    Would you trade an ipad 4th gen 32GB for a mid 2009 MacBook Air?
    What do you guys think?

    No I wouldn't. I would only do it for an air from 2010 or newer depending on the model. The jump from 2009 to 2010 airs was huge.

    I think you would be better off selling the ipad and buying a 2010 or newer air before going with the 09.

    Just my 2 cents

    Yeah but if I were to sell I'm sure maybe. Like 530, aren't MacBook airs starting from 2009 like $700+

    If you know the seller and there's nothing dodgy then sure

    But ask yourself whether you need a MBA, and whether the iPad does the job

    I just took a look on Ebay at completed listings, and there are a few as "new" that sold for $600 to $650. But most where between $450 and $550. Some where even lower than that. This was for the 120 GB option. So I guess it is a "fair" trade, but you can get a 2010 for just a little bit more.

    Again, do what you want, but just my thoughts.
