When it comes down to it, some people just have the money. Most people don't so the value math presented above is correct for most people. However, there are tens of millions of people who already have all of those higher value products listed above so the tablet then becomes practical if you've also got the cash for it.

I see what you mean... But I have cash and I am a total gadget whore, believe me. I still cant see getting a tablet at $500 ever. I would say the new iPad is probably the best thing available, but I wouldn't pay more than $250-$300 max for it myself. I got an HP touchpad at $150 after the firesale from an ebay resale. It's great for the price.

I'd pay the $450 for those features and I'm not a gadget whore at all but in all honesty, I'm looking for a 7" with those features.

I was in the same mind set as you.
So I went and got a convertible netbook/tablet, real keyboard and OS can't be beat.
The touch screen/tablet mode has it's advantages but so does a laptop form factor.
Needless to say if you are a consumer of content... A tablet is fine, if you create allot of content, you need a real keyboard and OS.
