Well that depends on what problem you're trying to solve :) If you need 
a tablet form factor for an APRS station then this would be a great 
option as long as it has the needed IO. I would probably use a netbook 
with windows and aprsis32. If I wanted to run xastir I'd put a linux 
distro on that netbook. But I like keyboards and touchpads :)

Like many I'm excited to see the raspberry pi come out, hopefully any 
day now. That would make one sweet embedded radio connected computer, 
APRS and otherwise.
