I prefer taking my iPad to classes and meetings over either my Macbook or my iPhone. But if you find you aren't using your iPad, I suggest an 11 in Macbook Air. You can sell the iPad to help pay for the Mac. When closed, the MBA feels about the same as carrying an iPad but it's a full computer (with limited vertical resolution). It should do fine for all the tasks you mentioned above.

Another option to consider is the 13 in Macbook Pro. It is larger and heavier but has more ports and a larger screen.

BTW, don't worry about "learning" OS X. There's a few things to adjust to (after Windows) but overall OSX is a very well designed OS that is easy and efficient to use.

yeah i want to sell my ipad first, i know the ipad is very very good stuff for studying, persentation, browsing but like what i said ,i think it's not productive using two ios (new ipad and iphone)
btw is the Macbook air hardware enough to randering photoshop , and video editing software?? iam doubt because it's using i5 on proc and less RAM than macbook pro.

If you want to do video editing, I recommend a MBP, partly because of its upgradable RAM and HDD. For everything else, the Air is more than adequate.

Yeah I would suggest selling the iPad and replace with the new MPA or maybe the 13" MBP.
Thanks for response guys ! Hmm.. Okay i think i gonna get a 13" 750gb macbook pro. But when i read the spec again the 13" macbook pro only use 2 core i7 instead the 15" use 4 core how big the impact for processing some video ?

Sell the iPad, get 13" MBA, get One to One to teach you how to use it, get Pages, Numbers, Keynote instead of MS Office, way cheaper and cloud enabled.
