    Default Can windows run on iPad?
    I was wondering whether windows can run on iPad the same way they run on any other apple device - besides iPhone of course. Can I use bootCamp, VMware fusion or Parallels to install windows on iPad????
    Anybody?

    no, the closest you can get is using a vnc app to remotely login to a windows computer.

    The hardware in the iPad just isn't built for much of an operating system. For example, iOS is such a lightweight operating system; it's all geared toward running apps. Everything is flash memory too no HDs, it's all meant to be quick, light computing. Although some of the apps out there are pretty powerful and do suck a lot of juice, they're not anything near as intensive as a Windows OS.

    True, the iPad has 256MB ram, not enough for windows 7 or vista as it requires 512mb min. Also, boot is locked.

    Not for long... ;-) though this won't necessarily allow windows, it would be interesting to see android on mi tablet.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    Possibly dual booting anyone?

    Exactly, it would be sweet to get a custom ROM of Android on iPad, to have the best of both worlds, even though it isn't an even split if ya know what I mean

    You want to install Windows that will not even start up or keep crashing on your iPad?
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    Run LogMeIn Ignition. It remote connects into your Windows (Xp, Vista, 7) or OSX Computer. Easy and fast to use.
