...is slow compared to a laptop, as we all know. Doesn't really bother me, my iPad 2 usage is almost entirely when I'm out and about, browsing/media/comics/rss reading etc and it's a wonderful device for that purpose. I use an mba and a beastly gaming rig at home. Question though, regarding browsing specifically; what is it exactly that prevents it from being like for like with an average computer? CPU? While a dual core arm isn't really comparable to a desktop cpu, I thought we'd be beyond the point where the cpu would hold back processing a webpage, or am I wrong? RAM? I understand the limited capability of the iPad holding previous pages in RAM, makes sense, but again surely this isn't holding back the initial processing of a webpage? Just curious is all. Like I say, this isn't a whinge, I'm just interested and wonder when/if an iPad will deliver essentially the same browsing speed of an average comp.
