Apple Tablet: iPad or MacBook Air, Apple Tablet or Apple Notebook? Or Why Buy an iPad Rather Than a MacBook Air

The Apple Tablet is probably the year's most hyped device, but now,
knowing almost everything about it, one good question comes to mind, why
would anyone buy the iPad and not go for a MacBook or maybe the thin
MacBook Air?
First thing that comes to mind is pricing. Yes,ย the magical and
revolutionary device sells for $499, $599 and $699 on the Wi-Fi model
that has 16, 32 and 64GB of flash storage, while the Wi-Fi + 3G model
(by now you probably already know that 3G is optional and it costs more)
should be sold at $629, $729 and $829, respectively.
But look, that 64GB model which boasts 3G connectivity is not far from
the starting price of a MacBook laptop with a 15.4-inch display and more
than decent specs. So why not buy a MacBook instead of the iPad? Could
it be that the device appeals to you from an aesthetic point of view, as
we have to agree, it looks pretty stylish. Of course it does, but so
does the MacBook Air, except for the fact that the thin and light
notebook starts selling at some $1,499. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; }

So does that mean the iPad is a good buy? We don't know. That's why
we're asking you. Is it?
