As a non-techy is it easy to transfer files and set up an ipad to act like my old Dell laptop?
Good to hear from you. Youâ€™ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Donâ€™t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the â€˜Searchâ€™ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and enjoy your iPad
The iPad cannot really replace a laptop completely - it was never intended to. Steve Jobs called it the 'third way'. It does some things a lot better than a laptop but some things it either cannot do or does not do as well. I find I use my iPad about 80% of the time and my laptop for the rest. So it really depends on what you want to use it for. If you're a business user and want Office compatibility then, yes, there are Office-compatible apps but they're stripped down versions of their PC counterparts and will struggle with complex documents. Best advice is to take a trip to the nearest Apple Store and spend a couple of hours there with an iPad. That will give you a very clear idea of whether it will be right for you. Transferring files is not an issue - there are many ways to move files from your PC or laptop to the iPad.
If you donâ€™t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
