    One expects that this would have to outperform an iPad, since the price is equivalent. (Yes, I do know that's the >list< price). It is however, in the iPad ballpark.

    It won't outperform an ipad 2. The ipad 2 uses an underclocked exynos chip with a powerVR SGS 543.

    Heh, HP just sent me a coupon for $50 off due to being a Pre owner. Now I just need to get a job with them, and I can save $150!

    The display isn't near as concerning as the cpu. Qualcomm's dual cores are being stomped by Tegra 2, OMAP4 and Exynos chipsets.
