Ok so my mother has an older original iPad running ios build something like 3.2. Her computer is not in optimal condition. Needs various work performed on it. Amongst other things may need a fresh install of windows as well as a replacement HD and who knows, maybe some new ram chips. I already spent several hours just getting it to run somewhat more optimally. It's not the specs of the machine so much as the lack of maintenance that has been performed on it. My laptop is more or less the same specs, just with a better graphics card, but never given me any problems However, given how poorly her comp is running, I don't wan it anywhere near trying to update her iPad. Can I just bring my laptop over, temporarily authorize her itunes account on my computer, backup her iPad download and install the update on her iPad, and then when everything is said and done, just switch the account on my own itunes back? I haven't made any itunes purchases other than apps and I don't think she has either, so music purchases and what not are not an issue. I am just trying to find an easy solution to updating her iPad with the minimum fuss in the mean time, until I can get a chance to get her comp back in a satisfactorily functional state. Thanks in advance.
