I have an opportunity to trade my white wifi iPad Air 16gb for a mint condition 11 inch mid 2012 MacBook Air MD223LL/A 64 GB model. I've searched all over the internet to find a good market value price for the MacBook Air, but prices are all over the place.

The only reason I'm considering this trade is because I also own a iPad Mini Retina and find myself never really touching my Air. Based on my usage I prefer the rMini. I would also like to have other options other than just owning tablets.

Anyway, this will be a straight trade with all accessories and box included. So I would like to reach out to the experts on this forum to see if this is a good deal or not, or if I'm getting ripped off.

Thanks in advance

Do you have another laptop? If you don't, then go for it!

The iPads are great, but they cannot replace a proper laptop (at least for my usage). If you already have a Retina Mini, and don't even use the Air, I'd say that MBA + rMini is a way better combo than two iPads. :)
