My two cents worth please!!! My wife works for a major airline and we fly free, we use to lug around a 17" HP laptop so we could check on our flights, we bought the iPad Air to replace the laptop for traveling and what a wonderful change in weight and size.

It sounds to me that this has come about because your laptop is on the way out - correct?
You have to make a choice - laptop or iPad.
Since your laptop is now under scrutiny, why not hit the middle ground?
Ask to have your laptop replaced with a MBP 13" or MB 13". A small powerful computer that will fulfil all your requirements and more, the bonus is that you'll be working with the software you now like and the dodgy laptop is replaced
One more thing - wait until later in the year, to make your purchase, when all the new Apple stuff hits the shops. There maybe new software, devices and or there could be good deals on superseded stock (unlikely but you never know?)Remember - it saves you forgetting.

I agree with Blazbo. A good compromise may be an older MB. I currently have a late 2008 13" MB that I bought in Feb of '09. It came with Leopard installed. Since then, it has been updated to Snow Leopard, then Lion, and now Maverick. Still running fast and furious without a hitch. Love my little MB. You might be able to find a used one on the cheap.2008 Alum MacBook: 13", 2.4GHz, 4GB, 750GB, Snow Leopard
