Just bought a 128gb iPad Air. I returned a MacBook Pro Retina and bought the iPad Air instead. I love having it because of its portability, but there are a few things I am missing. Number 1, I want to continue playing Battlefield 4. Number 2, I type a lot of documents for school. Number 3, I want to have a movie collection from torrents. So here is the issue I have and some questions. Is the iPad Air a good laptop replacement for school? Multitasking, research, typing papers etc... The computer I want to build is a hackintosh, are these difficult machines to build and are they aggravating to deal with? Finally, I can only choose between this ipad and building a custom computer. What would you do and why if you were me?
