Hello here, I just joined. I am looking to get an iPad2 and use it to download HD video from my camcorder, edit it, view it, play it on my TV and eventually put them on an external drive. I have been doing some reading on this and it seems I should be able to do everything (with available accessories), except off load to external storage. So, I have two questions: 1. Is my assumption correct? 2. How would I be able to off load the movies? My other alternative would be the Macbook Air, but then I lose portability and I don't really need another full blown laptop. Thanks much.
