To me a slate is
~good media usage
Its a nice screen that is fairly portable, so it better be suited to videos and general media navigation, preferably with some sort of software bias.
lets face it, you chose it over a netbook to show off!
~enough of a computer that it can exist as my secondary device
seems fair really, for 500 etc (I'm looking at you, Apple)

Then there are the technicals. Its well suited to photoediting, so I need to have cs4, or at least gimp, plus usb slots for cameras. And I need speed, because I will need it quickly for on the spot web browsing or scripts. It could do with cross over skills, like ebook capabilities.

I guess that it should just be a netbook that I actually want, rather than accept as a practical tool
