Unable To Charge From Laptop?

I've been trying to charge my iPad from laptop since I purchased my iPad months ago. I own both a Mac Book Pro and a Windows PC. Neither of them will charge the iPad. It seems the only way to charge it si to plug the iPad into an AC adpater. For me this greatly dimishes the portablility.

Mac Laptop Charge It But Non Mac Won't?
wtf? This is especially true with the new iPad being a power hog. My friend has a 15" Mac laptop & I have an MSI GX740-235US. When my iPad is plugged in to my laptop, it says Not Charging but if there's nothing running in the background and I leave it asleep it charges, whereas his Mac charges whether or not I use it. Just not at a very fast speed.

Set It Up And Charge It All Through My Windows Laptop?
I'm brand new here and I haven't got my iPad yet, its meant to be arriving on Tuesday but basically what I wanted to find out about was do you have to have a Mac to begin using the iPad, or can I just do it via the iTunes on my Windows laptop?

So basically is it possible to have an iPad and set it up and charge it all through my Windows laptop?

I charge my ipod using the same cable too, so it aught to be working. i have seen here that ipad does not charge well when connected to laptops. But i cannot understand why it wont charge when connected to the power outlet. should i use something else with my power adapter to convert the electricity.

Will Replace Laptop / Better Than Current Laptop Models?
When will the iPad become better than current average laptop models? By this I mean powerful enough to run full programs and software which could completely replace my current laptop? My laptop has replaced my desktop. Now, it's just a matter of time when a tablet computer will be good enough to perform all the tasks of my laptop.

Projector Wirelessly - Displaying On My Laptop Screen Since The Laptop Is Already Connected To The Projector
I'm a teacher that would love to use my new iPad in my classroom but if I can't project what's on the iPad wirelessly, I lose a great deal of the functionality of the apps I'm intending to use.

I have a 3rd generation iPad, a Dell laptop, and a Sanyo projector in my classroom. I've heard that an Apple TV box can accomplish this but I was wondering if there was a cheaper way. Ideally, having whatever is on my iPad displaying on my laptop screen since the laptop is already connected to the projector. I've been told there are simple solutions to accomplish that if I have an Apple laptop but that isn't an option for me.

Battery Charge Timing/how Long Should Charge At First?
I just got my ipad long do I need to charge the battery before I can use it. And I read that the battery should be completely run down once a month and recharged. I don't think I'll be using it enough to do that. What is the fastest way to run it down so that I can recharge.

Plug Into Charge Got Nothing - Won't Charge
I have the original iPad that currently only gets used by my students in my classroom to play math games. However, starting yesterday when I tried to plug in the iPad to charge I got nothing. Yes, I was using the 10W wall charger and have never used a computer USB port. I've never had a problem with this iPad in the 3 years that I've had it until today. I tried restarting the iPad but it still won't charge unless I plug it in and then turn it off. While it is powered off it will charge at a very slow rate taking anywhere from 8 to 10 hours to charge from 0 to 100%.

Charge Time - Charge Takes Very Long Time
The new iPad charge takes very long time. It takes twice as much time compare to iPad 2. I understand that new iPad has Built-in 42.5-watt-hour rechargeable lithium-polymer battery but why is the charger still 10 watts? I think this issue should be taken care of as soon as possible. Apple should replace all new iPad chargers with a new one. I am still using my iPad 2. I might actually return my new iPad back to Apple store untill this problem is fixed.

Getting Rid Of Laptop?
I am waiting on my iPad 3G and have decided to sell either my new 13" Macbook Pro or my old 17 in White iMac intel. It has been a hassle in the past with 2 complete operating systems with shared peripheral devices, wanting to load something on to an iPod and finding it synced to the opposite machine. So I am happy to be down to one main computer, question is which one?

Dumping Laptop For It
I searched but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.I would like to drop my MacBook and move to an iPad. I have a home iMac and iPhone to sync. Is there a tutorial for moving files to the iPad from the MacBook (Contacts, Calendars, work documents (Office&Apple), etc? Will I still be able to remotely control my iMac from the iPad? I have MobileMe also, but am not getting 3G because I don't like getting ripped off by AT&T.

Laptop Is Just A Desktop
The whole point of a laptop was take a desktop anywhere we want. Right? What has limit the laptop portability? Well, BATTERY LIFE!!! Grant, it is still portable, but it deters many from using as much as we like. Screen size is also a limit. 17 inch is just too big!! 15 is perfect. 10 inch is ok. Anything smaller is just too small. So, I am hoping the new macbook pro has a 10 hour battery life. The iPad is almost perfect for me.

Going To Replace Laptop?
But do you owners think its a laptop replacement? I've been eying an iMac because I feel I can be more productive sitting at a desk instead of laying in bed with my mbp. I really only browse blogs when im not sitting at my desk so this is why I figured it would be a good replacement.

As Laptop Replacement
First, I know this general question has been asked and discussed many times before. I've already read through several helpful threads about it, but a few questions remain. Skip down to "Questions" below if you're in a hurry. Our 4 year old original MacBook finally seems to have kicked the bucket this week. For the time being, my wife and I are sharing the Mac mini I'm using to type this, but that gets old pretty fast. Both with the lack of portability and with the one user at a time thing. So, what to do?

