    But all is OK. I found an old PowerPC Mac in my closet. That thing ROCKs this benchmark.

    So I'm good.

    If this ends up in one of RIM's marketing presentations, I'm going to cry.

    This is completely disheartening.

    My iPad 2 only scored 1749.7 and my new(er) MacBook Air only scored 481.5!

    I'm done with crapple products, going to sell both on CL for $1 each, OBO of course

    So digging the grave! The PlayBook 4G makes this true>?!?>?>>

    BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE hands-on -- Engadget

    "The 1.5GHz processor (we're led to believe it's a TI OMAP 4460) does make a difference, although it's normally what you might call an improvement by a thousand cuts over the original 1GHz chip. RIM's interface is just a little bit more fluid, apps are ready just a little bit sooner, games like Need For Speed: Undercover are just a bit faster. Where we noticed the clock speed hike is in browsing -- and by a wide margin. Running the SunSpider web browser benchmark, we saw the JavaScript processing time cut by 35 percent versus the WiFi version to 1,397ms (PlayBook 4G), making it faster not just than the WiFi PlayBook but the iPad, the Nexus 7, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and even the quad-core Galaxy S III smartphone. Our personal experience also showed that the browser didn't have much trouble keeping up with complex pages. We're not sure what RIM slipped into the PlayBook 4G LTE's diet to make its browsing so quick, but we'd like to try some."

    Note that I'm getting 2098 on my older wifi Playbook running OS 2.1 beta while my wife's PB is getting 2214 under OS 2.0.1.688. So there is definitely some optimization going on in software in addition to the faster OMAP CPU in the 4G LTE model. Also, for comparison my Acer Iconia Tab running Chrome on ICS 4.0.3 is getting 2010 (or 2307 using the regular Android browser), which seems to be middle of the pack for Android tablets.

    Bottom line: The wifi PB is holding its own against the non-fruity competition while the new 4G model is smoking everything in sight.

    How does the checkerboard affect you in any way?

    PlayBook OS is really, I believe, the most powerful tablet OS in the market nowadays...

    The only problem, RIM is just lost i.e. mismanagement... now, imagine if Apple or Samsung got QNX, it'll be landslide...
