By the way they sell good because Apple is popular and a good Apple Laptop is almost double the price of the 13" Air.
Excuses? I don't have this new mba. If you want to know how slow it is on an ipad3(~500-700) then buy it with a camera kit($50). That thing takes forever to load images. If you take 8mp photos using jpeg then it's perfectly suitable. If you take 24mp RAW+jpeg like me then it's a whole different story. The folder system in the ipad is annoying also. I would know, I have the camera kit and I've tried using it. Of course, I tried using the wifi feature on one of my camera(Nex 5R) and IOS does not work with the PlayMemories app. Even though the app worked perfectly fine with iOS 5.x, iOS 6 has done nothing but cause network problems and screw up some of the apps i use.
No excuses, you just haven't tried to use it.
And if work calls me when I'm out doing something I have to log in on my comp for email and secured websites that just doesn't work on tablets. I would have to carry laptop + tablet. So no ipad and 15" is just a tad too big and heavy to fit in my bag with everything else. The only person making up excuses here is you and you haven't really try to do real work with these devices.
