    I have an IPod Touch and it's neat but too small to be very useful for online use or reading a book. I would buy the IPad. I'd have the Kindle, Ipod, ITouch, and laptop all in one. Computer snobs don't just don't get the appeal this has for non geeks.

    Boy, I've loved my Macs. Very easy transition using a Mac (Microsoft copied the Mac operating system, so it should look very familiar!) and Macs are not prone to viruses or other glitches that make a Windows computer run so slooooooowwww. I have both, but I'd much rather be on my Mac. The con is that they are costly and some software won't run on the Mac's operating system. If you have an Apple store nearby, stop in and get to know a Mac before you decide.

    You can download several mac programs, like instead of explorer to use the web I use Safari, it is a free download and a better browser, the big difference is that most of the programs for quilting and embroidery are for windows only, but you can run the second operating system on the Mac, so you can actually run windows at the same time on the Mac.

Would there be problems say if I am sending an email from a Mac to a Windows computer?
    When my computer started giving me tons of problems last year, and was looking to buy a new one, I researched which company to go with and decided on an iMac. I would NEVER go back to PC again. I love my iMAc!!!!! :thumbup:

    I have only been using a computer for almost 5 yrs and found it pretty easy to use the Mac. There is a little bit of a learning curve but only because you have to learn the alternate name for the things that you are already familiar with (ex. Explorer is called Safari, etc). There are a lot of good Mac's for Dummies type of book out there to help with the process.

    There is a program on the Mac that allows the use of Windows programs. I haven't used it yet but I believe it's called the Bridge.

    If you are interested in seeing how the iPad works, here is the video that Apple sent to me in an email:
