    depends what you do. One is a computer and one is mostly for reading/apps/games. You will not be able to be as productive using an ipad as you would a mac. Do you need a PC for work/school?

    i would like to get a newer mac. my mac mini is 2007 and my macbook pro is the mid 2009 that's starting to slow down.. Its between a macbook pro and a macbook air.. I can upgrade the macbook pro myself. I dont like imac. Ideally a mac pro would be more than perfect but the memory upgrades are two expensive.

    I need portability and power for logic but im not sure which machine i should choose....

    I'd suggest that you get a MBP and an iPad; given your stated desire for portability, and apparent need for a computer with a proper keyboard, the iPad and MBP strikes me as being an excellent combination.

    By all means get a MBA if portability is a key requirement. However, my personal view is that a MBA and an iPad together might be excessive, as the iPad alone would satisfy the need for something easily portable.

    Very good post which sums up the difference between the two better than I did.
