    I'm looking to grab and iPad and sell my MacBook. I've done research on being able to use apps to get flas on the iPad. My last issue is being able to get movies and shows from my passport external HD to my iPad without a computer. Can this been done since the iPad doesn't have USB? Sorry if this has been asked before I wasn't able to find it with the search.

    Thanks in advance

    To add movies that didn't originate in iTunes (store) or your camera, you need a computer to sync them. Don't give up your Mac.

    You could use something like Dropbox, but you'd still need the computer to get the movie from your drive to Dropbox.

    No. If your on iOS 5, you can sync any purchased music from iTunes through iCloud. But with all the stuff your wanting to do, your best bet is keeping the Mac. A iPad can't replace a Mac.
