The new iPad now exceeds the total display resolution, has similar speed and storage capacity while having twice the battery life of the thinnest laptop of four years ago.

It’s still a lot smaller and half the price and has a larger selection of available software titles at prices a fraction of its elder cousin.

This is simultaneously fascinating and telling.
