    What MacBook Pro do you have? Specs?

    What are the specs of the iPad 2 (size, color, 3G?), and the MacBook Air?

    This is a very vague question with no details.

    Lots of other factors such as condition and availability of original software/peripherals would come into play too.

    Lol. No way I'd fade a 2011 MacBook Pro for an old 2009 Air.

    why don't you sell your mbp, buy a mba, and save the extra money for your next purchase

    I agree at least a 2010 MBA. OP, I would just keep what you have as it not worth to trade for the old air and iPad 2.

    The MacBook Pro is the ultimate road warrior, much better than a MacBook Air because it has a full voltage processor (not Ultra Low Voltage like the MBA) and it also has a DVD drive, which I still find useful if you don't have a main desktop. Also the specs of that MacBook Air are pretty dated by today's standards.

    Don't get an old MacBook Air - The first couple of generations really sucked... They were underpowered and overpriced.

    And not to mention they were more prone to overheating.

    It would very much depends on the specs, but personally I would see it as a trade you should do!
