no....live requires 1.8Ghz G4/G5 MAC or faster and at LEAST 2GB of RAM
ipad has only a 1Ghz dual core with only 512MB of RAM.....
live would probably blow your ipad up 8O
:D sike no, i don't know, it would probably just crash as soon as you tried to open it.
it would be cool if you could though...i pads are wayy cheaper than macbook pros. that's for sure!!
i think there is an app. that you can control live with though??
edit>i started writing this before CIDS threw his comment up....so yeah,new developments(for me), there is an app. to CONTROL live with an ipad, but you still can't install live on your ipad.

Ye lads seem to be a bit confused on what an iPad actually is.
Its not a matter of "If you tried to open live on it then it would explode",
its more a case that you couldnt even _try_ to get live to open.
An iPad is not, in any way shape or form, a PC or a Mac,
And is not a full replacement for one.

It doesn't open either .exe or OS X applications.

*sound of joke going over my head* :)

My point stands though, a fair few people seem to be under the impression that the iPad is a full-scale PC/Mac shrunk down,
then they get all uppity when they realise they cant put their favourite bittorrent client on there.
