    Hey there, i'm brand new here and I haven't got my iPad yet, its meant to be arriving on Tuesday but basically what I wanted to find out about was do you have to have a Mac to begin using the iPad, or can I just do it via the iTunes on my Windows laptop?

    So basically is it possible to have an iPad and set it up and charge it all through my Windows laptop?

    Thanks for your help in advance :)

    Hi there and welcome.

    You don't need a mac, a windows computer with the latest iTunes is fine to set up your iPad. If your iPad is new it should come with some charge in it and your laptop should trickle charge it, once set up you should plug it into the charger that comes with the iPad to fully charge it but you can use it whilst it is charging.

    There is lots of good advice and info on here plus plenty of members all too willing to help with any problems.
