    The iPad battery is 6600mAh, compared to 4000mAh in the Galaxy Tab. It's a BIG battery.
    That is How much every individual iPad component weigh:
    1. Aluminum back 138 grams
    2. Battery 148 grams
    3. LCD 153 grams
    4. Glass (and frame) 193 grams
    5. Speaker: 17 grams
    6. Main board: 21 grams
    7. Everything else: 27 grams

    Battery life is a HUGE draw for me. Well said that a device isn't truly wireless if you have to plug in every few hours. iPad is the only portable computer I've had that I use unplugged exclusively. Add in access to all the apps that are useful, as well as ones that are just plain fun, & ability to surf the internet make it all over what rocks for me.

    You have to remember though that one of the advantages of the iPAD, is that it doesn't have multi-tasking. So you don't leave in the background something that is running the processor and the memory, and force power leak.
    With all these new tablets running video in the background, the battery wouldn't hold for long.
    I personalty prefer long battery life, with no "true" multi-task

    With my ipad used i have noticed that most of the time I use it while it is connected to the charger and so the battery life will not bother me so much. The reason why I am getting excited with playbook is that it can play flash games, it still looks like a smooth user experience and has no iTunes. I am also hoping that playbook will be truly a tablet computer with ability to connect my mp3 players, hard drives, cameras and other USB devices. Maybe if iPad 2 will allow connecting through USB then I might consider not getting the playbook. But flash games and no iTunes sounds really tempting.
