I think it depends on what your using it for, if it's media consumption, then this would probably win out (except 16 gigs isn't a whole lot when you think that the resolution data need is probably 4x as much). If it's productivity, I'd go with a netbook. At 500 though it's skirting the lower end laptop range.
I think they priced it in a good range, I'm not going to buy one, but I still think they priced it in the right range. I also didn't realize how expensive the kindle was.
If you can stream from iTunes on your PC, then the capacity becomes a moot issue. To me, this would be awesome.
I don't think it becomes moot. It's a multimedia device, when I'm at home I'm in front of my tv or desktop. If I'm out and about then the size of the drive is important because ATT only provides EDGE in my area (it's the same cost as tethering off my smartphone, which is more flexible, but less ideal).
