I have the 32gb Air and love it. I had the mini (1st gen) before this and found it to be the perfect reader. I could literally read for hours with no strain. The air on the other hand is still slightly heavy to hold up infront of you and read... Currently what I do is to prop it up on its smart cover in landscape mode on the table. That way i just need to touch it to turn the page. Just wondering what your experience was, and if you are using it as a reader, what font settings and brightness you use? Thanks!!
