20 Billion transistors? What is a transistor in an iPad: what does one look like and how is it made?

Looking on the comparability between iPads, the variety of transistors in an iPad regularly blows my thoughts.

Not being a pc {hardware}, design engineer, even with some Google looking I don’t have a good really feel for precisely what one of these 20 billion transistors appears to be like like. And how do 1000 of them subsequent to one another look like? Can anybody educated chime in?The undeniable fact that 20 billion of something prices lower than $1200 sort of blows my thoughts.