To Say Goodbye Laptop
For me, and probably a lot of other people, once I have my 3G Ipad, I will have very little use for my laptop. If I have heavy lifting to do, I will use my main computer. Once the public figures out the Ipad, and other tablet type products, I think the laptop sales will go way down.

Vs. Laptop For Basic Needs
Im seriously considering selling my 2008 2.2 macbook for an ipad. Heres why..

First off, I love my iphone and the UI. Multi-tasking never bothered me and if it did, 4.0 will change that.

Second, I cant wait for more magazines and newspapers to jump on board with dedicated e-versions, if they do. Does anyone know how many examples of print media will be on board in the short or long term?

I graduated college last summer and find that I only use my laptop for browsing the internet, playing music, uploading photos i take with my camera, and you tubing. Period. Seriously, thats all i've really been doing on it. None of the websites I typically visit involve flash, for the most part so visiting my favorite sites wouldnt be a challenge.

I figure if i really do need to type up a quick document or office type thing i can download and use pages/keynote/numbers for the ipad (haven't used it much except for typing and messing around with pages at an apple store). I never use my webcam, i dont watch or have any movies stored on my hard drive but i have a netflix account so i stream movies every once and a while, i know the pad has this ability.

The only time I ever use a USB was to charge my phone, since I always preferred to have important things emailed to me anyway. This actually brings up an important question. Is there a way to get all my documents I saved from college over the years from my macbook onto an ipad?

Using As A Laptop Substitute
I'm thinking of picking up an IPad to use for my commute to work and home. The primary uses will be Ipod and Book Reader, but, I would also like to use it as a drawing tablet. If I can't transfer drawings created to a laptop or desktop I'm not sure this feasible. Any suggestions

How To Replace Laptop
A little background. I had a two year old Dell laptop that Dell couldn't fix, so they refunded me $1300. Thats the short version.

So I bought an iPad and decided I would spend 800-900 on another laptop. Im a student in college, although I'll be getting a job in about a year. I have been thinking more and more that I should just skip the laptop and build a desktop. The iPad does pretty much all of my mobile needs quite nicely, to the point where I cannot see myself lugging around a laptop next semester.

I am worried about iWork though. I want to be able to rely on it. The fact that Keynote can't export to .ppt is disturbing. I do PowerPoints for classes, which of course need to be done in Office. I don't know why Apple pretends they are the industry leader in office productivity and thus can use their proprietary format only. Pages seems to be fine.. I don't need to be able to use weird fonts. My papers are generally professional, APA style documents, maybe with a chart here or there.

I guess my question is, do you think i am limiting myself by not getting a laptop? Will there be unforeseen consequences? Is there as much missing from iWork as people say and will Apple/another company make the iPad more work friendly? I just can't see myself using a laptop anymore and a desktop would mean a 24/7 reliable, VNC-able, video streaming, print serving replacement. And I mean Windows, by the way. My work will be in Psychology. and also, I'm not swearing off laptops completely.. I'm just trying to avoid kicking myself for it in the near future.

Not Charging Though Laptop
I have a MacBook Pro. I have an iPad.When I plug my iPad directly into my laptop it says Not Charging even though my laptop is on, awake and plugged into a power source and I have nothing else connected to it via USB.

I've read some things that this is because the iPad requires more mA than the 500 given out by the USB port. However when I check system profiler and click on iPad it says mA available is 500 and the current required is also now I'm confused...

IPad As A Laptop?
I know I've seen these threads on here and now that I need them, I can't find them.

My brother is looking to buy a laptop for his daughter for school. She is going into 8th grade I believe come this fall. For an 8th grader heck a freshman in HS for that matter, could one use an iPad instead of a laptop? I can't find the threads but I know that many here now use an iPad instead of a laptop.

take class notes/stylus word doc/spreadsheet - write reports - transfer docs from PC to ipad

anything else I'm missing here?

Desktop And Laptop Functions
So I've noticed a problem in the past few days.I have a setup on my desk where my MBP and my iPad share desk space. I find myself going back and forth between the two for various tasks, generally using the iPad as a desktop organizer while at my office, and doing technical designs and reviews on the MacBook.Lately though I find myself trying to pinch or drag objects on the MBP by reaching for the screen. I try to move objects around in a design only to realize nothing happened and having a "DOH!" moment before reaching for the mouse or touchpad.

Laptop Headaches Because Of Battery?
I have gone through 4 to 5 laptops!! Lol!! They all have been pc. My major complaints on all of them were battery life. I hate the idea of having to plug them in everywhere I go. Plus, I had to re-install windows a few times on each onoe of them. When I heard the iPad has a 10 hour battery life, it made me excited! I have checked the site and noticed some of the mbp has at least 7 hours of battery life. Guess, battery and chips gotten better on energy consumption. I cannot afford to get a new laptop, but the current is fine (except for battery life).

Use As A Remote Control For The Laptop
Just bought an iPad. No one at the Apple store knew how to use it so I'm stuck. I bought this to use as a remote control for the laptop. I installed iTeleport as recommended. I'm able to sort of connect with the network that has internet access but this method has so much lag that it flat out doesn't work for me. Can someone please outline the steps required to connect to the ipad using the Macbook Pro as a private network host (there will be no internet connection allowed so no using the gmail account)?
