    What will your main uses be? Do you plan on taking it with you a lot? If you do travel then cellular data might be a good option. Unless your budget is limited the the iPad Air is a great choice. It's the current model and feels great in hand. You could save a little money and go with then fourth generation iPad which would be the 4.

    Give us more info....

    If you can afford the Air, get one... The great display is worth it.

    I use mine as you plan to -- Mostly for web surfing and e-mail. I also use it to show off my photo collection, and for GPS navigation in my car. (I have a cellular model which is the only one with built in GPS. The WiFi only iPad has no GPS receiver).

    And, I also listen to my personal recorded music as well as streaming music and Podcasts from the net.

    You'll also have to consider how much memory you'll need.

    I don't have a large personal music library, and I don't download and store high memory items like movies. I picked up a 16 Gig model and have all the memory I need. But, if you do plan to store a lot of stuff, then you might consider one with a higher memory capacity.
