I am selling my iPad, I find it is not useful for on the road editing. I am looking at a MBA. Here is what I want to do I shoot time lapse: -Aperture 3 processing of images (3.7MP Jpeg), batches of 3000-5000 pictures. Sometimes with an extra tilt shift effect. -QT7pro to sequence photos into a movie -iMovie to add sound, and other clips (editing) -Garage band to make back ground tunes. Picture editing: -Aperture 3 RAW picture editing of 15MP images. Movies, -720P and 1080P movies (short movies), mainly taken with my goPro HD I was wanting to do some of this on an iPad, but clearly that is too much work to such a device, plus you cannot share files between apps without sync back to a Mac/PC. I like the size of a MBA 11, I am not worried about screen space, seeing anything I need to do big, I can do at home on my iMac. also anybody got any experience with solar chargers.
