Tablet users -- do you use your tablet much?

I'm tempted to finally get a tablet, but worried that I might not use it enough to justify spending £400. I guess I'd play games on the larger screen and maybe watch movies on the train..... Though another voice in my head says tablets are pointless! oO

I bought one, I never used it. It was sold a few months later. Thankfully it was an HP TouchPad which I'd bought for £89, so I made a tidy profit when I sold it ;).

Every day.
As an eReader on my daily commute, also as a 'newspaper' I down load the metro sometimes before I set off for work. Also I use to to watch downloaded movies (MKV, MP4 & AVI) on my TV. I often use it at work too when my corporate Internet is too slow to bear. We've got Wifi in the building so I sometimes do research on it instead.
It's a 7" single core Honeycomb Archos thing with 8Gb onboard and a 32Gb sd card. It cost me about £120 when I got it and it would probably be about £50 to buy in todays tech.
I wouldn't spend £400 on one. I do have an iPad 2 but it doesn't get used outside the house really (too big for commuting).
I for one wouldn't be without it.
