As a laptop? Good replacement. As a gamer tool? nah not really...

"As a laptop? Good replacement" depends on what you use it for. Just surfing the web maybe but for work typing on the screen and not a keyboard is much harder. Spencer Kelly (UK BBC tech guy) basically said on a programme what apple (with the ipad) has done is sell you a laptop without a keyboard or mouse. The term laptop is iffy their as well as they are less powerful for the same price of a laptop

For gamers it might seem useful to put all the HUD on the controller but looking down for ammo count when its on the screen seems a little backward to me. It is useful to have a map or something like that(pause menu or inventory) but is the expensive worth it at the moment. Probably not but when the price drops it may be. As a standalone console its stupid because of smart phones doing very similar things but smaller and also has the function of making a call.
