The iPad can be a personal hotspot.(currently MacBooks cannot)I was thinking about getting an iPad before i bought my macbook. Now, I have a laptop for all my computing needs.
Is getting a 300-600 dollar device just to consume some media a good use of money?
Well, I do have a MacBook Air, but I mostly leave it at the office -- I basically use it as a desktop that I can occasionally bring home with me if need be.
