    The iPad uses as frugal 256 of ram whereas win7 needs a minimum of 1gb (yes I know some have managed with 512 but that's masochism.....)

    Also win7 is cursor based whereas iOS is touch based.

    Sort of like wanting to put a diesel truck engine in a Miata.

    Earlier this year They announced they that Citrix was going to offer a product that would let you run Windows 7 via virtualization. It hasn't shipped yet.

    Using iTeleport (a VNC iPad app) you can control and view a Windows 7 desktop. It's kind of like running Windows 7 on an iPad. :)

    There have been tons of remote apps for the iphone and iPad.

    Check out one called WinAdmin. Works great, but this is just access to a remote desktop its not running windows on the device like the OP asked about.

    Totally awesome link to the Team Viewer app!! I just installed it an it is a breeze. And furthermore, and as Drew Carey says (well actually the announcer Rich Fields says it), the price is right.

    But technically, the iPad is not running Windows. It is just painting a picture on my iPad's screen of what the host computer is doing.

    EDIT: I am 53 and I don't use terms like "totally awesome" very often!

    I am pretty happy with the teamviewer app. It is free (huge plus) and will do what I had considered buying logmein for.
