Right now I'm saving up for a MacBook Air, but now I'm not sure if I should get that, or an iPad. I have about $440 saved up. I don't really do that much intense stuff (but maybe every now and again).
Mostly I would use it for games and YouTube videos; what should I do? I want the iPad because it's cheaper and yet still cool, but I really need my own computer plus there are a lot of things online that a computer can do that an iPad can't. And if an iPad, which gen?
P.S. Right now I only have an iPhone 4S but I previously had an iPod 4 and never had an iPad or Mac of any kind.

If you "really need" your own computer then save up for a mac if you want a mac. iPads are nice but as a student they are not handy. At least for me they are not. If you really want an iPad wait for the next-gen to come out, rumoured in summer to come out.
Overall though, get the mac. You are better off, especially if you need a computer
