Computer Query

As you will have gathered, nothing to do with cookery but hope someone can advise me. I have a computer Microsoft XP which is located in an upstairs bedroom. I would like to purchase an iPad so that I can use it anywhere in the house or outside in the Summer House etc but have been told that an Apple iPad is not compatible with my computer so anything I already have on my main computer cannot be used/transferred to an iPad. Can anyone enlighten this "silver surfer" please?

that isn't really true.

The system you have and the one you are contemplating are not directly compatible, that is true.

However, you must decide what you wish to do with your new iPad.

If you want to surf the internet, certainly, if you have wireless internet or mobile data you can do this.

You cannot take a memory card from one and plug it into the other. However, you can subscribe to a free cloud service such as dropbox.com. If you do this they will give you a certain amount of 'cloud storage space.' You can load the stuff you might want to view on your iPad in there, then look at it from the iPad.

I hope this helps!

Many thanks for your quick response which was certainly helpful. I already have wireless. I just want to use an ipad for emails, downloading Apps, surfing the net and camera use/taking photos and storing them etc. I would use my main computer for typing/storing documents and the like.
