Glad you're happy with your it. I've experienced Windows 7 on that level of hardware, and I'm not much of a fan - at least not when you compare it to instant-on tablets. Netbooks are fine if your uses are limited, but running Outlook 2010 on a netbook isn't a great experience in my some of the more advanced things you list as possibilities wouldn't be things I'd want to do. Maybe it'a a patience thing.

As for the XOOM, there are some things I really like about it, and some things I really don't. It's all about what your needs are though; when it comes to email/web/multimedia, it's quite capable - though I think any time it loads Flash in the banner it kind of drags. The drawbacks are the apps - there just aren't enough that are optimised for Honeycomb. I'm about 70% sure I'll be returning it next week.
