I'd buy one were it cheap enough (it wouldn't be).

I don't see why its price structure be more than a laptop or "smartphone". It should be less than a "smartphone" offering similar compute capability.

The per unit manufacturing costs should be lower - fewer parts, fewer assembly steps. There would be less ongoing engineering costs - e.g. when 3G/4G becomes obsolete.
Product lifetime should be longer.
