My uncle hinted about possibly getting me an iPad for Christmas. Frankly, it's never been on my radar, but if someone wants to buy you a gift like that, you can't really say, "but I'd rather have...." I already have a laptop and a desktop, but both are PCs. I don't have a lot of experience with Macs, so I'm curious about what the iPad can do. Does it have full out word processing and spreadsheet capabilities like word and excel on a PC? Or is it strictly for interet access? Can it store photos? Play CD's? Can I charge and download my iPod from it? We have an Apple store where I could probably go in and play with a demo one, but there's always a line just to get in the store. Unbelieveable how popular the store seems. The ipads are so expensive, I don't see him actually buying one for me, but if one were to appear under the tree, it would be nice to know what it can do.
