  • iFixit iPad 2 Teardown Reveals Few Surprises


    The good people at iFixit have completed their teardown of Apple's new iPad 2. And the broad consensus in response to the tablet's disembowelment is clear. Indeed, there are few surprises to be found beneath the hood of the new iPad 2. As chronicled by the iFixit team in their teardown and subsequent highlight video (see above), the most attention-worthy discoveries of the teardown are largely limited to the dwindling sizes of iPad parts and components.

    As we all know, the iPad 2 is thinner and sleeker than its predecessor. What the teardown shows is that the new tablet's glass screen is markedly thinner in particular, a development that similarly lends to the reduced weight of the refreshed tablet. Conversely, only one day removed from the device's launch, it's certainly far too early to adequately assess whether the newer, thinner glass display will prove less durable than the first-gen iPad's display.

    In addition to pointing out that globs of glue are used this time around to keep much of the iPad 2 in place, iFixit confirms that the iPad 2 delivers 512 MB of RAM, a dual-core processor that appears to be from Samsung, and the tablet's new battery (a 3.8V, 25 watt-hour unit) represents only a minimal improvement over the first iPad's battery (24.8 watt-hours). To read the full report from iFixit (and its less-than-groundbreaking findings), click here or check out the video posted above.

      Isn't the iPad 2's ram memory the same speed as the iPhone 4?

      I would have bought this new iPad if it was Retina supported. There just aren't enough new reasons to get it.

      Well I had no doubt about the ram, however I am a bit disappointed in the camera...

      It's all good though


      And yes they are the same, it's the dual core that's different.^

      Not even the upper class laptops right now support resolutions close to 2048x1536, and it would take a, what, "Apple A10"? to handle the strain from something at that resolution.

      The fact that you decided not to buy it because of "No retina display" is just ******* retarded.

      i think he said lower cuz the original question was if ram speed is same or not. Not the size of the ram.
