After a fresh helping of listener mail, Scott gives us his hands-on impressions of the new iPad. We discuss the brilliant new display, the size and weight differences from the iPad 2, and how this newest revision positions Apple in the tablet market. Then, we take a look at Ice Cream Sandwich running on Asus's Transformer tablets, and we examine Cyril's review of the half-tablet, half-smartphone Samsung Galaxy Note. Finally, Scott gives us the ins and outs of the impressive new GeForce GTX 680 from Nvidia.

Ivy Bridge RAM speed?(0:01:21) - from Pete:
"Thanks for answering my questions on last podcast. It really helped.one additional, the crew did not indicate what the default RAM speed of Ivy bridge would be. With RAM prices so low, I'd like to get that now if I can. In a recent article I read it will overclock RAM up to 2800, but I have seen little to nothing on the interwebs about the default speed. Thanks again, Pete in Maryland.quot;
SSD selection (0:03:08) - from JMC:
"Wanted thoughts about putting SSD on Sata 3G -intel with TRIM or Sata 6G -Marvel probably no TRIM. Crucial M4 Adrenaline cache SSD 50GB Plugged into ASUS U3S6 add in card. Marvel 9123 Sata 6 controller. From what I've read it is a real mess about if the Marvel chip 9123 and driver (newest)18.104.22.1686 support TRIM or not. W7-64 trim ready. Thanks"
