Do we still need a home computer and does it have to be a Mac?
The iPad is not a replacement for a traditional computer. It is a companion device which allows for the completion of some, but not all, of the tasks usually carried out on a traditional computer. The iPad connects to either a PC or Mac via the iTunes software. It doesn’t matter what computer you have at home. The iPad will sync, backup and talk to either PC or Mac desktops or laptops. Students are required to regularly back up the iPad at home.
