    Ive been playing with this thing non stop since I got home at 6:00. It was at 75% out of the box and is now at 41% at 11:00. Five hours of straight playing around and it has only dropped that much. Awesome.

    For me the batterylife is apple's "secret sauce" behind the iPad.
    Being able to use a device all day long without thinking about charging is redefining portablity. It also gives their competitors their biggest challenge.

    Coolness. Battery life is, I think, the key hardware reason for the iPad's success.

    Sure, some netbooks claim up to 10 hours as well. But the second you so much as fart, let alone run anything with Flash, you'll be looking for an AC outlet.

    I came home last weekend Friday evening from the office with 100% charge. Used it all weekend - surfing, games, email, video, even a bitof GarageBand - right up to Sunday evening, and it was still holding 19%.

    I streamed Netflix yesterday like a marathon to test the battery. It was 4% after 10hrs and 25mins.

    If you have seen the internal pics of the iPad, the biggest and most unmissable components are the twin batteries. By comparison the processor board and other peripherals comprise just a small portion of the internal components.
