Not an Apple fan, but I would point out that Tegra2 and Texas Instrument's OMAP 4430 SoCs are both based on dual Cortex A9 chips. Guess what Apple's A5 uses?

Watch the Linus tech tips videos on the playbook. It actually looks pretty sweet, performance and feature wise. I also like the smaller size compared to competing tablets. People will argue that it hasn't matured yet but RIM is pushing out software updates for this thing like no ones business (or so i've read). Definitely potential I think.

Oh... and I despise Apple....call me biased lol.

Being a BB user I was waiting for it's release.

Tried it in store when it came out but found it kinda clunky to use ...

I will stay with my netbook for now.

I have an eeepad ... be very aware it DOES NOT play high profile 720/1080p video (aka ... any scene release) you will have to re-encode everything to low profile first.

Most are hoping the 3.1 update coming in June will fix it, with the overclock kernel. However many others are saying it's a hardware limitation.
