Only 1 GHz

Tim Bray wonders (well, wondered a while ago) about the excellent perceived performance of the iPad at 'only' 1Ghz.


1 GHz actually seems like quite a lot to me. 1000 times an Apple ][, 40 times a NeXT, and the latter was driving a megapixel display. I guess we have gotten used to wasted cycles.
