    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Windows 8 is a completely different operating system and the ipad is not a PC, so no, but the iPad may do everything that you need and many here utilize their iPads in their business. Have a look at the info below and you will gain more of an idea of how the iPad works. There are certain native apps which come already installed on the iPad, the rest are purchased from the App Store. What is it that you would like to do?
