I use both extensively for work. My usage pattern is roughly something like this:
- read and annotate pdf files (which I can do for several hours every day)
- note taking
- it's my primary device when I go to conferences or seminars, especially when I'm away for a full day. This is because I never have to worry about battery running out or internet access (having a 3G version), and I also like the opportunity to take hand written notes.
- some writing, depending on what I'm doing and where I am
- web surfing and emailing while at home - I usually leave my Air in my office during week days
- this is where I do the majority of my writing, data analysis and project management.
I often find that I use the two devices side by side. For example, I might read and annotate a document on the iPad while taking notes on my Air, or I might be reading data transcripts on my iPad while mind mapping on the Air.
I personally find the 13" very portable, but of course it's a little bit bigger than the iPad. I assume the 11" would be very similar to the iPad, but I wanted the bigger screen and additional battery life of the 13", and I found that for my purposes, the iPad and the 11" would overlap too much.
For me, getting rid of the iPad would be a significant loss, but I think this really comes down to use patterns and the you might find that the Air covers all your needs effectively.
