Many people at some point want to decide what they want to buy and they are between an iPad and a Macbook Air. While every device has its merits and usage scenarios, there are areas where these devices offer overlapping functionality. For people that can afford two devices, this is not an issue, but what if you have to have only one device? Which is better for which job? I tried to put my thoughts into a small document, a spreadsheet where I try to compare the three devices in question. It might help some of you (and me ) in making their decision. Update: I edited the file again and updated it a bit.
