That's a pretty good price for a nice tablet with lots of storage. I've considered them over time (also not an Apple user, yet), but it's real hard to get interested in them with their limitations, as I don't read many books; I do quite a bit of browsing and Netflixing, but I think I'd still rather have the nice track pad, decent keyboard, great speakers and real OS/browser for browsing and media.
In the end, though, what sells you on anything is the software, so I am interested to see what other people and yourself find particularly useful as geeks on an iPad that keep your interest and provide real utility over a laptop/netbook!
