Setting the scene: I have an iPhone 4 (Verizon), iPad 2 (Wifi), and a 2011 15" MBP 2.0 i7. I will be heading off to college in one month and I really don't use my iPad 2 that much. I am going to college on a full scholarship, and I have money to either keep it or my other idea... (more in a few seconds). Degree: Computer Science (ENGINEERING) I was thinking with the release of the new MBA, would an 11" very low end model be a good product to use as a second computer in college? Would I use it more than the iPad 2. If I sold the iPad, it would only be about $400 for the MBA and I feel that I would use it a little more than the iPad...? Again I have enough money to do this, but would it be worthwhile? Has anyone gone to college with 2 laptops like this? I think I could use the Air while I don't need the power of the MBP and can jump back to the Pro when I need it? I don't really know, I was just thinking about it because I really truly don't need the iPad 2 and will probably sell it anyway. So do you think I could use 2 laptops while at college more successfully than one computer? Thanks for the advice! EDIT: I would also get the Apple Gift card, overall it would cost me about $500 and then I have the gift card, so $400.
