    They do not want a ipad do to it does not have a USP port, firewire port ,no slots for memory card or flash memory :(:(

    No CD/DVD or blu ray drive :(

    Can you get a docker station to hook up to the ipad to give some of these ports?

    I'm trying say the only way to transfer stuff is by bluetooth.

    nec209,
    What you want is a Laptop. An iPad won't do. It will likely never have the items you want. Maybe a few, but nowhere all of those you specify.

    I agree the problem here is many and I mean many people resist changes they believe they have to have all of the above to use a computer which is not the case. If it does not have USB, big hard drive and 4 ghz ram and a DVD drive it is useless. Go buy a pc laptop with blue ray DVD/cd drives USB ports 650 gb drive, 4 tbs ram blue tooth video dedicated card and all the other stuff and a low battery life and live the moment. My iPad has replaced my MacBook for everything I do but that is my choice. Hope you find what you want

    Further to the above i was sort of harsh sorry about that. My
    Suggestion is take this family person to an apple store and show the iPad to him or her and let them play. What exactly does the family member do day to day on a computer just curious. i have several users and friends whom had they same issues however once they understood the concept of how the iPad functioned they fell in love. Recently a close friend wanted to buy a small 13" lap top to use while travelling Europe because of all of the above. I convinced her to purchase a 3 g / wifi iPad with camera kit. She just arrived back and I could not stop her raving how useful the iPad was on her holiday and how fantastic it was to upload her Picts from the movie camera and still camera to the iPad and preview every thing she did. Just a point to share with you.

    For playing music yes docking stations exist. Apple also has a USB adapter for camera and sd support.

    The only thing you can connect to it is a keyboard, and a camera connectionkit, which will let you put images onto the iPad from a camera. The features you are looking for are not available at this time.

    Bluetooth is limited to head sets and speakers not for transfer of data from iPad to computer iTunes is main method of transfer other than using cloud base storage which is what most do. What do you wish to transfer then we can provide the correct solutions as other wise it is hit and miss
