I love the ipad but After using the iPhone 4 the ram really DOES make difference. The iPad stutters and gets real low on ram easily. Causing scrolling web pages to result in that transparent background glitch. Also making it reload all the pages when you come back to them. This doesn't happen on the iPhone 4 everything is fast and smooth. I know the jokes on us cause come April well all be buying the new one to get the more ram. But they should have started the iPad with 512mb of ram.
