I know that iPad and MBA have different functionalities but I was wondering if anyone used a MBA as an iPad alternative. We have an iPad2 and my wife has been using it more and more when she travels, she uses it as a reader, movies, for FaceTime (she has a Dell for work), etc. I was thinking of picking up a second iPad but I am loathe to do so until Apple releases an iPad LTE. I am sticking with my iPhone 4 for the same reason. My wife suggested using an MBA for those times that I would reach for the iPad. FWIW - I use an iMac for serious work.
