    Good find! It was funny reading the comments on that article. The higher resolution on the Xoom hurt it's score in the benchmarking. Oh well, A Major win for IPad 2. Makes me want one even more now. So the 9X graphics of ipad1 was a true statement. I can only imagine the type of games that are possible with graphics and scores lkke that. 512mb ram is sufficient enough for ipad2.

    I was looking at that too. The tests basically destroy the Xoom.

    To be frank, I wasn't expecting to win any benchmark tests because I think that the total experience with something so personal as a tablet transcends mere specs.

    But I sure feel better knowing that it is also very competitive from another view.

    I just saw this exact benchmark over at the Xoom site and they called it bullshit. Of course they would, though.

    I could not really tell you why they said this, though. They sure do not like our iPads over there!

    Goodness. It's almost like it's personal.:D

    See... this is why we try to protect you Marie! There are some evil people out there with very bad attitudes! You should just stay here where it is nice and warm and fuzzy.

    If you missed this, still makes me laugh:
    "The Xoom tablet is trim, light, and very pretty ... but when you place it next to the iPad 2, it looks as though it was designed and built by angry Soviet prison labor instead of by Motorola." andy ihnatko in chicago sun-times."
    In a later article:
    "The 2011 tablet computer season has barely begun. Even so, I’ll go out on a limb and say that this isn’t going to be Google’s year, or HP’s, or RIM’s, or anybody else but Apple’s. At this point I’ve tried every major 2011 tablet -- released or unreleased -- and I can’t come up with any reasonable scenario in which I’d recommend anything other than an iPad. “You tried it and hated it” is one reason to shop elsewhere, I suppose. Another is “Your eccentric uncle died and left you ten million dollars, on the proviso that you marry a woman named Vladimir, not buy any Apple products, and eat an entire leather sofa.”

    People talking about the screen resolution killing the xoom, there is not enough of a pixel difference to account for the less than half graphics performance. So there ya go

    Even if you do take into account the differences between screen resolutions, you are still going to see a 40% difference in performance (as opposed to the 46% difference comparing the raw numbers).
