My daughter is interested in buying the 64 gig iPad (wifi only) since the price is being lowered. Her main concern is if she uses it to take notes (she's a college student) in class, how does she transfer the data from the iPad to her laptop. I've briefly looked through this forum and from what I understand, she can transfer the notes via iTunes. However, I know iPad does not have Microsoft Word on it, only Pages, etc. Is it going to create a problem if she uses Pages on the iPad, transfers the notes to her Mac Book Pro and converts it into Word?

    If you have an Apple iPad and iTunes 9.1 or later on your Mac then it's easy to transfer files between your iPad and your computer. This guide will show you how. How to transfer files from a computer to an iPad using File Sharing

    1. Connect your computer to the iPad using the USB cable.
    2. Launch iTunes on the computer.
    3. In the Devices section of the left-hand menu on iTunes select iPad.
    4. Click on the Apps tab and scroll to the bottom of the page.
    5. In the File Sharing section you can see a list of apps that support file sharing on your iPad. Click on an app and you will see a list of the documents for that app on your iPad.
    6. To copy a file to your computer to the iPad simply drag and drop it from the document list onto the Desktop or another folder.

    Will be buying the iPad within a day or two

    Note that the new iPad 2 will be released on 11 March.
    Same price as the iPad now on sale.
    If I were you, I'd wait a week to purchase.
