    I finally synced my iPad with my MacBook Pro today, and although it's almost done (I think), it's been syncing for over 15 minutes. I haven't had an iPhone for about 8 months now, and while I remember the syncing for that to be slow as well, I filled the darn thing. My iPad? It's only got 2 gigs of stuff on it.

    How is everyone else's syncing times? And how much is it syncing?

    Did you still have all your iPhone apps on the computer? It automatically thinks you will want to sync them all.

    The first time it can take awhile depending on how much you have to sync, after that it's quick.

    Mine was incredibly fast. Music synced over significantly quicker than on my iPhone or iPod touch.

    Mine synched as fast as my Touch....maybe a little faster. I plan to resynch the music to 128 AAC....THAT is slooooooooow, I am going to have to take care of that before I go to bed.

    Weird. The sync to which I was referring was my second sync, and it was horribly slow. Subsequent syncs have been zippy.

    That's because the second sync us the first sync to include backing up.

    It's pretty easy to download an app that is sort of big, and then backing that up will take a long time the first sync after that.
