I am new here and my IPad is being delivered on Monday. I am really excited about it but I am a bit confused about a few things. I have picked up lots of tips on this forum which is great. I understand that I need to register on i-Tunes but why do I need to sync to my laptop. I don't have anything on the laptop i want on the iPad and I have never had an iPhone. Plus my e-mail account is MSN Hotmail will I be able to access this on the iPad? Thanks very much for your help.
