I like the basic idea: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2259162,00.asp . If you really don't want to bothered with having to update or get into the nuts and bolts of Linux, having your hand held and the system semi locked down is a nice way for anyone to make the switch from Windows or Mac.
You get a nice service but it all is a tad expensive in the end I think. Basically it is a pentium-III like machine and duo core laptops can be had for the same price in the end. The nice thing is the support you get and the fact that you don't have to cough up the dough all at once.
