I've been pleasantly surprised at how many things I can do with my TouchPad, it's really made my life easier. Now that Splashtop is out, I have absolutely no need for a laptop.

I was surprised though, at how quickly and easily I could touch-type on it, I expected to be miserable with a virtual keyboard.
As far as choppiness - I think that anyone experiencing it is simply blaming the TouchPad first and not looking at other factors. I can play a 1080p video from youtube flawlessly, and have run flash videos that others have complained about without a problem. There's a thread around here complaining about slow ping times, but in my experience the TouchPad has been just as fast as anything else out there. My TouchPad is actually better playing video than my desktop is. So my advice to you is that if you do run into problems, don't just blame it on the TouchPad and move on, look at the network you're connected to, I can't be the only one with a smoothly running TouchPad (oh, and it's running the stock kernel as well).
Ultimately, if you're good with spending $240 on it, then go for it.
