I think one of my favourite parts of the Touchpad is the Browser:
I use it for checking up on news, but also, a lot of the time, for watching online videos. I don't use netflix, but armed with Project-Free-TV, Megavideo and the whole slew of flash-based online TV and Movies, I'm more than content.
I really think that a big selling point is the ability to play flash extremely well (It pulls off 1080p on Youtube without a hitch).
And all in all, the experience of using the Touchpad has been a delight, especially because of the great homebrew community that has sprung up around this Tablet, making it take full advantage of it's somewhat high-end specs (Kernels taking it up to 1.5GHz, Patches reducing logging and increasing sensitivity... And whatever else you need it to do or not do).
However, this is all relative to the price. I would not be happy with the Touchpad if it cost me over $300 because of the plastic construction and some of the OS quirks. That isn't to say that this is a bad tablet, far from it! But I would think twice before getting it at anything over that pricepoint. Under that, it's a bargain on a great tool.
So I say, go ahead!
