What I haven't seen in this discussion is whether or not the iPad supports OpenGL. Does it? I don't have one and I'm not inclined to spend time searching for that, simply because I have no desire to own an iPad. But, to all you iPad owners who believe this device can render SL, does it have the OpenGL implementation within it to do so?
All most all mobile devices support OpenGL ES 2.0. The only exception I can think of would be Windows Phone 7, but nobody buys that trash.

Might be a better way to run an Ipad with this new app http://desktop.onlive.com/ Although, SL would have to allow users to access SL in the cloud. Onlive also has a game service, so you won't need any fancy graphics chip.

It's not as easy as you might think.
An iPad or any tablet for that matter can't be compared to a pc or even a laptop. The entire viewer will have to be rewritten. For android there is one, mentioned in this thread.
It would be good for the SL community if there was an official tablet version, but I wouldn't keep my hopes up and if LL ever makes one, it won't be as fancy as the pc version.
Quad core graphics? A high end graphics card has thousands of cores. It doesn't mean anything since all those cores are completely different. A6X processor? That runs at speeds we had in mid range pc's about ten years ago.

You can remotely access your PC and run SL on your iPhone, iPad or iPod just fine.
In your App Store search "Splashtop 2 - Remote Desktop" ... the app costs about $4.99US per year. This will give you full access to your PC through any of your mobile devices ... and it works great, I rezzed a car from my inventory and drove it!
Took about 5 minutes from dwonloading the app, installing on my iPhone and iPad, download the programme on your PC adjusting a couple of settings on the PC ... done!
... of course, what ever you have displayed on your mobile device will then be displayed on your PC ... so you do have to be a little careful if anyone else has access to your PC so ya don't get caught doing something naughty
