If you have enough fast attack slots you should definitely have seperate squads for four reasons:
1.Say a dev squad fires at your speeders, if there in the same squad then the single dev squad can kill them all in one turn. If the speeders are seperated then the devs can only destoy one a turn.
2. If their together and one speeder gets immobilised then the other either has to ditch it or hang around and die.
3. If the two land speeders are seperate then they can shoot different enemy units.
4.They are more manouvrable! They can be on seperate sides of a squad for instance if they don't have to stay in coherency.

But you are correct in what you are saying. Two squads equals two vehicles destroyed per turn (if in range) instead of one vehicle overkilled. And if they survive they can claim two loot counters instead of just one.
[QUOTE=phoebus;785925]How do you play your speeders if you are able to get them immobilised???QUOTE]
If a speeder moves over 6 inches and it is immobilized it crashes and is destroyed. If, however, it moved exactly 6 inches or less, then if it is immobilized it floats to the ground and can still shoot.

Just out of curiousity, whats next? Maybe you can make an issue about the fact that GW didn't define the action of 'rolling' a D6 to actually mean dropping it in such a manner as to produce a random result; thus making it perfectly acceptable to just put them down with the face up of your choice?
So you can:
Go fast, get Penetrates downgraded to Glances but crash on an immobilized.
Go slow, be penetrated, but not be killed by immobilized.
It works out overall to be a 5+ on a Glance to kill a fast skimmer, whereas due to its light armour a slow skimmer will most likely be penetrated and killed on a 4+.
Always go more than 6" with av10 skimmers, unless up against opponents with only S4 guns who can only glance anyway.
