I am purchasing an iPad tomorrow and was wondering why I keep reading of the need to back up your iTunes account on your PC? I'm actually thinking of getting rid of our laptop in the house and just going with the iPad. Is it not possible to just manage your iTunes account from the iPad and back everything up through that. Why do you need to bring a PC into the equation? I'm sorry if I haven't explained myself particularly well but it's a subject that's confusing the heck out of me! Thanks in advance for any help, and thansk also to many people on previous threads who've managed to answer many of my other questions.
