Wow, you must have gotten different Touchpads in Oz! Out of the box, my Touchpad was nothing close to my iPad 2. Touch responsiveness, speed of the OS, weboage renderings, and so on... No where close to what you get on the iPad 2. And I won't bother commenting on the lack of apps or app development.

The browser still sucks, even the advanced one, web page rendering is still not as fast, the lack of apps is still killing me, but the ability to render Flash websites smoothly, to have true multitasking, the awesome email and FB notification system, use of the touchstone for recharging, to have a tablet that now runs about as fast as the ipad and an adjustable virtual keyboard for a $150 USD pricetag, has made the TP a great buy.
Does it match the current iPad, no. And when the iPad 3 is released, the Touchpad will really show it's age. But if CM9 allows for a dual boot into ICS, it will breath some fresh air into the TP!
