    If it runs smoothly then I'm not disappointed.

    Nope. My iPad 2 runs great. Only prob I'm having is due to the app. (words with friends HD isn't multitasking supportive. Has to reload every time I switch, but that has nothing to do with ram.) iOS operates well under the hood. Not a RAM hog and utilizes everything great. Other tablets need more RAM cause their OS isn't built very well, imo.

    Different experience for me. 5 pages open: engadget, 2 macrumors page, google search result, YouTube m. I watched two videos returned back to each page and everyone of them reloaded. :(

    Of course you would always like to have more memory but I have been very happy so far. I didn't have an iPad 1 but I am really impressed with the iPad 2

    I did a similar test and nothing reloaded. So far no memory issue for me.

    +1. User experience is increasingly becoming more and more important and hardware specs are nice, but if there's a lousy user experience, than its not worth all the shiny parts under the hood. I know of several people, myself included, who did not buy a Xoom because of the poor user experience with the user interface. As far as I can tell, the current iteration of Honeycomb is not up to snuff. The only candiate with a reasonably better user experience would be HP's TouchPad, but since that tablet is not officially released yet and we have only seen demos, iOS holds the cake for now.
