A friend of mine has decided to upgrade her Mac desktop and is considering also getting an ipad to use in other areas of the house. She's not very computer literate and relies on me for a lot of help. Since I'm a PC user and Mac illiterate, you can imagine what fun we have solving her problems. We usually wind up at the Apple store with me taking extensive notes. Living 2 hours apart only increase the fun. Anyway, I know there have been lots of posts about Mac and ipads which I skimmed over. So I have a questions: Can you access the Mac from the ipad and do work on the Mac? She uses MS Office on the MAC, will she have the same limited compatibility ability that we PC users do? If so, is there a MAC program that is more compatible with Pages, etc.?
