    Easy setup, having one problem. Trying to sync my iPad apps to the iMac. I don't care about games, but I'd really like to get Pages and Print n Share d/l'd to the iMac.

    Can I do this without having to purchase them again?

    You can't use iPad apps on your Mac... You can save them on your Mac, but you can't run them.

    Pages for Mac is different than Pages for iOS

    Hmmmm, looks like they offer the Pages app for iMac.

    So how do I print from my iPad? I was able to do it to my PC.

    Happy to say most all my issues have been resolved. Printers, apps, address books, etc all good. Did have issues with transferring files and files not being recognized. But that is a PC to Mac issue. I did not realize that the same programs i.e. Avery Designer Pro, does not recognize on a Mac files that were created in PC.

    So a bit of a learning curve, but nothing so earth shattering. Love the iMac!

    Thanks to everyone that helped through the decision and switch over process.
