John Gruber has an interesting take on the merits of an Apple tablet. He basically asks the question of why you would want to buy an Apple tablet if you already own an iPhone/iPod Touch and a MacBook.
His take is that it will effectively replace the MacBook as a sort of convergence device that adds more functionality than the iPhone but leaves out the hard computing aspects such as photoshopping etc. You would instead have an iPhone, an Apple tablet and an iMac. Interesting take in my opinion!
Contrary to his usual advance info he says he knows nothing about the Apple tablet and knows no one who has even seen it. That certainly puts into perspective the otherwise large amount of people who claim to have seen and played with the Apple tablet.
For anyone following Apple rumors this is definitely an interesting article.
