To iPad or to Macbook Air?  That has long been the question amongst a many consumer considering one of the two Apple products.  There is no disputing the computing power of the Macbook Air, but for many that is hardly necessary, especially when you consider that most are in search of a device to watch YouTube videos, post a Facebook status updates, video chat and snap the occasional photo or video.  That said, the inevitable downfall for anyone seeking to compose emails or other long form text based notes is that the iPad lacks a keyboard.

The almost perfect answer to this quandry is the iPad Notebook Case.  Like other cases of a time before this one includes a Bluetooth keyboard that wirelessly connects to your iPad and holds it up right in a landscape position.  However, what sets it apart is the Macbook Air form factor that it provides.  Sure, it’s not quite as svelte as the actual Macbook Air, but it’s a good runner up to the Core i5 or i7 based computer and includes a 4000 mAh battery to keep things humming along for hours to come, though you’ll need to connect it using a USB cable to charge the tablet.

Note: This only works with the iPad 2 or 3.
