Just got my iPad last week.

Some questions.

1. Can you connect to iTunes on more than one computer? I originally set up the iPad on my desktop. Just now I connected to my laptop and selected 'manually manage music and videos' and it let me add movies and tones to the iPad.

2. Can you only add videos through iTunes? I have DiskAid but it didn't seem like it would let me add anything.

Pretty sure you can connect to more than one computer using the same iTunes account but I'm not sure what the limit is. I've connected to 2 different Macs in my house without an issue.

As far as video only through iTunes I'm not sure but guessing yes.

You can connect to two iTunes however you cannot sync with both fully – that's what I read and been told, I've never tried it. Pretty sure if you jailbreak you might be at the sync with as many as you want.

Thanks. I was surprised when it let me add the videos and tones because I could never connect my iPhone to more than my main computer.
