    seems you don't have any other choice but to make a direct transfer.
    Lots of ways to do that.

    You might want to give Dropbox a try. You get 2 gigs of space for free. What it does is put a folder on your computer that you just put files into and it automatically syncs them online. Then install the (free) app on your iPad and you can get to the file that way. If you make changes to either end it will sync those to the cloud so you'll always be up to date. According to the app it will open ppt files right in the app.

    I have saved some PowerPoint presentations that I have done as a PDF. Once you have done that, you can use any number of apps to view it. Actually, the free iBooks app works well for this. Just copy the PDF file and the paste it into iTunes. The next time you sync (peled is going to hate this part), the file will be under the PDF section of iBooks.

    If the other suggestions aren't working for you (and I almost always like the versatility available for displaying PDF), here is how to make Keynote work for you, maybe.

    Grab the iPad User's Guide. In Chapter 5 there is a section on File Sharing. This is how you manually load files into apps via iTunes. There is a limit to how big a Power Point the Keynote app will handle. I'm not sure what this is, so you'll just have to try. If it won't fit consider breaking your PowerPoint down into sections or chapters. Hopefully there is a way to do this that makes some kind of logical sense.

    Link for PDF of iPad Users Guide: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPad_User_Guide.pdf

    Or you can use the iBooks app and go to the iBooks Store to download it in ePub format. Both app and book are free.

    Transferring is one thing. Will a 1GB file display in an app on the iPad? The thing doesn't have that much ram.

    It's not a matter of RAM. I have several movies on my iPad, one of which is 2.5GB in size.
