I have just purchased an Ipad and would like to use Icloud to share my mail contacts with my Laptop, can I do this with Windows Mail?
No, you require Outlook (2007 or 2010)
Forget Icloud - use windows live which will sync with both your PC and with your Ipad/ Iphone (use Hotmail account). Also forget photostream because it does not work... use skydrive which works seamlessly across all units
