    Welcome, from Cali! The iPad doesn't support flash ~ but there are some workarounds such as Skyfire or Puffin.

    Most are sluggish and unpredictable, unfortunately.

    I've found Puffin to be the least flaky for Flash but it is a battery hog.
    One thing to consider is most of the sites I need Flash for have an app that works great on my Ipad, avoiding the whole browser experience.

    No offense, but it sounds like you may not fully understand what the iPad platform is like. It's very, very different from Windows. You cannot use software made for Windows on it. You can only use programs made specifically for iOS, purchased/obtained through iTunes.

    So no, you can't use IE. However there are many alternate web browsers available. Unfortunately Flash is not supported (directly) and probably never will be. So if Flash support is very important to you, then the iPad may not serve your purposes.

    Good luck.

    you could use remote desktop by mocha soft which allows you to remotely login into your windows pc, obviously pointless if your sat at home, but if you really need to access your files away from home, or whatever then it could come in useful, only problem is that you will be limited by connection speed

    Splashtop is a great remote desktop app for 3 bucks.

    Or wait for the new Samsung Galaxy 10.1 to be released. Looks to be the best Android tablet thus far, with the thinness and weight of the iPad 2. (actually a gram lighter!)

    If you read the fourth post in this thread you will see that you can't download IE to the iPad. So we will now close this thread.
