    Have recently launched myself into the Apple world with an IPad Air 128gb with cellular. decided my first buy was my best buy and at my age might be my last buy! Did not make the purchase lightly....after great consideration....why did I want to move away from my old faithful systems to something totally new...blame age again!
    Heading overseas soon and wanted to be able to transfer Nikon files to view and save for self and husband along with the usual travel advantages. Have bought a nice Epson air printer (Expression for photos) and have been able to sort myself out reasonably well.
    I knew I might miss my MSOffice suite however, have had a play in numbers and reckon that will do me for what I need on a personal level. Anything I am doing for my current commitments for clubs and charities will do on husbands set up.
    Perhaps the only thing I am struggling with is "back up" of photos and files to an external hard drive. Will bring this up in a forum. Have done a bit of research but would like a bit more help but will ask in appropriate spot.
    I should mention that my IPad has taken over from my old lap top and will now be my only "computer". I will be working at maintaining it that way and working at work arounds so as not to have to use my husbands!!!!
    Looking forward to learning as much as possible (and for my phone contract to run out so I can get an iPhone)

    Thank you and apologies for slow reply. Have literally had my head stuck into many of the links you have suggested and more. Plus have used the Apple support people who have been excellent. It helps knowing the right questions to ask! Have tracked a few answers down through the forum which has been great..many thanks.

    Lol..... ;)

    When I first joined, I think I had my head in the threads here for a week without surfacing, there's just so much to explore.

    And you'll love using your iPad for travelling, it's just so much easier than having to take a laptop.

    I've linked a few of our threads I thought you might find interesting! Enjoy!
