I'm personally thinking of picking up a 16GB ASUS Transformer because it's so dirt cheap (relatively speaking). I've got about $100 in credit card rewards saved up and about $160 in Staples Rewards from in-store promotions and ink recycling. Once Staples gets it in stock, I'm gonna bite the bullet.

I got the wife a Nook and loaded it with a rooted version of Froyo (after first giving the pre-release Honeycomb a spin). She uses it, so it was well worth the $250.
Can't see spending more than that though until they advance a bit further past what my phone already does.
I bought a netbook for myself for less money than most tablets and I use it a lot more then I ever used my last personal laptop.

I bought a Nook Color, rooted, and the thing is wonderful as a tablet. In a pinch I can share the connection from my DInc to it, and that's all I've ever needed it to do... with Froyo or CM7 on it, the thing really is a good little, cheap tablet.
