Hey, I am new to the Apple world and I have a few questions.. Yall are probably going to think I am a tard but its okay.. The only 2 products I have owned from Apple are the second generation iPhone and an early iPod.. Now, I am looking to further my Apple experience buy purchasing an iPad.. I use my HP Laptop for my iTunes and so far, it seems to be able to handle everything pretty well. Since I was buying an iPad, I was going to start purchasing various movies and possibly TV shows.. I understand that these movies often up to 2 or 3 Gigs in size.. A couple of questions.. Do you suggest that I buy some sort of external hard drive to store these movies on?? Is that recommended?? If so, which type should I buy?? Also, does it affect how I view these movies?? Can I just hook up the hard drive to my Laptop, open iTunes, and simply move the movies from the hard drive to my iPad?? How does that work?? Also, is there a special way to get these movies to my TV?? I know there used to be a thing called "Apple TV" but that is no longer sold and honestly, I didnt want to get one.. Right now, I just use the chord from my Laptop to my TV.. Is there a better way to do it or is that how I am going to have to do it?? For example, if I go to a friends house, can I simply load the movie to my iPad and play it from there or do I need my Laptop at their house?? Thanks so much!!!
