I have owned 3 ipads in the 2 years that they have been out. I love the form factor but I always get frustrated with how slow they are to load pages. The ipad 2 was a step in the right direction, but still laggs behind any decent computer in rendering a page, and wifi throughput. I got rid of my ipad 2 a few months ago. While perusing the thread with ipad retina wallpapers, I noticed that it took a good 2-3 seconds to render the photos on my macbook air. This was on a 30 mbps fiber line. Unless they have really, really bumped up the horsepower, and ram on the ipad I'm afraid that it will lag terribly trying to push all those pixels. I'm a devoted apple fan, and I will be preordering for day one. My main wish even over the display, was for faster browsing. Click some of these wallpapers with your ipad and see how long it takes to load. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16352168/iPad Retina Wallpapers/Lion.png http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16352168/iPad Retina Wallpapers/Floating Leaves.png http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16352168/iPad Retina Wallpapers/Eagle & Waterfall.png Imagine if every page took that long. I really hope that they don't put the cart infront of the horse here.
