Okay, so even if I wouldn't "need" both, I'd like to know if I'd "benefit from" having both. Right now I'm the owner of an iPad 2, an iPhone, and no other computer. I recently sold my 2010 13" MacBook Pro and plan on buying a MacBook Air soon. But now I'm wondering, once I have a MacBook Air, do I really need an iPad too? I could probably get about $650 back if I was to sell the iPad 2, and I could put that money towards the computer. That's a good amount of cash, and if I'd barely use the iPad it'd be a pretty big waste. My computational needs/uses: -lots of emailing -taking notes and participating in class (I'd HAVE to use the MBA for this, due to some teacher's websites not working with the iPad) -organizing and editing photos -making music -the device being something I can easily bring with me, either around the house or on campus I'm worried that I'll have regret, and realize how I miss [blank] about the iPad after I've gotten rid of it, so I want to make a very logical decision here, and I want to realize all the ups and downs of just having the MBA. You can speak from your experience, or just give opinions based on my uses. I basically just want to hear some reasons for what you would do and why. Thanks!
