iPad vs. Macbook Air - how do I choose???
So, I got the OK from my other half to get an iPad.. I have gone back and forth, but I think the idea of replacing the hundreds (seriously) of magazines I have in my office with digital versions might be the selling point.
I have a MBP 17" with a 23" cinema display that I use as a desktop.
I got the MBA when it cam out so I could travel with it.
the 17" was a brick compared to it.
NOW the iPad comes out. WhenI am not traveling, the MBA turns into my "couch" computer. My thoughts are this:
get the iPad, integrate it as much as possible. Sell the MBA and the MBP and get a new 15" MBP.
anyone trade in their MBA for an iPad and like it?

If you don't have to use a specific Mac application or do a lot of typing then get the iPad, no brainer. Lighter, better for lots of tasks, and incredible battery life. I honestly haven't used my MBP since getting the iPad though I'm still using the desktop for synching and Mac tasks.

Well like everyone said it depends what you plan to do with the iPad. I have a 17" MBP for my usual use. My iPad allows me to leave the MBP at work 4 days out of the week taking it home on the weekends. I use my iPad for email, surfing the web, twitter and other fun stuff. I have used Wordpress to update my blogs but anything hardcore would require me to bring my MBP home.
