Hello,

 

I'm still trying to identify wich one between the ipad2 or the new-ipad will be perfect for my and wife use.

As you can imagine, the major point is about the battery.

 

- I've got a late 2010 macbook-pro, I can't identify if usb ports will be powerfull enough to charge the new-ipad. I've only read along the web "newer mac can, older can't". Can someone help me identify if late-2010 is an old or young enough macbook pro ?

 

- Is it technically and commercially possible that we'll see a "speedier" charger to come onto the market oneday ?

iPad, iOS 5.1

    Either iPad comes with its own 2A 10W wall charger. Use it to charge your iPad, not the computer.

    No.  You might have a fire hose charger but it's still connected to a garden hose iPad input connector that accepts no more than two amps.
