    According to the dissections, the iPad only has 256 mb of core memory. While most laptops are dealing with minimums of 2 GB of RAM, it was not too long ago that most computers would max out at 256 MB. Do you wish that it had more available?

    Since the iPad does not multitask I'm not sure what benefit we would get from more RAM.

    I'm not a computer programmer but wouldn't it be possible for the "new" OS (4.0?) to use some of the flash memory to run 2 or 3 aps at the same time?

    There are mixed information on about the amount of ram the ipad has, some sites say 256mb but this site that lists the components of the ipad and the costs and what the part is says 2gb

    You can just look and see but I don't think we can really say how much ram memory this has until later.
