I don't know. Why would you want a MBA? What can't you do with an iPad? That's what more you could do with an MBA.

macbook Air has the weight of an Ipad (nearly) and has only 1 moving part, no HD to crash
Macbook Air is the ONLY mac with Haswell , 802ac wifi, and incredible 12hr battery life
Macbook Air has ultrafast 8 second boot from SSD
An Ipad, though I have 2 of them and love them, are just a technical TOY, not a working device, not a productivity tool. You cant compare an Ipad to a Macbook Air.
Ive got a Pro and an Air. Air has many advantages over that of a Pro.
However if you have an Ipad AND a Pro, then youve got enough to do anything you want between the two.

I have a Macbook Pro and a Macbook Air. I used to have an iPad but I was always feeling very limited by it, especially because of Safari which doesn't work well with all sites, like Safari on OS X, and the lack of a real keyboard, that works great with the OS. I sold my iPad 4 in September and got a Macbook Air 11".
The only thing I miss is the Retina display of the iPad, but for reading I use my rMBP and my iPhone 5S, so that isn't a big problem.
Of course I am tempted by the iPad Air, but I know I will have no real usage for it. It is a luxury item, so I have to consult with my wallet
If you are satisfied with your iPad and don't feel limited by it, then you don't need a Macbook Air. If you feel otherwise then I suggest you sell your iPad and get a Macbook Air. It is a much better device, has a great battery life and is a full blown computer with no limitations.
