    I have an I-Pad 2 and an I-Pad 3. No problems whatsoever, BUT:
    In the space of 2 days, both my laptops ( one used for each I-Pad) have stopped working with the dreaded blue screen. We had a huge power storm & I'm afraid they both got fried. One was a Sony Vaio running XP and the other an HP running Vista.
    They are both too old to worry about, but my question is:
    1. I want to replace with Mac Book Air or similar. Will this create problems with old pc's still on Apple web site?
    2. Can I expect any problems on this approach?

    Hi Dick...welcome to the forum.

    Sorry to hear about our laptop, too. Have a look at this link from apple on transferring purchases to a new computer:

    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer

    Hope that helps and good luck!
