Many people who are brand new to purchasing an apple product still believe that processor speed and ram are somehow comparable to other products or even relevant to the purchase. Apple (recent as of post-2000 era) does not release a product that isn't guaranteed to work smoothly. CPU and RAM are irrelevant. Compare actual usage. The os's of apple are so much better than the competition that apple has been selling hardware to accompany it's software for longer than most competitors have been in the computing industry.
In the end, Os efficiency makes all the difference. Don't believe me? Compare your iPhone four to that motorola brick or the htc drywall.

Im constantly running low on RAM on my i4 having to clean **** out of RAM with SB settings and kill everything in the background of multitasking which IMO is ridiculously implemented.

Hardware-wise they're all pretty much the same, tho most Tablets have better camera than iPad.
But as StealthBravo said, it's all about the software
I think it's a testament to iOS that it started out as a Phone OS, and was so easily scalable for a Tablet Device, the same cannot be said for Android, they had to go back and design Honeycomb specifically for Tablets.

Honestly I'll stick with the ipad2 for now. In about a year or so after honeycomb matures I will more than likely be switching as it is apparent apple will always be inside the "apple box" regarding features (we tell consumers what they want, not the other way around). I am a huge apple fan however if the OS was already a little more mature I would probably go with the xoom as I prefer to decide what should and shouldn't go on my tablet which I fully intend to replace the bulk of my pc activities eventually. Also the whole dongle thing is a real fly in the ointment.

I still don't know which could work for me, I study online and the University use sometimes flash slices to show some part of the module. Sometimes they record sound etc for (Logic 9 class) etc. Its kind of risky for me buy Xoxo and take the chance.

Then Ipad 2 is the way to go!! Don't get me wrong I'm all Mac, I have OSX as my main platform. Just dealing with adobe flash problem. =(

Why the **** would you Need a flash on the camera on an iPad? Who the **** takes pictures and videos while holding a giant *** iPad? Honestly the only use for the camera is FaceTime which I'm glad apple only showed at the event yesterday. Get a damn camera or use your cellphone camera to take pictures >_<
