Well, ultimately you have control as to where you put it....

Ultimately, I think it's a collaboration between independent will and external forces. Maybe a gorilla really loved that finger.

Surfing the net isn't the same light workload it used to be. Websites are so complex now with so much content to process that there is a noticable performance difference now with slower hardware. The ipad seemed way too slow for me (even just going on the internet) given its pricetag.

You've actually used one? If so, when and how? The impressions I got from reading reviews by people who were at the iPad announcement event was that it felt extremely snappy.

No, haven't tried it. My impression is based on video watching Jobs demo it. I watch him access various sites and webpages and see how long it takes for them to load. Just felt and seemed to me that I can get that kind of internet surfing speed for a fraction of the cost right now. It is small and sleek with long battery life, but that's pointless IMHO if it's slow. I'd give up a bit of the battery life for a faster processor. Is the battery replacable or is the iPad a disposable product?

What type of processor does it have? I be surprised that was the bottleneck in loading web pages. How fast did is seem when loading other aps. Maybe I’ll check youtube, I’ll bet someone has posted the demo.

It's a custom Apple SoC (they're calling it the A4, for some reason), but scuttlebutt on arstechnica is that it's based on an ARM Cortex A8.

Off the top of my head it uses some uber low power (hence the long battery life) 1Ghz chip.
