There are posts all over here about what the iPad needs to have next. 1GB RAM, retina display, better cameras, etc. All of those are well & good, but they are not true game changers for the iPad, just like making it thinner & faster was not really a game changer. To me, the iPad will enter the next level when it can run a slim version of OSX. Think MacBook Air without the keyboard. It breaks the reliance on the App Store, gives you access to the file system, and eliminates most of the other things that differentiate the MacBook line from the iOS devices. I know this is not going to happen anytime soon, and the logistics of doing it are crazy, but to me, it is probably my biggest wish list item for Apple.
