    It's not a matter of RAM. I have several movies on my iPad, one of which is 2.5GB in size.
    RAM may or may not make a difference. Some documents, like movies and music, do not need to be completely loaded in RAM, because they play sequentially. You can load what you need as you go.

    Other's like spreadsheets need to be completely in RAM (or simulated RAM), or all the calculations may not work.

    Power Points could fall either way, or probably more in between. They are mostly sequential when being displayed, but tend to need to be all there when being edited. A smart program could switch things in and out of RAM as needed. I don't know if Keynote is that smart.

    At any rate, I remember another poster who had a 1.5 GB Power Point that he definitely could not get to run in Keynote. So, I don't know if 1GB will work or not. The only way to find out, since no one seems to know actual specs, it to try it and see.

    Point taken... I suspect you'd have better luck with a PPT that had been saved as a PDF than with a PPT file and Docs To Go or Keynote. The later applications are editors and might be less forgiving of huge files.

    Early on, GoodReader made a name for itself handling ridiculously large PDFs, so if iBooks can't handle it GoodReader might be worth a look.

    Thanks for all your input, I tryed the DROPBOX thing, and in fact all the files from the PPT moved over and showed up on the iPad; but when I click on the file to run the PPT it loads up and than the iPad jumps to my main screen. I guess I should have said up front this PPT has video and sound to it. I see in Keynote where you can inport a file from iTunes, does anyone know how I can or where I would drop this file into iTunes and than import it? Thanks again for all your help.....

    I don't think iTune can sync PPT files.
    Think before you Sync Since you may Sink
