New to site and need help
Hi, I'm Amanda. I currently own a hp touchsmart tablet pc and an iPhone 4 and am interested in the iPad 2. I am a college student and am required to have a laptop in class everyday so I am hoping to use the iPad in place of my bulky laptop. Unfortunately I am not too sure if I can use the iPad for everything i need in class, my main question is about creating excel files, so I am going to post the question in the iPad at work section since it deals with more in depth questions involving office usage. Thanks in advance for help!

Hi Welcome to the forum. I hope you find the answer to your question. Personally, I think having a laptop is always a good idea, unless you can easily access the labs at school for typing out essays...or running special programs. I guess it depends on your major.
Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and enjoy your iPad
If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
