I tried syncing to my Windows laptop using iTunes. It refuses to back up my apps since they aren't supported by windows. I'm hoping I'm just doing it wrong. Any suggestions?

Yes, it has to be something you are doing wrong. I sync just fine on Windows 7 x64, with no problems with my Apps.

It is your set up as all apps are 100%
supported using iTunes on a pc.

That makes no sense at all. What is the error message?

When your iPad is plugged in, go to the app tab for it (not the main app tab). Make sure sync apps is checked....or that selected apps is checked and you have the apps checked you want to sync....

PC but I want to sync with Mac

I got rid of my MacBook Pro about 8 months ago and bought a new HP 17.3" quad core laptop but now I'd like to get rid of the HP and go back to a Mac. I'd really like to go to an iMac. I've used iMacs before and they are really nice systems. Now that my iPad is scheduled to arrive next Wednesday (May 26th), I'm thinking about putting my HP laptop on Craigslist for trade for a reasonably new iMac. If you have really nice Apple toys, you should run them on a Mac so you can get all the functionality out of them.

The last Mac I had was an SE/30. Never looked back. I do have to support the macs at the office on occasion.

PC for a whole bunch of reasons, not the least of which is CHOICE.

Love Macs though - there might be one in my future in ADDITION to my PC, not in place of it.

I have both, but I'll sync with my Macbook Pro. I use Final Cut Studio and I have consoles for gaming so I use my Mac much more.
