Editorial Bob Cringeley makes a bold statement in a blog post responding to Apple's iCloud announcement: "Jobs is going to sacrifice the Macintosh in order to kill Windows." He says, "The incumbent platform today is Windows because it is in Windows machines that nearly all of our data and our ability to use that data have been trapped. But the Apple announcement changes all that. Suddenly the competition isn't about platforms at all, but about data, with that data being crunched on a variety of platforms through the use of cheap downloaded apps."

The ViewSonic sounds affordable for what it is.

I'd totally buy one, if I had a use for a tablet...

Indeed, $250 sounds like a fair price for the evolution of the PMP that most modern tablets are. If the thing is well-built and sufficiently polished.
