    I actually got hosed with that recently. I was happily monitoring my departments productivity via web client with the iPad, and a week after I got it they performed an upgrade; now the client only works with IE 6! I can't complain since the iPad is my personal device. No browser app I've tried can render the thing properly since the update.

    The connections are as fast but the renderings are slow as hell. So if it's as fast as your MacBook that just tells me that your MacBook is slow as hell too.
    Mine renders pages pretty instantly...at least as fast as my 8 core 10GB ram Mac Pro....

    Then it's an issue with Safari and your 8 core wouldn't make a difference. Because I can load a page INSTANTLY on my desktop and scroll to any single part of the page with no issue. When loading the forum on my iPad it loads but 75% of the screen is gray until you hover over that particular area.

    To those saying that the iPad has equal surfing power to your desktop here:

    There are one of two scenarios here - either the iPad's WiFi is garbage or the Speedtest app is garbage.

    I get .91MB/s download speed on my iPad.

    I get 8MB/s download speed on my desktop using the same WiFi connection.

    I think you mean 8Mb/sec (megaBIT not megabyte, hell of difference )

    Wired Desktop


    Wireless iPad

    iPad is slightly slower...but its because its wifi which adds a degree of latency.
