    Well I have an iPhone and alot of apps for it. Some have updates to include iPad support when it comes to screen size and some haven't. When I sync my iPad is there a way to prevent the ones that don't have iPad support to not sync? I honestly don't remember which had support and which don't since I have so many apps.

    I don't think so

    , you could search the app an read iTunes description to find out, or just sync them and test of they don't then delete them

    If you manually manage your apps, you can select only the ones you want to sync with your iPad. I didn't have any problems last night selecting and syncing only the apps I wanted on my iPad. I know for one app, it told me it wasn't compatible with my iPad and didn't sync it. For anything else, you can just delete it off your iPad if it's not working right, like ariarch said.

    Pentium dual core? lol that's very outdated and 2ghz is rather slow, no wonder itunes takes hours to sync

    Yeah I guess thats the only way to do it. Sync the ones I want, guess I have to check each and every app to see if there was an iPad update for it.

    Just because it takes along time doesn't mean your computer is slow, if you have like 500 or so apps it takes about that long to sync.
