    I received my second Ipad today, this was a replacement and I have speed tested it several times and it will not run even close to as fast as my laptop. Is everyone else seeing the same results?

    i sure hope your talking internet/network speeds and not hardware/cpu speeds......because if your talking hardware/cpu speeds then it SHOULDN'T run as fast as your laptop or desktop.....

    The iPad Internet speeds on my wifi at home are very close to those of my Mac book air and my Sony desktop. Maybe 1Mbps less on average.

    Yea I am using speedtest. Mine is not even close but my ipod touch and my droid are both close. Maybe I got another bad Ipad.

    Maybe you don't know what your talking about.

    The iPad isn't going to have network transfer speeds equal to a computer with 4+ times the computing power of an iPad.

    However, my iPad has no problem getting 17.5Mbit/sec down and 8Mbit/sec up on my FiOS at home via 802.11n.

    try pouring water into the speaker holes. that usually fixes network speeds.

    Ok, that made a lot of sense! That's the stupidest answer I have ever heard. I gave u two different devices that are running at the same speed as my computer and just because my iPad is not I don't know what I'm talking about?

    I don't think you got another bad iPad. If you had the problem on two, you should look somewhere else.

    Maybe you should return it just to check your theory out. If the third one is slow as well, you should go in with a baseball bat to the store and bash some displays because they only give you the bad ones.

    I actually figured out what was causing my problem a few minutes ago. Interferance! Everything is fine now.

    I don't have mine yet, but I was having this discussion today with the lady at work who has been letting me play around with hers. It is very fast, and she says it's faster than any of her home PCs.

    Mine was running slow as hell, but I think it is mostly my campus's wifi, it is often terrible even on my MBP. I have not tried it elsewhere yet.
