Which tablet is she getting? Most tablets can exchange information with a pc. If you want to sync documents then DropBox is very useful. Email's can be read on the tablet and computer.

By the way welcome to the forum. Perhaps when she has the tablet then you can come back and ask away. People here are rarely stumped by a problem. I don't think that she will encounter too many problems. In the meantime have a look at DropBox or Microsoft SkyDrive.

Other programs will go on W8 but not RT. I'm not really familiar with RT but I do know that the full office program does not run on it. I understand that you have to use an app.

Woolwell, yes the Samsung Galaxy is an Android device and a mighty fine one too in my opinion. Samsung do have one Windows 8 model Click Here

I can now let you know that the tablet the wife has received is a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 but it does not have windows, what do friends on here think of them.
