They're basically just laptops with stylus screens--and the few I've tried (it's been a couple years) the stylus writing wasn't very responsive.
So give me something with a 10" or so screen, less than an inch thick, with a very responsive stylus screen that's super easy to write on and I'll be very interested.
It really depends on the stylus tech being used. I personally have refused to use any thing that requires the use of a stylus, but isn't based on Wacom technology. All the ones that use styluses not based on Wacom, tend to be a bit poor in quality, with issues like need for batteries, responsiveness, etc. The ones that just have a normal touch screen, like most PDAs have, usually are ok.
