I gave the iPad a try. I truly tried to like it but I hit it's boundaries every time I used it. Great toy, bad tool. Got $550 for the iPad on Craigslist, then sold my 2009 white MB for a awesome $700. Took my winnings, and ordered a 13 MBA. I am smitten. This thing flies! I am surprised how fast his thing moves for such a puny processor. What a screen, what a design. Love it. I see myself keeping this machine for years just like my original Macbook Pro. Any one else ditch the ipad for MBA? If your on the fence better sell now before they announce the new one.
