Read on, as Gizmag puts it through the paces.  Read More

It was probably about three seconds after the original iPad mini launched, when the question was first asked: "How long until it gets a Retina Display?".

Today's PC market is one of blurred lines and murky definitions. But, fortunately for us, it's also a world filled with great products. Want a computer that's both portable and powerful?

Let's see if we can find out just how much, as we compare the specs (and other features) of the 2013 MacBook Air to the iPad.  Read More
