    If you already have the iPad 1, I would get the Sandy Bridge Macbook Air and upgrade to iPad 3 next year which will likely have the retina display, way better camera, maybe even a faster processor, and even yet longer battery life.

    No brainer. Go for the air. The iPad 2 is not worth it for someone with the original.

    I have the exact same devices you have (MBA 1st edition, iPad 1)

    I plan to get a laptop this year, then an iPad 3 next year

    my advice is just like everyone else on this thread: MBA:apple:

    How is this a decision?

    We're in a Post-PC world my a4se. If you need a computer get the Air.

    Also the iPad 2 is 1/2 through it's refresh cycle, so really replacing your iPad now doesn't seem worth it.
