    Hi all,

    I'm currently using an iPad 1 with iOS 4.3, and my father is considering buying an iPad 2. My question is will there be any problems syncing both iPads on the same PC? Will iTunes be able to differentiate between the 2 iPads and keep the apps separate?

    Thanks!

    No problems at all. You can sync lots of Apple devices to the same PC. I have 2 iPads and 3 iPhones sync'd to my MacBookPro without any issues.

    What you can't do is sync your iPad with multiple desktops...

    Just give the devices different names and click off anything you don't want to automatically synch.

    When I've done it, I usually restore the new iPad to the profile of my earlier one, then rename it, and delete what I don't want. That's if you want most of the content and apps on the new one as well, to save time loading, but YMMV.
