My husband and I both have the wifi model with the latest firmware (we gave our original Kobos to our 8 year old twin daughters, so we do have those as well) and page turns are pretty zippy on the wifi. It's not instantaneous, but it's less than one second. FWIW, I don't use the Kobo desktop to sync my ebooks. I download to ADE and either sideload through that program or Calibre.
