It'll browse the web, read PDF and epub, run LibreOffice, VS, email, Corel PaintShop Pro X9 ... everything I've thrown at it.
Gripes after two years? The magnetic keyboard connectors have bent, so I don't use the keyboard any more, and the pen was a waste of space. Oh, and it was too big to comfortably run Android as it felt like a preschool tablet with icons that big!
I'd say the Air will do everything that does, and more.

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

They have both made me very happy -- the fact that they're not crippled by phone OSes and their USB ports are pretty big contributors to that.
I can't say enough good about them.
The bad (for the 10.1 inch, which I tend to be less gentle with) is that the screens break bloody easily -- I've had to replace it twice (at a cost of about a tenner, from ebay), because a single (biggish) crack stops touch working altogether.
But if you're not as physically abusive to your gadgets as I am (or if you don't have nightmares about fixing hardware), I'm sure you'll be much happier with it than you would be with an android or apple equivalent.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
It's the poor girl's spell checker lacking the word skill set probably. I have a lot of sympathy for honest job recruiters, but unfortunately get spammed mainly by indian subsidiaries for 6 month contracts, and they read my resume that I have been with the same company for 12 years ... at some point I made my accounts on these web sites invisible.
When they screw up some project in India and they have to deliver to North America, they usually hire some poor local to fix the mess for a couple of months ... if they can find someone.
Unfortunately I was forced to put in my spam list every indian name that sends me an email. Always the same tired BS.
