Would be neat if it had output for Monitor/Keyboard external.
Would be neat if it had dual CPUs. One for when plugged into AC (fast and powerful). One for on battery (slow and battery saving). Maybe two modes? Use as PC mode and Use as ebook reader/web surfing/email (Lite use).
Would be neat if could be used as external touchpad for Macs.

Having answered that i think we all may be way off. When the iPhone announced it has so much more than people thought or expected in a completely new way of doing things. I think much of the above might be the baseline with alot of magic stuff on top.
