I would like to sync it with my iPhone and macBook. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers.
There's good information in the previous posts. I'll only add that since you have an iPad 2 you will only be able to upgrade the iOS to version 6.0.1.
Io5 did have iCloud capabilities but the iOS has continued to evolve and is now at iOS 6.0.1. Apple does not presently allow users to update to anything other than the most recent version their device will support.
I will also add that I too have an iPad 2 and it presently has iOS 6.0.1. It works very well with iCloud, my iPhone 5 and the MacBook Pro that I sync both devices with.
