    Probably the last thing i'd want to run on an iPad is Win95..
    Are we talking about the same Win95? You know the one that Microsoft released and was a great success...NOT

    If the code is all sorted for a decent PSX emulator, this iPad should be able to emulate it well. As far as PS2, no chance.

    Windows 95 and 2000 were designed to run on~200MHZ single core processors with 64MB of RAM. The A5 is a 1.2GHZ dual core. It would probably run windows 7 smoothly if you put it in a laptop (and were crazy).

    ARM is not x86. It's hard to compare them. I'd imagine it would run Win 2000 and probably XP pretty well though. Vista and 7, not so much.

    I have no idea either. Windows 95 was a huge success. It went mainstream in the business world. I remember people waiting in line for it to go on sale at midnight. Long before Apple had that kind of following. :D

    I'm wondering what the geekbench results would be for this new A5. The iPad 1 got about 430-450, so if we doubled that, you're venturing into Power Mac G5 territory (the 1.6 Ghz G5 got 922).
