Ask an Expert: iPad Questions

William asks…

Is Quicken software (money management) compatible with the iPad?

Can the iPad run any programs that work on a mac?

Quicken is not available for iPad, but here’s a list of some other finance apps that do work:

Helen asks…

Is an iPad worth buying?

Hi 🙂
I am a college student and am thinking about buying an iPad recently. However, I am not sure if it is a good idea. I already have a laptop (that works..technically) and can definitely survive without an iPad. But I like it a lot and think that it may be easier to carry around (I move around quite a bit) and store/retrieve information from. (Plus, it will help save the environment if I use it instead of paper 😛 (joking)).
Another issue is that I am guessing that the apps will probably cost more than the device itself if I want it to efficiently replace my laptop (with the need to write essays, time management, etc.).
I would truly appreciate your feedback (especially if you had bought the device,etc) and thank you for your time. 🙂
