I am new to use of this site, work as an ISO auditor and consultant and am interested in learning how to use the my new Ipad to get rid of my laptop. I use word processing, spread sheets, some statistical analysis, pdf and some presentation software, also need to be able to print, documents.
is there a way to print documents to my protable printer, it is an HP Officejet 100 Mobile printer with bluetooth?
thanks Tom

Pages, Numbers and Keynote are the iPad equivalent apps for Word, Excel and PowerPoint, so they would be a starting point.
PDFs can be created within these apps, and if you receive PDFs in emails, they can be stored and organised within the iBooks app.
Notetaker HD is a great app for editing PDFs to enable eg, form filling, and is also good for making notes in, either by handwriting with a stylus or typing and you can add photos etc to your notes.

These apps allow you to print directly from them if you have a wireless printer. I don't, so just email myself any docs I need printed, but I hardly print anything now as I keep everything on my iPad. I am sure others will come along with lots more info but hopefully that will help a little.
