    My ipad2 is my first Apple product, and so far am way glad I have it. I want to upgrade to os5 for all it's features, but can't use my company issued thinkpad to down load iTunes. Is there a way to do this without losing books and pics I've thus far downloaded on my iPad? Thanks much.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You'll need to be able to access a PC/Mac to do the upgrade with the latest iTunes installed. You shouldn't lose anything as long as you do a complete back up before it.
