There has been way to much negative feedback on the "RUMORED" price of the Xoom. Many are saying you can "buy a laptop for that price" YES YOU CAN...if you want WINDOWS. The Xoom runs the Android OS (just to clear things up). If you know of a Laptop/Netbook that runs ANDROID for the same price as the Xoom...please let us know. Otherwise, different people have different uses for different devices (SHOCKER I KNOW). If you prefer to buy a laptop over the Xoom for that price...then buy one!
