    Just got the ipad2 today..after installing some of the apps i had on ipad1... I wanted to see how they perform in safari....

    I did see youtube videos how ipad2 loads faster etc...

    BUT my ipad1 loaded faster in almost every website... Tried cnn, la times, chicago tribune, ny times.. Apple.com...etc...

    Ipad1 is 32gb wifi...ipad2 16gb wifi...

    Cleared web cache etc... Both ipads are using google public dns's...

    The only difference is my ipad1 is ios 4.3.1 , ipad 2 is 4.3.2

    Has anybody faced any slowdown on 4.3.2?

    What could be the problem?

    Dont tell m 32 gigs are faster than 16 gigs...

    Try a hard reset on the iPad 2

    Home and lock 10 secs

    Report back

    If no then "you're holding it wrong" ;)

    Try getting closer to your wifi router and see if that makes a difference. My iPad 2 is faster than my older one, but its wifi connection doesn't seem as good. So at times my wife gets faster load times on the older one than I do on the newer one.

    I don't have my iPad yet, so I can't comment on the difference between iPad and iPad2.

    However, I have a 7-year-old PC with some old AMD single-core 1.8mhz processor, running WinXP/IE6. I also have a brand-new PC with the late$t Intel i7 CPU running Win7/IE9.

    The old PC is a LOT faster when I'm just browing the internet. (except for opening YouTube videos) :)

    Do you have the exact same stuff loaded on both iPads? What about multitasking? Be sure to close every background app on both before you do your benchmark.

    I don't know if the 32GB vs 16GB has anything to do with anything, but I know when my iPhone is close to full on storage capacity, it runs a LOT slower.
