That is to be expected. A lot of computers (especially older ones) generally do not provide enough power to their USB ports to charge the iPad at a sufficient rate - it may still be charging slowly, and should be a bit quicker if the iPad's screen is off (if you leave it for a while and then disconnect it from your computer you may find that it's battery percentage has gone up). The wall charger is usually the most efficient way to charge the iPad.

If you reference this article http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4060 you will see the following Information listed near the top of the article explaining why the iPad is showing as 'Not Charging' when connected to the computer.
'Note: Some USB 2.0 ports and accessories do not provide enough power to charge iPad. When this occurs the message "Not Charging" appears in the status bar next to the battery icon.'
Basically, the computer is able to charge devices like an iPhone or an iPod via a USB connection to the computer, but does not supply enough power to charge an iPad. At best, if you leave the iPad asleep and do not use it when connected to the computer, it may charge the iPad very slowly depending on whether it is connected to a 'high power' USB port or not. That is a best case scenario, but it's just the reality of having a high powered device attempting to charge through a USB port that has limitations on how much power it can provide. So what you are experiencing (although inconvenient), is normal and you may get different results when connecting it to a different computer if you happen to land on a high powered USB port when you connect it because I am guessing the ones you have connected it to at this point were not. I hope that takes the mystery out of it.....;)
