I agree with most of what you wrote, but be fair here. You should be
measuring the thickest part of the Air, not the thinnest. The thinnest
part only refers to the outer edge. Tapering is not the same thing as
reducing overall thickness. The vast majority of the Air is 0.76"
thick, which makes the Adamo 15% thinner. Saying the Air is thinner
because the outer edge is thinner is quite misleading.
