The wife & I are thinking about getting an iPad. We'll either get the 16gb 3G or the 16gb without 3G. The wife knows nothing about Macs & I know enough to be dangerous, LOL (got an iMac for Christmas). What I'm curious about is what would we gain by getting the $999 MacBook Air? If we go the iPad route, we're getting one of those Zagg things which gives it a keyboard & cover. That puts the price about $599 or $729 depending if we get 3G. I've heard the iPad can't multitask. Is that true? One reason we favor the iPad is being able to use 3G when we need it without a contract. Anyway, any opinions on the basic differences between the iPad & MacBook Air? Btw, storage size isn't really an issue with us.
