    Many of those apps will get taken out of memory anyway....iOS removes background apps depending on function (if they aren't the type to multi-task) they will be removed. That when they show on that list it is for quick launching....sort of like a history of recently used apps.

    So you are saying that removing them or not in the multitasking bar (recent list) is immaterial as they will not occupy memory?

    I agree with you. 1gb is way way more than will be utilized by all but the most heavy users or someone that never ever stops any of their applications.

    All apps in your multi task bar are recently used apps, they are not running although there are exceptions with some apps, navigation and location based apps being an example of these. IOS will suspend apps within a few seconds when you tap the home button, but they can still be using some memory as to be ready to launch again when you need. When you launch another app which is memory intensive, IOS will kick these apps out of memory to free up more memory for your new app to run. They will still be shown in your multitask bar even though they can be totally inactive and not using memory at all.

    Well thats how it is meant to work but some apps do not behave like they should which is why it is a good idea to clear out your multi task bar regularly just so that you don't have a problem with apps crashing because of a memory issue. Hope this helps you.

    Even though 1gb may seem and even be enough it certainly has nothing to do with it just being a tablet, which is why some of the newer Android tablets/phones are now coming with 2gb and the extra gig is certainly making a difference.

    As a former jailbreaker I do remember that only having 256 megs was a cripplier on the iPad 1 and even 512 meg on the iPad 2 would get taxed quite often. The way to test was by having the available ram constantly showing on the top right bar along side the battery percentage. And on the iPad 1 it was really easy to drop it below 15 meg and thus start getting some random app closures.

    The iPad 2 was a lot better but not perfect by any means and by jumping in and out out apps you can drop the available ram into the danger zone. As for the 1gb of the newer iPads I can't say since I have remained stock however with the retina display, larger footprint of apps, etc. I would imagine the iPad 3 to be on par with the ipad 2 and as to how much the improved graphics and processor have helped the iPad 4, I would hope that it has been a great help but would need some jailbreakers to test both the iPad 3 and 4 for comparison.
