This.If you had nothing and you only can have one, choose the MBA. If you have a desktop or laptop already, choose the iPad.
MBA. No question. Even for things like digital media, the MBA is more full featured and powerful than an iPad. iPad doesn't even have a file-system. One day in the not so distant future, iPad will be a viable option as a stand-alone PC. Today is not that day, nor will it be for the next couple of years probably.basically i'd like one or the other.. i'm studying art at uni, which is what i;d use it for. any help?
