    How is it that I'm an Apple homer? I'm not buying an iPad for myself. I didn't buy an iPhone for more than a year after it was released. I went a decade between buying my last 2 Macs. I use a PC desktop more than my MacBook Pro.

    But hey... I said something good about an Apple product so I'm obviously a homer now... :rolleyes:

    What kind of media? You can rip any CD into iTunes. You can use HandBrake to rip any DVD into an iTunes-compatible video format.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of apps. If I wanted to add Powerpoint, for example, and had the install CDs, how does one do that?

    One doesn't... :ha:

    The only apps you can use are the ones you download from the iTunes App Store.

    You may be able to view PowerPoint files in the $10 iPad version of Keynote. I think you can view but not save them.

    Guy here at work created a "powerpoint" presentation on his computer and made changes to it when he put it on his iPad. The iPad is also how he is going to control the presentation as well.

    My order just got delivered today and I'm impressed. It isn't perfect for everyone but I'm typing this out and the keyboard is excellent (thought it's not going to be as good for a touch typist). The apps i predownloaded look beautiful on it. And the sound quality is frankly surprisingly good.

    I'll have possession of it for a week before it goes to my grandmother, but I can see the attraction of getting one as a netbook alternative.
