Two totally different machines. One is OS X, the other iOS. I want the freedom to drag and drop a movie file onto my MBA for travel. With the iPad I have to convert it to the right format, sync to iTunes, etc. And I still encounter websites with flash. Don't want to deal with blue question marks when I need to look at something on the road.
The only concession I'll make to the iPad is battery life. The 11" MBA has shitty battery life, hence why I'll probably bring along an external battery just in case.
