Hi guys..I feel like this is a silly question since I've already bought and sold an iPad 2 and have an iPhone 4. Anyway..my mom's computer died today...won't even power up. I suggest she just go buy an iPad 2 and a docking keyboard. She only needs it for banging out occasional emails and surfing the web. My question is...I can't recall if my iPad was functional out of the box...will it work OK between now and IOS5 when it can be updated over the air? Or do I need to sync it up and with my macbook? Also I doubt she has an itunes account..can she set one up on her iPad out of the box? Thanks so much for any replies.
