I'm merely bringing up a point, I didn't forget anything. I've said it before in other threads that got closed and I'm not going to repeat myself here, but truth is the TouchPad does more at any given moment in time, than the iPad.

If you open a new link on the iPad in a new browser window (if it even allows it), the iPad will suspend the entire browser window. on the TouchPad, it only suspends loading of DOM elements. in other words, your page is still downloading and loading in the background.. don't believe me? try it for yourself
I wish it was true though, since one of the things that really bother me with the Touchpad is the apparent lack of multitasking in the browser: If I open another site in a different card, it only starts rendering it when I switch cards, instead of doing it instantly/in the background like on Android and iOS.
This is the first valid argument I have seen thus far.

Ahh, I guess that would explain why the TP scores so low on the Sunspider test...
