Hello ! Firstly, I love my 11" MBA. It's just an amazing machine and I personally call it the iPad 1.5 I carry it literally everywhere and I have an internet USB stick to make the perfect portable team. I study medicine and personally while I prefer the "oldskool" method of studying and learning (with real books, eye hurts after too much LCD) sometimes I need to search things fast, or I am just away from my books, after all I can't carry 10-15 pounds of them everywhere .. For example I have downloaded Gray's Anatomy from App Store on my Air and it's just not efficient, I waste too much time actually finding something. The advantage of the iPad is the easyness and the efficiency+gestures of an well-optimized iPad app. The newest iPad 2 ad is essentially showing what I need in my field. I've googled a lot to see some proper footage of medical apps but I would like to see some opinions from people who have actually used them. Since I will be using it ONLY for studying (I have 160GB Classic and the Air for other multimedia) I think a 16GB WiFi will suffice, maybe 32GB to be sure. For this kind of stuff I don't think I need the iPad 2, besides if you ask me, the 1st one looks a lot cooler and pro than the 2nd. And it also seems that the 1st lasts a bit longer. I am not in a rush of buying it, October will be the earliest, do you think it will get even cheaper ? (let's say 50-100$) P.S. would there be a way to tether from my Air to the iPad ? I won't take the iPad everywhere because I prefer a full-on Mac to an iOS.
