Microsoft should make a home tablet PC

I saw a blog by Robet Scoble about the tablet PC’s and I think Microsoft should push the OEM’s for a consumer tablet pc one thats cool (not just for geeks like me) that uses the power of a local pc and ties the home pc/table thing together.
I guess the smart display was along the lines I am thinking, but with out high costs

I want to be able to sit on the couch with while my wife is watching TV and be able to browse the web, watch some recorded tv etc
I do the web bit with my pocket pc but a tablet is a better form factor.
Price would be the key, it needs to be consumer priced
Anybody else think thats good?

Windows Media Center

I have been using Windows Media Center (2005) on my main pc for a couple of months now, I use it for recording and watching TV, playing music and reading RSS feeds (via a program I have been writing)

The system works realy well and has total changed how we watch TV.

The only thing that amazes me is the fact that nobody knows about this product, one of Microsoft best developments to me it seems like they are keeping it a secret. If more people could see it I am sure more people would want one.

If you havn’t seen one checkout http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/mediacenter/default.mspx

I saw one of the MS developers blogs talking about the same thing
