Ok, so my "household" laptop died this morning. Its an old powerbook G4 17". I think it is probably the HD that died. Don't think it is worth fixing. My question is, my wife uses this for email, web, facebook, paying bills. I know the ipad can do all of the above, my only concern is the online bill paying. Some we do via our bank's site, others we do on that particular vendor's site. Is flash a common tool used in any of the payment type pages? If this won't work, I am going to be looking at a macbook or an refurb. Thanks!
