Depends on what it is. I'd have to see it first. If it were just a big iPhone/iPod touch, I'm not sure if I would be interested. I want a full featured device running snow leopard.

I want a tablet PC I can use as a digital sketchbook so it would have to be reasonably big while still light and offer the pressure sensitivity of an Intuos with the specs to at least run Pixelmator, if not Photoshop or Painter.

If such a thing already exists, please let me know.

I cringe at the thought. Have you seen the ModBook and all the Windows-based tablets. Having to use a stylus to do something a mouse was and keyboard were designed for is not ideal. We need a version of OS X that is designed around the HW, like the iPhone. Basically, its meeting about halfway between Mac OS X and iPhone OS, with a new UI that is ideal for finger-based, multi-touch display.

With what Apple has been doing with the glass for all displays, including their trackpads, I dont think pressure sensitive is feasible. A pressure sensitive, capacitance pen may be in order for that type of work.

Yes. For the cool factor.
