours.
