Don't get me wrong, I'm thoroughly pleased with the iPad, in fact I think it's amazing. I think no matter what, the iPad will perform flawlessly, smoothly and be fantastic. But I've thought, why would they put the same GPU that's in the iPhone 3GS in the iPad? By my thinking, using a better GPU would allow for games to be built with even greater graphics quality, which is really what I look for in 3D games. Is Apple thinking of better battery life? Has it made changes to the GPU that haven't been discovered yet? It also leads me to my second question, how come we can see much better quality graphics in apps now if the GPU is the same (X-Plane, N.O.V.A HD etc...) I'm not really worried about the 256MB of RAM, since the iPad will run just fine. That surprised me though, I expected 512MB. Any thoughts?
