Should I get an iPad?

I have been pretty pleased with my Asus EeePC netbook but there are a few niggling issues with it (speed) and there are some use cases it just doesn't work well for (PDF reading for example). Equally my iPod touch is extremely useful but the screen size really hampers its use for web browsing.

The new Apple iPad seems to fit right between these two devices. It's smaller and lighter than the netbook but has a decent sized screen to enable it to be useable for web browsing and PDF reading should be no problem. Plus all my existing iPod applications will work on it.

The big question is how much will it cost when Apple eventually release it in the UK (now slated for the end of April)?
