What I meant is to use a Bluetooth keyboard with the tablet.
This combo should be much cheaper than the Macbook Air and lighter.

This is really a great idea and looking into the future given that tablets are also increasing its computing power, it maybe possible soon. Like in our office we installed apache server in android tablets and run Simple DTR application using Yii.

Granted, with the right tablet, and the right amount of work, I'm sure you could stand up a workable environment, and in the absence of connectivity, find some tasks that will be valuable.
When comparing a tablet to an ultrabook as a primary development device, I only see drawbacks. Maybe a Surface Pro is in your future
