    Looking at buying an ipad this weekend, but I need to know something.

    Does the ipad have a usb port for importing my music , videos and movies from my pc ?

    If not, is it easy to do this wirelessly ?
    I have a sony laptop.

    No, it doesnt have a USB port for copying media over.

    You can sync your music over wireless (through iTunes and wifi sync), but you're better off plugging it in to your laptop and copying the music through iTunes - it'll be a lot quicker than over wifi.

    The dock connector (it's the only port on the iPad)

    The iPad comes with a cable that will connect the iPad to the USB port on your PC. Once it is connected, start iTunes and then you can put your music, video, photos, books, or any other media, on your iPad.

    You don't need to connect with the cable, syncing can be done by wifi, but the first time will be faster if you have a lot of content to transfer to your iPad.

    You should really spend some time at the Apple site and research. Tech specs list all the connectors.
