    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. You’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. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ 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 don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
