Besides the fact that it isn't a Mac (speaking about the quality, the OS, etc.) - and ignoring the fact that there isn't any app store like the Mac has -- the introduction of these slates will be at a price similar to that of the iPad. That means for once you can get a Mac for relatively the same price as a PC. Why haven't big business bought Mac's over the past years? One reason - price. If you remove that price differential the iPad will slaughter the competition.
In other words - everyone wants a Mac - but many people don't think they can afford one.
Maybe - we'll have to see the line-up of models / prices / features to see how they stand side by side.
What I do know is that if I wanted to buy my kid a laptop this past Christmas - I could buy a PC for $400 and an entry level MacBook for $1000.
It is cheaper and supposedly faster than the iPad. Seeing how it runs Windows 7 Home Premium it doesn't need an App store. It also supports Flash. Big question is will the WiFi work 100% out of the box or will you have to get an Apple Airport to have connectivity.
