    I'm about to sell my Ipad2 for about 800-900$ later day and planning to buy the 13 inches Air with the money

    Should I do it ????.

    Also first time I buy online

    Should I

    Buy the Air now? and cancel later if the guy doesn't pay me?
    Buy the Air when the guy pays me the Ipad

    Sorry I feel stupid today

    Yes, sell the iPad2 and get the air. I did the same thing earlier this month.

    The iPad2 is fun, but almost all of my interaction with a computer involves the keyboard. Replying to your message, like I'm doing right now, would be much more painful on the iPad. In my experience, the Bluetooth keyboard was a pain to use and connect.

    The iPad is a tablet that is great for consuming content. The Air is a full-blown computer.

    Wait till you get the money from the iPad. Why cause yourself undo stress if you can't sell the iPad (although unlikely)

    You have mentioned this three times already on this forum. Are you fishing for sales here?

    Of course if you don't have the money yet, you should wait until someone buys your iPad.

    And there is no way you're getting $900 for it. Not even if it is a 3G 64GB.

    First, I can't advise you about the wisdom of buying a new MBA before you sell your iPad 2. Moving on, though, I think you will find the MBA to be a significant upgrade over the iPad 2. I bought one of the original iPads shortly after it was released a year ago last spring. Then I bought a 2010 13 inch Ultimate MBA last October and the iPad fell into almost total disuse. The iPad has a wonderful display and is quite good for content consumption. Unfortunately, though, its virtual keyboard makes document preparation painfully slow and there are things that OS X does easily that iOS deals with much more clumsily, if at all. In short, when you finally spring for an MBA as a replacement for your iPad, you'll be glad you did.

    800? what are u offering....?

    That sounds reallly overpriced. Even 750 is too high.

    I did this last year with the 2010 model and never regretted it for a second. The ability to view ALL of the Internet is a huge plus. Gimped devices like the iPad just can't compete. You'll love the Air.
