    Macbook Pro 15 inch and Macbook Air 11 inch vs Macbook Pro 17 inch and iPad 2.

    A $200 Toshiba, because that seems to suffice your basic needs of asking stupid, mindless questions on here without stating any other information that's necessary for us to consider before responding.

    He asked which one would YOU choose. Not which one he should choose. As always it's speedy with the sarcasm around here.

    To answer your question. I've been considering the same idea.

    11" Air for sure and it's a toss up between the 15 and 17". The size of the 17" screen is appealing.

    Wasn't sarcasm, frankly.
    I've taken my pick of 15" + 11".

    17 + iPad 2. No need to have 2 computers with a 17+11 or 15+11.

    Not true. What if your mobile work requires more than what an iPad can do?

    Two computers are better if you're creating content or trying to work efficiently. Otherwise sure an iPad is fun and useful for many other things.

    Neither?

    The iPad is too incapable for what I need to do with a mobile, and the 15 Macbook Pro won't hack what I need to do at my desk.

    I'd choose a MBP 15" for all manner of serious and non-serious work, play and interests, whilst being portable enough to take round different locations and use.
    iPad2 for walking around the house with.

    I do music production, 3D work, Photoshop work, as well as web development and everything else. Everyone has different needs so I don't understand the point of this thread, e.g. I have absolutely no interest in the Air's whereas other people love them.

    Hmm...do I have so much money I feel the need to buy two laptops for myself (I suppose it's an expensive way of having dual monitors)?

    Do I want to have a HUGE laptop and a wee play toy?

    None of the above. I've just bought a 17" MBP and although I toyed very briefly with the idea of getting an iPad too, I quickly got that out of my mind.

    MBP 17" + iPad 2 if I had to choose between your options.
    MBP 17" + 32GB iPod Touch is what I actually chose.

    I don't see the point in having a notebook AND an iPad, as you can't carry either in your pocket, but you can carry either in a bag.

    Not true (for me anyway :D). I have secondary cameras importing live into a laptop on my film sets, whilst I use air display on an iPad as a wireless carryaround monitor.
