    hi,

    i have become member of this forum because i wish to purchase an ipad shortly & want to know whether it satisfies my needs.

    i am a civil contractor by profession & head my own contracting firm.

    i wish to do following things on my ipad.

    1]transfer pdf files from my laptop (windows) to ipad, open them on ipad during meeting with clients.
    2]transfer photos from my laptop to ipad, open them during meetings.
    3]install a simple daily diary program (i use idaily-diary ) on my laptop and use it.

    i wont be doing any web surfing, emailing , playing games etc on ipad.

    the reasons i wish to purchase ipad rather than an android tablet are
    1] longer battery life
    2]simpler user interface
    3]my requirements are very basic so multi tasking etc do not matter to me.

    thanks,
    i will go thru the suggested threads. meanwhile can you recommend me a thread which suggests the steps to be taken for transferring my pdf files physically from laptop to ipad.
    also could you recommend a free daily diary program? i use idaily diary on my laptop.

    I transfer all my files including PDF files using Dropbox, it's a free app for your iPad, laptop and just about any other device you have.

    For a free diary app have a look at Opus Domini Mobile. I have the paid version so I'm not entirely sure of how stripped down the free version is. There are some great paid diary apps though if you are feeling a bit adventurous, SmartPad, Pocket Informant, et al.
