hi,

i have become member of this forum because i wish to purchase an ipad shortly & want to know whether it satisfies my needs.

i am a civil contractor by profession & head my own contracting firm.

i wish to do following things on my ipad.

1]transfer pdf files from my laptop (windows) to ipad, open them on ipad during meeting with clients.
2]transfer photos from my laptop to ipad, open them during meetings.
3]install a simple daily diary program (i use idaily-diary ) on my laptop and use it.

i wont be doing any web surfing, emailing , playing games etc on ipad.

the reasons i wish to purchase ipad rather than an android tablet are
1] longer battery life
2]simpler user interface
3]my requirements are very basic so multi tasking etc do not matter to me.

I transfer all my files including PDF files using Dropbox, it's a free app for your iPad, laptop and just about any other device you have.

For a free diary app have a look at Opus Domini Mobile. I have the paid version so I'm not entirely sure of how stripped down the free version is. There are some great paid diary apps though if you are feeling a bit adventurous, SmartPad, Pocket Informant, et al.
