Pls forgive if this topic has been asked before... My ipad2 is now almost 2 years and it has been my constant companion,reduced the use of my laptop pc to a great extent.I'm thinking of getting a new one.the soon to be released iPad But I have been reading a lot about 11 inch mac air and I'm confused now. On one hand I absolutely love the iPad and it is a great device for movies,Internet,social network,chatting,video calling which are my primary uses. I do a bit of note /writing on my iPad using Evernote .contrary to the popular opinion I have no problem with the touch keypad.i like the auto prediction feature very much.so not having a physical keyboard is not a big thing for me. And well the battery life : it's double the mac air. The thing confusing me If I get the mac air im getting a full desktop OS with the portability of iPad. It's expensive and have less battery life...AND I ALWAYS WANTED A MAC What do u think is the better investment ?
