Lightbulb Tablet PCs - Yay or Nay?

I want to get a tablet PC, price is the only thing holding me back. Everybody I know thinks they're stupid. I would say that most would agree with them. I see them disappearing off the market. The only ones left are $2200 ish plus (if you want to go with a company you think you might have overheard the name of on a bus ride a few months back). So... Tablet PCs? Yay or Nay?

IMHO tablets are too pricey. I would get a decent light-weight laptop instead.
