I went to buy a playbook and in that line I saw may apple trolls who waited 15 to 30 so they could look at it first and talk nonsense. From the specs to all the rest of things that playbook offers I believe it has potential. The tablet itlsef is just bare bone right now. RIM has announced in 2 months or so they will update it and will put in native email,calender and other crucial applications. I for one would love to see a BBM on a playbook. Or a small text messaging program.
Also keep in mind that they are working to get android apps in the playbook. That would mean a whole new door of opportunities will arise. The playbook will certainly make me replace my laptop. Instead of hauling a bag of laptop I could use the simple tablet.
